LONDON, March 15.—A man was blown to pieces at Fenchehurch street station' Friday afternoon by the explosion of a bomb which he was carrying.

When the excitement caused by the explosion subsided it was discovered that a man standing near the person who had dropped the bomb had been injured. The station was also somewhat damaged. It was at first thought that the man who was carrying the supposed bomb was an anarchist, .but it has since been learned that he was not, nor was it a bomb that exploded, but a cylinder of compressed oxygen intended for use in connection with a magic lantern at an entertainment Friday evening.
