NORWOOD, March 2S A serious dynamite explosion occurred on the site of the new Morrill memorial library building early this morning. Four men were employed in blasting tVie cellar at the time. It seems that last night, shortly before the end of the day's work, a boring had been filled with a dynamite cartridge, whloh, when the fuse was ignited, failed to explode. The cartridge was left undisturbed, and It was decided by contractor Wills to make a new boring, and try another dynamite enlarge, rather than disturb the old one. John McGann of Carvton had charge of the blasting. He was ordered to make a likely to take a prize, could be assisted by the members of the other local associations, instead of their helping tubs of other towns to defeat one from Marble-head. Caot John Spinney, one of the oldest members, spoke, and was followed by Christopher Burridge, foreman of the Pickett tub; John T. Adams, foreman of hose 2: Thomas H.

The doors were open, and Bourke saw a brand new market basket standing in the passage. The top of It was covered with a milk-white cloth, the edges of which were richly embroidered.

This queer belief obtains in suih widely separated dis tricts as aoutn Airica and Norway and China and Australia. In Greece thev Bay that anybody who runs against the end of the rainbow will have his or her sex instantly changed. In France and ;ndia to pass under the rainbow has a blmllar effect. According to the laws of gooi societv n China young widows should not remarry. Widowhood is. therefore held in the highest esteem, and the older thn widow grows the more agreeablo her position becomes. 1 In the time of Fliny silk was supposed to be a vegetable product and his ' Nat ural History" contains a long storv of the way in which it was picked from trees in the East Indies and spun and woven Into fabrics.

I the basket, find revealed the flushed ! face of a 3mlllng Infant. It was looking up at the big policeman, and laughing at him. After Bourke had recovered from the first shock of his discovery he carried the basket and Its animated bundle to the station hor&e. There the sergeant at the desk undid the coverings and lifted the Infant from the basket. The baby was apparently In the very best of spirits. "You can see he's an aristocrat," said the sergeant. The baby was dressed In a white gown trimmed with lace. The tiny feet were incased In pink bootees, knit of soft and warm worsted. The bottom of the basket served as an impromptu trunk. Every toilet article the most exacting infant ever required was In that bas He was walking s.long the New York & New Eneland railroad track, which runs parallel with the Pawtuxet valley j ket.

A banquet was served to 80 members and guests. It was a brilliant affair and after cigars were lighted and spcechiraklng commenced, considerable Wit was intermingled with th serious Pres Calvin K.

Naham Baldwin, a well-known figure of Eoston. died yesterday morning at his home, 7 Mystic si.ln the Charlestown district, at the age of 72 years. Mr Baldwin has been ill for two weeks. Paralysis of the brain Is given as the cause of his death. He leaves a wife ami five children. Mr Raid win Is better known as "Grand-slre" Baldwin the drum maker. He was born In Boston and has passed all of his life in the city during the Kreater part of which he has manufactured drums. He first learned the trade of a winter at Vose & Read's, then at the head of Lincoln wharf. In 1818 he Joined the original Charlestown band as drummer. It was also in this year that he made his first drum. He traveled for over six years with Father Kemp through nearly the whole of New England and many other parts of the country. Two years before the war he was engaged by John C. Haynes & Co. and has been with them ever since at work constantly in making all sorts of drums from a big double bass down to a tenor snare drum with tin sides, which were so populai 20 years ago when the silver cornet bands were In vogue. Tha war furnished the opportunity of Mr Baldwin's life. Hardly a Massachusetts regiment went to the front without a dozen of his drums. Although Mr Baldwin and his assistants worked hard In those days, the drums could not be turned out fast enough to meet the demands. Many drums were sent to Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont and other states, while not a few found their way across the Potomac line. Gllmore at the close of the war claimed the services of "Grandsire" Baldwin, and the old gentleman not only made drums for the band, but he beat them as well. The peace jubilee, however. presented to him the opportunity of making those gigantic drums that beat th- time in those festival days. For the nrst Jubilee he made a drum which measures 6 feet across the head and 30 inches in width, but the second was the one that broke all previous records, and, in fact, holds It at the present time. It was 12 feet across the head and 4 feet along the sides, and the shell had to be brought from Maine on the deck of a steamer because of Its Immense size, while the head Itself was made of pieced skins. Every one who went to the jubilee remembers It as standing right in front of the organ with Mr Baldwin presiding with his big drumstick. When (lilmore went to New York in 1877 every inducement was offered "Grandsire" to go over with him, but he had become so attached to his business that nothing could persuade him to leave, and since then he has appeared in public but very little. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon from his late residence, at 2 o'clock. WEYMOUTH, board of selectmen met yesterday afternoon at the town hall, chairman Willis presiding. Messrs Chas. J. Hollls and T. B. Loud were appointed special officers, and assigned to the smelt brooks for a shcrt period. Considerable time was spent In discussing the matter of appointing a superintendent of streets. No decision was made, as the board wishes to interview the several applicants for the position, and action will probably be taken at their meeting Monday. The appointment of the liquor officers will also be made Monday. Tae Wessagussett club held its regular monthly banquet and "smoker" at the rooms on Bridge st last evening. The club entertained as special guests Sidney Dunbar of Belfast, Me, and Chas. Burreil of East Weymouth.

