I EXPLOSIVES BY POST. At the General Post Office, Edinburgh, on Satur- day night, a small tin case containing a brass tube and detonator filled with some explosive mixture became ignited while lying with other packages in a hamper in the sorting department. The sorter dropped the hamper, whereupon the machine, which resembled a sardine tin, exploded, setting fire to its brown paper covering, but doing no damage to the other packages. The noise of the explosion re- sembled a pistol or rifle shot. The sorter took the burning parcel out of the hamper and stamped on it with his foot, extinguishing the fire and destroying the box. The police are endeavouring to find the sender.
