——1It is rumored that Bellefonte
councils intend increasing the tax mill-
age for the ensuing year. Under a rate
of borcugh 2, street 3, interest 6 and a
net water duplicate amounting to $4,-
300, the borough has received only $17,-
433.71 while the expenditures amounted
to $17,633.06. Of course thisis not
making both ends meet, but if council
wants to kill the town altogether then
it had better increase the taxes. Belle-
fonte is burdened now so heavily that
her citizens can scarcely live and if ad-
ditional taxes are heaped on there is no
telling what the end may be. Has
council not thought of retrenching a
little in the borough expenses. Surely
that would be better than making the
tax burden heavier, especially when the
business outlook is no brighter.
——The marriage of Miss Laura Hale
Wright eldest daughter of the Rev. and
Mrs. W. O. Wright, to Mr. Thomas

friends of the couple. The bride who
is an exceptionally bright and pleasant
girl and who has taught in the High
school in this place for four cr five
years, wore her traveling gown of blue
cravenette and moire. There were no
attendaats and promptly at eight o’clock
the Rev. Dr. Laurie, assisted by the
bride’s father, performed the ceremony,
after which a delicious wedding break-
fast was served. The wedded couple
started on the 10.44 train for Philadel-
phia where the groom is in business
and where he had a house furnished just
ready to go into.

THREE CHILDREN STRUCK BY LIGHT-
NING.—During the severe electrical
storm that passed over this place Mon-
day afternoon three little boys, who
had been swimming in Spring creek,
near Roopsburg, sought shelter under a
tall pine tree in the woods just south of
Bush’s addition. After the swim they
had been gathering wild straw-berries
and when the storm came up it was too
late to reach home so they ran in under
the trees. .
They were Charley Hunter, aged 13
years, u son of Mr. Steele Hunter the
builder, and Winfield and Eddie Lose,
aged 12 and 9 years, sons of Scott Lose,
a tailor in the employ of Montgomery
& Co. They had not been under
the tree long when Eddie Lose began
crying and wanted to go on home, but
at that instanta blinding flash of light-
ning struck the tree and the three lit-
tle fellows fell lifeless to the ground.
Noone knows how long they laid
there, but Win. Lose regained con-
sciousness first and not knowing what
had been the matter, he was dazed and
started to run home, but his legs refus-
ed to bear him and he fell helpless.
Presently his strength began to rally
and on looking about he saw the other
two boys lying apparently so and as he
thought dead. He tried to arouse
them, then never thinking of putting out
the fire that was burning their clothing
and their bodies, he started to crawl to
the nearest house, the home of Mr.
Charles Schroyer, nearly three-quarters
ot a mile distant. On his hands and
knees, rolling part of the way, the little
fellow succeeded in reaching the house,
his companions. He was washed, given
dry clothing and his burns dressed,
then he came to and told of his brother
and little Hunter. Jared Hasel and
some other men immediately set out in
search of the other two boys who were
found in great agony near the tree
where they had fallen. They were
picked up and carried to the house,
where after they had regained con-
sciousness their wounds were dressed
and they were brought home to this
The children were all very slow to
recover, so the shock must have been
quite severe. Eddie Lose was burned
worse than the others. His head, fore-
head, left shoulder and arm were badly
burned, the current seemed to have cross-
ed over his body and burned its way
down to the calf of his right leg, where
it burned to the bone. Little Hunter
and the other Lose boy were both burn-
ed too, but not nearly so seriously as the
Eddie. They all mended right rapidly
but Eddie Lose, who was burned so
bad that be could not take any nourish-
It seems strange but nota mark can
be seen where the lightning might

During the same storm Wardner Wil-
lard, a Daily News carrier, was stunned
while running papers on High street.
He recovered soon. And the house oc-
cupied by a Mr. Michaels, on Ridge
street, was struck, the lightning burn-
ing a hold in the roof.
At an early hour Wednesday morn-
ing Eddie Lose died from his injuries.
was unable to recover and death came to
end his agony. He was buried yester-
day afternoon. Itis feared now that