March 28 The Journal this morning prints the following under date of Knoxville. Tenn, March 27: ultral Bacon, who had been a prominent figure In Roane county matters, both mercantile and political, killed himself at Kingston today. He chos" a method so terrible and unusual that the entire community was shocked. During the progr. HS of the Himes murder trial, Bacon was a leading witness. His testimony whs of great importance, and the attorneys on one side found It necessary to get rid of its effects. An indictment for perjury resulted. The charge caused Bacon to suffer mentally until he became deranged. Today he went Into the yard, secured a stick of dynamite that had been bought for blasting purposes, quietly laid down on It and lit the fuse. A terrible explosion followed. The man was blown to pieces. If you want to GET A SITUATION remember that Globe Wants have the largest circulation and bring the best results. Try it tomorrow. IS IT LUGH GILSON? Mn Killed by Train at Andcver Thought to be from Abington. LAWRENCE, March 28 The man killed on the Boston &. Maine railroad near Andover last Thursday night is thought to be Hugh Gllson, whose home Is in Abington, Mass. A description of the mnn was read in a paper, and today a telephone message wan received from a relative of Gilson in Boston. Just how the man met his death Is a question. The theory is advanced that he jumped from a moving train and was struck by another train, the blow causing the gash in his forehead. 5 O'CLOCK CANTED TO DIE. Leo L Duca Jumped Into Charles River.

The police say that he had been drinking, apparently. Duca ia 36 years old. and a German. He resided at 2065 Washington st. This morning early he went into a barber shop at 2363 Washington st, and said he wanted a shave. As soon as the barber put Aie razor on his face he jumped up, and exclaimed that an attempt was being made to cut his throat. He said he was a barber himself, and could do his own shaving, whereupon he took the razor and shaved himself. He left the shop in an apparently disturbed state of mind, and the next the police knew of him was when Mrs Sils-bee saw him floating down the Charles rtver- , Nobody who paw Duca in the water can explain why he should have floated, except that he was rather stout, and his surplus tissue may have acted as a life preserver . , At any rate Mr Duca can thank a strange and happy combination of circumstances for his escape from a watery grave.

