A great many people are asking
what particular troubles BROWN'S
Iron Bitters is good for.
It will cure Heart Disease, Paral
ysis, Dropsy, Kidney Disease, Con
sumption, Dyspepsia, Rheumatism,
Neuralgia, and all similar diseases.
Its wonderful curative power is
simply because it purifies and en
riches the blood, thus beginning at
the foundation, and by building up
the system: drives out all disease.

Two Men Blown Through the Air, Two
Coyered Beneath the Debris and One
Struck With a Piece of Red Hot Iron
-Devastating Work of a Borsted
A frightful boiler explosion occurred
yesterday, about two o'clock, at the
newly opened St. Catherine mine, by
the track of the Air-Line railroad, just
beyond the western suburbs of the city,
in which four men were badly hurt.one
of whom was not expected to be alive
this morning, and the injuries of an
other are thought to be fatal. A few
minutes after the departure of the At
lanta bound train yesterday, the crowd
that still remained around the depot,
were startled by the echoes of a deep
rumbling noise, and looking in the di
rection of the departing train, a dense
volume of steam and smoke, mixed
with flying pieces of timber, were seen
to shoot up in the air just in front of
the disappearing passenger train. The
buildings over the shaft of the mine
could be plainly seen from the depot,
and at the first sound of the explosion
thosewho turned their eyes in the di
rection saw the boiler house go up in a
heap to the height of about twenty feet
and drop back to the ground. At the
same time great pieces of the boiler
were sent in different directions, while
splinters, bricks, pieces of iron and
heavy timbers fairly filled the air. The
whole thing was over in an instant al
most, and a dense cloud of smoke hov
eringover the place seived as a guide
to the crowd who made a rush for the
scene from all the western part of the
city, for the noise of the explosion rat
tied windows for 500 yards around. The
people who reached the scene first.
heard the mingled cries of four maimed
and scalded men, two of whom were
buried under the wreck of the building
and two were lying a short distance
off from the scene of the wreck, whith
er they had been blown by the explo
sion. Behind a pile of cord wood
which was stacked about twenty feet
from the engine house, a colored man
named Bill Wheeler.who was employed
as engineer, was found covered with
dust and ashes, with his leg broken and
hip dislocated, and hands scalded and
burned almost beyond recognition.
Close by Wheeler lay the insensible
body of Abram Maxwell, another col
ored engineer. Maxwell's left side,
from head to foot, was horribly scalded
and there can be no possible hope of
hi3 recovery. He was lying under a
piece of heavy timber and when they
pulled him out his left breast peeled off
in large, sickening splotches. His scalp
was also terribly gashed by flying
bricks, and his face was cooked by the
steam. The only sign of life detected,
was his slow, heavy breathing.
Mr. G. W. Pitcher, the superintendent
of the mine, and Mr. Joe Roark, an
attache, were found under the debris,
and were extricated with some difficul
ty. A large beam rested upon Mr. Ro
ark and on top of this was a mingled
mass of poles, splinters and boiler iron.
He was taken out in a badly shattered
condition. The broken bones in his
left arm and leg were protruding
through the flesh, his chest was shat
tered and the left side of his face was
seared with a mass of hot ashes.
Mr. Pitcher was rescued from the
falling building almost entirely unin-
inred. but so dazed and stunned that
he could not talk in an intelligible man
ner. He was placed in a buggy and
flpnt to his home.
In the meantime an engine and car
of the Richmond and Danville railroad
had arrived at the scene and Mr. Roark
was laid upon a stretcher and placed in
the car, and was carried to the home of
Mr. Frank Snider, his brother-in-law, a
short distance this side of the junction
The wounded colored men were carried
to their respective homes, followed by
In the first excitement it was not no
ticed that a colored boy, named Henry
Adams, was sitting a short distance off,
badly wounded in the head, having
been struck over the eye by a piece of
red hot iron. He was the least hurt of
The scene of the explosion was one of
dire wreck and ruin. Not the. slightest
mark remained to show where the
boiler had stood. The boiler exploded
in its centre and fragments were hurl
ed south, east and north. One piece
landed at the creek on Wadsworth s
farm, almost half a mile away, another
went over the Air Line track and land
ed in a wheat field, and another: went
over a tall poplar tree and fell ts the
ground, bent and twisted like a piece of
lead. For a radius of fifty yards, the
ground was strewn with splinters, tim
ber, biieks and pieces of iron. Sar
roundinr the mine was a large field,
from which the wheat had just been
gathered, and the dry straw was set on
fire, and the entire field, about four
acres was burned over. A crowd who
were hunting around for evidences of
the force of the explosion, found ADram
Maxwell's hat lodged in a bush about
twenty yards from the mine, and the
windlass to the pump was found in the
tmrnorl whftat field.
At the time of the explosion Mr. Ro
ark. with Wheeler and Maxwell was
standing at the furnace aoor. Max
well, who had been engineer during the
morning, had just turned the engine
over to Wheeler, who was to run it
rlnrinv the evening, when without a
moment's warning the explosion came
Wheeler was blown thirty feet into the
air and fell on his knees. Maxwell
was blown almost as high, and Mr. Ro
ark was thrown to the ground and cov
ered with debris. That either of them
escaped instant death seems miracu
The cause of the explosion is attribu
ted to the great pressure of steam car
ried. The boiler was 15 horse power,
and was made to djuve 40 norse power

The Summer Dust.
To the Editor of the Observer.
Now that we have plentvof water for
the use of the city we ought not to suf
fer from dust.
The Board of Aldermen might go
further and anorooriate a reasonable
sum per month to enable some reliable
person to emoiov at lease two strong
water wagons, two horses each, like
those used for the purpose in other cit
ies, te sprinkTe our streets uniformly.
The wagons to stop ac a nyarant ami
fill dd as fast as thev are emptied.
The plugs in front of a few stores
will not do the work, and it will be im
possible to eet everybody to goto the
"Merchant" is right. We can avoid
much of the dust by taking measures
within easy reach to prevent it, and
the cost ought to be paid out of the
city treasury, because in that way ev
p.rvhndv will be made to contribute to
the expense. We regard the suggest
ion as a good one just at this time.
