Nine Foreigners Blown to Atoms

Roanoke, Va., Special.—A Richmond special to The Times says nine men, all foreigners, were blown into eternity by a dynamite explosion Saturday on the Tidewater Railroad near Pearisburg, Va. The laborers were at dinner and a quantity of the explosive which was being thawed in front of a fire blew up. The bodies were badly mangled and were hurled quite a distance.
