MUTILATED BY AN EXPLOSION.

AUCKLAND, October 16. Yesterday a fearful accident occurred at Owharoa, an elderly man, being the victim of a dynamite explosion. With three others he was quarrying road metal. - A hole had been drilled in an open face of stone and charged with dynamite and the fuse was fired. Thinking it had not lighted properly, M'Leay went back to rekindle it, whin the shot went off full in his face. The other men ran up and found their comrade in a pool of blood. A matchbox which he had held in his hand was driven into his face. His left hand was completely shattered, the face fearfully mutilated, the lower jaw smashed, and the sight of both eyes destroyed.
