LAING PLUMBING AND HEATING ALGONA PLUMBING AND HEATING SAND A PLUMBING AND HEATING IRONS PLUMBING AND HEATING Hot Gloves LIVERMORE - Mrs. Vernon Kramer had a very unusual experience Saturday night about 9 o'clock, one which could happen to any housewife. She had washed two pairs of men's work gloves in a pan of gasoline outside of the house then brought them in and put them in the automatic washer which was in the bathroom. They had run thru one cycle and when she re-set it to run them thru again there was an explosion which blew the lid off the machine, blew out some windows in other rooms of the house, knocked plaster off the walls and her face, arms, ankles and some of her hair was burned; not seriously, more like a bad sunburn. Mrs. Kramer feels that she was very lucky not to have been more severly burned or injured.
