A cordon of armed guards surrounded the works all nijht and guards are now about tho powdor yards, permitting no one to enter. Powder in kegs, cans and canisters which did not explode, but which were blown all about tho works, are being gathered up by the men and stored in the magazine still intact Crowds of people visited the scene from this city.

"It is amazing how easy and exciting it is to access all of this information! I found hundreds of articles about my relatives from Germany! Well worth the subscription!" - Michael S.