A FaranL BoiLer ExprrLosioN.—A
twenty-five horse power boiler blew up
at Bilger Bro’s. saw mill on the side of
ant Gap, about half past ten o’cloek
‘Monday morning and on Wednesday
the remains of Nelson Bilger were
buried, he having been a victim of the
frightful explosion. ~The particulars
are about as follows :
The scene of the explosion is just west
Centre Hall and not more than a half
mile from Pleasant Gap. There the Bilger
brothers have been working a lumber
job for some time and to run the mill a
twenty-five horse power boiler, that wal
considered old and really unsafe when
Monday morning operations were be-
gun as usual and work carried on until
about 10 o’clock, when the saws were
stopped because the steam had gone
down. When the gauge showed a
pressure sufficient to start up again
Nelson E. Bilger, the engineer, started
to the engine to open the valve, when a
terrific explosion occurred and he was
blown clear through a board wall and
imbedded, waist deep, ina mud hole
fifty feet away. Herbert Bilger,a nephew
of Nelson, working near by, was
knocked over by the shock, and was
thigh to the head.
Nelson must have been killed in-
stantly for his neck and back were brok-
en, his left leg almost torn from the
body and broken in four places, he was
in a horrible manner. Bert. is supposed
to have éscaped being uninjured by the
flying fragments of the boiler by falling
where he fainted before he could tell of.
He had been so badly burned that he

partially disembowled and was mangled |
at the first shock and the iron missiles
passing right over him.
The boiler separated right in the
middle, one end of it flying a distance
of 300 ft. in one ‘direction, while the
other flew 200 ft. in an opposite direc-
tion. No cause can be assigned for the
accident as the boiler is known to have
contained plenty of water and the gen-
eral supposition is that the plates had
worn so thin by constant usa that they
refused to longer withstand the high
steam pressures it was forced to carry.
. Nelson E. Bilger was 23 years of age
and a brother of John Bilger, the
veterinarian, He was unmarried and a
man of many good principles. His
funeral was held on Wednesday morn-
ing from the Lutheran church at
Pleasant Gap. It was the largest ever
seen in that community.
Herbert Bilger, who so narrowly es-
caped death and is now recovering trom
his scalds, is a son of John Bilger and is
21 years of age.
The mill is almost a total wreck and
the fortunate departure of the hands for
the mountains, just a few minutes be-
fore the explosion, possibly saves the

PARKER-SCHOFIELD. — June brides
are many in this community, but none
of them are happier or were wedded un-
der more auspicious circumstances than
those surrounding the ceremony that
united Mary Charlotte Schofield and
George Ross Parker, both of this place,
last Tuesday morning at nine o’clock.
The wedding was celebrated at the
home of the bride, 23 south Thomas
street, Rev. Dr. Laune, officiating.
Only a few friends were present to
witness the ceremony. To the strains
of Mendelsohn’s wedding march, played
by Miss Lizzie Schofield, a sister of the
bride, the party entered the parlor.
First came Nan Schofield a sister of the
bride as flower girl, then Ferdinand and
Emily Parker, brother and sister of the
groom, and finally Mr. Parker with his
intended bride. On reaching an im-
mense bank of flowers at the end of the
perlor the party turned and stood facing
the minister, who made them man and
wife by the simple, though impressive
ceremony of the Presbyterian church.
After the congratulations an elaborate
wedding breakfast was served in the
dining room and then the bride and
groom departed for a two week’s tour in
Somerset county,the home of the groom.
George Ross Parker is a passenger
conductor on the Bellefonte Central
railroad and one of the most popular
young men in town. He came here
with the Collins men when they were
building the Buffalo Run road and has
remained ever since. He is a young man
who enjoys the respect of all who know
him and has the hearty congratulations
of a multitude of friends.
The brideis the oldest daughter of
Hon. James Schofield present Assembly-
man from this county, and is a young
woman of exceptional accomplishments.
She is a graduate of the Bellefonte High
school, is a talented musician and best
of all knows well the domestic duties
that will devolve upon her.
The couple had inteded going to
housekeeping here, but a change in the
running of Mr. Parker’s train will
necessitate their living at State College.
