A Narrow Escape

A NARROW ESCAPE. — Yesterday as Arthur Gore and a couple of friends were duck hunting near the foot of Belle Isle, a shot gun lying between Mr. Gore’s knees accidentally exploded. Fortunately no one was injured, and the only damage done was the tearing away of a portion of the gunwale of the boat.