Ducn, a barber out of work, attempt suicide this morning by jumping into the Charles river from the embankment above Harvard bridge. He was in tha water nearly half an hour and was unconscious when taken out, but he was speedily resuscitated and is now at the city hospital, but little the worse for his adventure. Mrs George S. Silsbee of 512 Beacon st was the first person to see Duca In ihe water. She was In her breakfast room about 8 o'clock, and. happening to look out on the river, saw what she thought was the body of a drowned man floating down the river before the strong northwest wind. She called her husband'", attention to It, and he decided to ring ud station 16 and have the police investigate. Sergt Houghton answered the "phone," and at once dispatched patrolmen Lynch, Mullen and Nutting to the river bank. to take the supposed corpse from the water. When the policemen got to the river they were Joined by patrolman Cratty. In the meantime the man In the water had been seen by persons crossing the bridge, and a crowd had gathered to see what would be done. Superintendent James A. Gorman got his eye on the Moating object from his station at the bridge draw. He launched the lifeboat Harvard, and, accompanied by Thomas Elsworth, set out for the body, which was then about 200 feet above the bridge and about 300 feet from the w all. Mr Gorman had a h.ird pull, as It was blowing fresh, an I there was a nastv chon in the river. The body was setting down under the bridge and was face unward. The crowd on the bank had been en- eavorinc to gei. one of the humane so clety's life preservers ou to the floating man, Dut inougn u neauy reacneu mm .very time it was thrown, he paid no attention to It. Mr Gorman ftnd Mr Ellsworth succeeded in getting the unfortunately placed Duca into the boat. They pulled for a part of the embankment below the bridge where there ia a ladder. The crowd gathered there, and, with tho assistance of the four policemen, Duca was hauled out to the embankment. He was taken Into the stable of J. B. Case, in the rear of 468 Beacon st. There was no s'.gn of life, but no time was lost in getting to work on him. There were four doctors in the crowd that had gathered, Dr Henry Dalton of Massachusetts av, Cambridge; Dr M. L Brown of Allston, Dr W. P. Derby of "21 Marlboro st and Dr Henry J. Barnes of 429 Beacon st. They set to work, and in a very short time Duca showed signs of consciousness.. The water was kneaded out of him. and he was rolled in several thicknesses of warm stable blankets. Sergt Houguton had ru ig to headquarters for an ambulance, and that at station 4 was s nt to the scene. Duca was put Into It ard taken to the city hospital, wh re ue was soon in a comfortable condition, though somewhat shaken menta'ly. He could glvo no connected account ,f the incidents that had led up to his attempt to commit saiai.i,- hut aain ,i,., he- waa out of, work- anddlscouravrisa. HARRISON -GIMMICK WEDDING. Final Details Were Arranged Yesterday-Wedding Will be One of the Most Beautiful of the Season. NEW YORK, March 28 The Journal this morning prints the following: On Easter Monday at 4 o'clock Mrs Mary Scott Dlmmlck will be married to ex Prcs Benj. Harrison at St Thomas' church. The arrangements for the wedding have been made with secrecy and it was only yesterday that the final details were fully seftled. The spirit of Easter will pervade the ceremonies. While the wedding will be I a very quiet and small affair, to which I nnlv , K . . rol.tlvaa on1 inhmlo f.laniia of Gen Harrison and his futwe bride will be invited. It will be one of the most beautiful of the season. Thorley has been given charge of the floral decorations, which will be arranged under the personal supervision of Mr Humphreys. The church will be like a field of lilies. wlfti palm trees waving above them. The massive oaken reredos will be curtained with palms, laced In an exquisitely delicate arabesque, shaded with purpie ana goirt and warm crimson rrom the stained glass windows. Quantities of white azaleas, flushed with pink, will form a dado for this altar hanging, with here and there bits of deeper rose color, as thoui darkened bv shadows. The altar rail will be hidden by lilies, which will be tied with garlands of bride roses, looped with ribbon, and the choir will be completely hidden be- nina lines, brocaded as It were In grace- sprays against a background or ful tropical foltaKe. The delicate coloring of the ezeleas will be carried out In the altar cloth, a wonderfully beautiful embroidery of white, pink and gold. Tall gilt vases will be arranged on this, overflowing with Easter lilies. The chancel floor around the pulpit and reading desk will be carpeted with azaleas, mlnerled with tender young green ferns, and the steps below will be banked with flowers. In the background, stretching to the galleries, will be garlands of lilies and green, which, on entering the church, will elve the effect of a vista of flowers. This will be seen through an aisle of lilies. Tied to each pew in the center aisie win De a Douquet or faster lilies, tied with bows of broad. White satin ribbon, and a chain of lilies will be thrown across this flower lane to divide the seats assigned to relatives rrom inose or rriends. Those who are In Mrs Dlmmick's con fidence say she will have no brides maids, as widows seldom, if ever have any attendance, except the ushers. The latter have been selected, as has also the best man, but their names are to De Kept secret until Gen Harrison re turns to New York, next FMdav. Mrs Dimmick Is a remarkably hand some woman, and one who understands thorotifAily the art of dressing, so It Is safe to predict that she will make a strikingly effective appearance. There is a quiet dignity about her that will Insure everything connected with her wedding beinjr done in perfect taste Rev Dr John Wesley Brown, rector of 01 inomas cnurcn, will perrorm the ceremony, and an elaborate musical program vlll be rendered by ftie quartet choir, supplemented by the large cnorus or mixed voices, under trie direction of Dr Warren, who will preside at me organ.
