Harvey Lad Experiments with Disastrous Results to Himself.

Harvey, N. D., Nov. 15.—Attempting to explode a railroad dynamite torpedo nearly cost James Sprague, the 4-year-old son of John Sprague of this city, his life. The lad gave the torpedo a blow with a hammer, and in the explosion which resulted he received several bad wounds, the tin being driven into his flesh. Unless infection sets in he will recover.
