A Photograph Establishment Cleaned oat nnd Fire Persons Injured A very serious gaB explosion took place in the photographic establishment of Mr. C. B. Conant, at No. 257i Middle street, yesterday morning. Mr. Conant occupies rooms in the Hanson block on Middle street, opposite the junction of Freet street. The third story of this block contains three rooms, a reception room in front and a finishing room in the rear, with a small room in the center connecting the other two, while the upper story is used for an operating room. Mr. Conant has not been us ing gas of late, but early in the week he called upon the gas company and asked to have a meter set. When the meter was put in a leak was noticed, and the gas man was asked to stop it, but he replied that it was not his business and departed. Mr. Conant sent to Mr. Ken neth McDonald Thursday night asking that a man he sent to stop the leak. Mr. McDonald sent his brother, John, who searched diligently but failed to discover the leak. When the clerk arrived yesterday morning he noticed that the gas was still escaping, and after opening all the windows, he sent for the same gas titter to make another search. While a boy was gone after a gas fitter the clerk discovered the gas coming from a gas pipe in the ceiling of the oentec room. To prevent a further waste of gas he procured a cork stopper with which he stopped the flow. The gas man soon arrived and procuring a flight of steps, proceeded to put on a cap in place of the cork. While do ing this the clerk and Bichard Craig, one of the assistants in the establishment, steadied the steps. The smell of gas was so strong that Mr. McDonald was obliged to come down from the steps three times to get his breath, and when he came down the last time the clerk left Mr. Craig to hold the steps and went into the ope rating rooms above, leaving McDonald anc Craig in this room alone, Miss Hooper, a re toucher of negatives, in the reception room, and Miss. Kimball, one of the finishers, in the rear room. After screwing on the cap. Mr. McDonald lighted a match and applied it to the pipe to see if the leak was stopped. The experiment was not very satisfactory, as further results showed. There was one loud explosion and all was quiet. The open doors and windows were all that saved the building from a complete wreck. As it was, the contents of the second story were completely wrecked. The doors lead ing to the reception room was torn off its hinges and carried half way up stairs, breaking the banisters. The door leading from the reception vy »uo bcuvvi ivurn nas iuiu pieces auu uuu ed into the latter room, while the four occu pants were thrown about very carelessly, Mr. McDonald was thrown from bis high position to one end of the room, burning his face and hands badly and cutting his right hand severe ly as he fell. Mr. Craig was thrown across the room and badly burned. Miss Kimball was thrown from her seat and her face and hands burned quite badly. Miss Hooper escaped a terrible death by chance. A moment befor the explosion she was seated at a table befor the open window, but just before the shock came she got up and stood between the win dows. When the explosion came the chair and two tables before the window were hurled across the street with great violence. A bird cage containing a bird was thrown into Hay’s apoth ecary store, but when it struck the bird was not there. A picture hanging between the windows wa3 taken from the frame and carried clear across the street. Nearly all the elegant frames and pictures in the reception room were smash ed. This room was indeed a sorry sight to be hold. The plastering was torn off in many places and the walls badly cracked. The injury to the building will be about $400, while Mr. Con ant’s loss must be near $1000. Mr. McDonald was able to converse last eve ning although he was suffering pretty severely. He says it is not true that he came down off the steps three times tc get his breath, but on the contrary he says that he could not smell the gas at all when he lighted the match. After the explosion he went up Middle street and down Federal to his brother’s shop unassisted. The statement in regard to his coming down to get his breath was obtained from the clerk, who was present and saw the whole affair. A Curious Craft and a Strange Man. - More than six years since a New Brunswick farmer living on the Upper St. John, took it into bis head to build a vessel in which to take his family to Australia. He went to St. John and there visited a ship-yard for the first time in his life and examined the build of a schoon er. Returning home with a few tools and a book on