--On Sunday afternoon an accident occurred at the granite quarry at the west end of Lexington street, just outside the city limits, by which the proprietor, Mr. J. Atkinson
, was seriously injured, and narrowly escaped death.
He had prepared a blast and applied the fuse, which caused an explosion before he could get out of the way. He was struck by a large piece of rock, which badly broke one of his logs.
He was removed to his residence, near by where he received proper surgical attention.--Balt. Sun, 5th.
