the effect was almost instantaneous
and leaving one instance of record
where there were copious quantitiet
of smoke and no fire.
The damage is light: a cracked
plate glass window, singed electric
wiring, a part of the keys of a
linotype melted off and a delicate
shade of mourning on the walls and
ceiling of the room. '
Preparations had been 'made for
the installation of an elecUic pot
under the linotype. This nad made
it necessary to install new wiring.
This had been done, but the old lead

gasoline in his hands for th3 purpose
of refilling the tank. The aforesaid
