Theimfortunatc younp man was blown a considerable distance and was injured by the fall, as well as being frightfully burned. His face and left hand caught the bulk of the flames and the left hand was burned so that the skin was nearly all off. He was taken into Sackett & Haire's drug store and his injuries dressed and the pain in part relieved. It is difficult at present to tell the full extent of the injuries received, but it is safe to sa.y that his face will be badly scarred. SLAUGHTERING THE FISH.
