The news papers had reported the death of the wrong person by mistake.<>

His first response was shock. <>

Am I here or there? <>

When he regained his composure, his second thought was to find out what people had said about him.<>

The obituary read, “Dynamite King Dies.” <>

And also “He was the merchant of death.” <>

His name was Alfred Nobel and he is remembered today by the great Nobel Prize.<>