navigation, he worked>11 the time he could get days and studied with the aid of his wife his “navigation book” evenings. At the end of six years his vessel was completed. --““to VU^ 1>»UIV down to St. John. At that time he had ex pended every dollar he could raise, including the proceeds of the sale of his farm. Mr. Pom eroy, an American shipper, saw the craft and fiuding that it wa3 an object of curiosity, ad vanced tbe money for an outfit and chartered her to take to Philadelphia. The craft is said not only to be a great curiosity in point of con struction, but has numerous inventions never before seen on a vessel of any kind which Mr. Draper, tbe backwoods builder, has studied out himself. Draper has chartered bis vessel for three months in order to get the means of tak ing his family on a trip to Anstralia. The vessel is of about fifty tons burden. Sbe is expected here every day and will remain in tbe harbor several days. A Pastor’s Welcome.—India street parish assembled at the vestry of their church last evening for the purpase of welcoming back their pastor, Bev. George W. Bicknell, who has been on a vacation. The vestry was crowd ed, and the welcome was a most cordial one. Mr. Bicknell and wife entered the vestry at half past seven o’clock, and were greeted by a song of welcome by tbe Choral Union. Mr. Bicknell replied In a lew very appropriate re marks. A sumptuous supper followed, after which a social time was enjoyed. There is to be but one service each Sunday at this church for the next three months. The Bouquet of Music.—Ira C. Stockbridge has for sale the second series of “The Bouquet ol Music,” a neatly gotten up volume which embraces forty pieces, 160 pages, of select music, bound handsomely in cloth and gold. Before binding the music retails for sixteen dollars, but in its collected form sells at a dol lar and a half. The collection contains amon g others selections from Wagner, Verdi, Meyer bier, Flotow, Auber, Donizetti, Mendelsshon, Gounod, Guug'l, Strauss and Offenbach, and is certainly as good and cheap a collection as is ever offered to the public. Funeral —Tbe funeral of the lxte Master Clarence B. Hawes took place yesterday after noon at the residence of his parents on Lincoln street. There was a large attendance of his companions, including his class at the Congress Square Sunday school and a number of bis school mates from the Chestnut street school. Bev.

Mr. Cabl et’s well kDown impersonation of the leading partin this play will be sufficient of itself to draw a house. Business Changes.—We have been shown a list of 100 names of persons who have gone out of the l'quor business in this city within the last year and a half. The owner of the list does not claim that this effect has been broughl about by any one method, hut by a combination of them all. Personal. Hon. L. A. Emery of Ellsworth is at the Falmouth. U. S. Marshal Marble, wife anil daughter have gone to the Centennial. Mr. M. W. Higgins, the efficient night editor of the Argus, was out yesterday, after nearly two weeks’ confinement to his house with painful illness. Glad to see him about again. Maine Slasher—Leighton’s picture of the famous trotter “Slasher,” now in Hale’s win dow, attracts no little attention from its excel lence as a portraiture. The horse himself is one of the best of the many fine horses which Maine has produced, and has a good record be hind him, and a promising future before. Gen. Tilton has perhaps done more than any other man in the state to introduce and improve fine breeds of horses and cattle, and his success is a merited one. The Museum.—Sheridan & Mack gave an other goo 1 performance at the Museum last evening, but to a small house. Nearly a new programme was presented and the audience were highly pleased with the performance. They give their last performances this after noon and evening when they should have good houses. The farce entitled “Two Orphans” was immensely funny. Elsewhere will be found the card of a num ber of Portland carriage manufacturers, which tells its own story. Suicide in Biddeford —Mr. Zenas Berry, who lived opposite the school house in District No. 10, near the Kennebunkport town line hung himself with a pair of lengtheners from a beam over the wood shed connected with his house, on Thursday forenoon at 10 o’clock. Mr, B. was about 74 years of age, and though of late in poor health, was some years since for a short time deranged. On that morniDg he was in his usual condition, had been to market and took the usual care of his team only a few moments before the) sudden aberration. The neighbors suggest that domestic troubles have hastened his end.
