Explosion at Hope Valley.

Explosion at Hope Valley.

At Hope Valley, R. I., on April 13 an explosion in the engineroom of the Nicholas & Langworthy Machine company destroyed the plant and its machinery, together with 2 nearby dwellings, besides damaging some six dwellings in the main street. The flames and sparks were spread by a high wind, and as the village has not fire protection save a bucket brigade and placed its chief reliance on the mill pumps, which became useless, the loss mounted up to about $200,000.
