      EXPLOSION OF A BOILER ON A TUG -- TWO MEN BADLY INJURED
      Buffalo, Nov. 23
      This morning about eight o'clock the report of an explosion was heard, and on proceeding to the foot of Lloyd Street, I found that the boiler of the tug S.A. CLARK had burst. The tug was literally torn to pieces, and although no on was killed, I regret to state that one man was severely injured and another was seriously cut about the head. From what I could learn there was too high a pressure of steam, and but little water in the boiler. The tug was literally torn to fragments, and the wreck immediately sunk.
