A Sav DEatH - A SoLEMN BURIAL.
—Born March 15th, 1866, John Gar-
brick Jr., third child of Amos and
Elizabeth Garbrick, died at his home,
at Coleville, Sunday morning, July
21st, and was buried in the Union
cemetery, in this place, cn Tuesday af-
terncon. He was one of the many resi-
dents of that village to fall a victim to
the - epedemic of typhoid fever and his
illness began more than four weeks ago,
shortly after he had drunk deep of the
water of that fatal spring near the rail-
road. To it every case of fever in the
village has been traced, but it was only
by chance that the young man drank of
it. He had been working in that
vicinity and went there to quench his
thirst, because it was handiest.
Typhoid developed rapidly and he
took his bed within a few days. Care-
ful nursing coupled with a rugged con-
stitution carried Lim through the at-
tack so that he was out about the 4th of
July. Imagining himself stronger
than he was he went to work to look
after his 1ce business and indulged other
indiscretions that caused a relapse. He
tried to fight against the recurring
ravage of the disease but fell a helpless
victim on the 10th. From the very
start of his second attack it seemed as if
he could not recover. Though the
most skillful physicians were in con-
stant attendance he sank rapidly until
death, in its cold embrace, carried away
a promising life.
John Garbrick Jr. was a most ex-
emplary young man. Steady, sober
and industrious he at all times com-
manded the respect of a large circle of
friends, merited the love of fond parents
and cherished the devotion of a young
wife. He had just entered a partner-
ship with his father in the ice business
and promised a manhood which would
have had a mighty influence for good
in that community. His widow was a
Miss Sprankle, before her marriage,
and is left with a little boy and girl to
mourn this sad death.
Funeral services were held at the
house, which adjoins his father’s, on
Tuesday afternoon, Bellefonte ecom-
mandery and castle K. G. E. having
been in charge. Rev. Hoshour, of the
Lutheran church, made the address in
which he spoke of the rare character
and recent conversion of the young
man. Revs. Rue and Young of the
Methodist church assisted. The Eagles,
with whom he had been a treasured as-
sociate for five years, then formed in line
at present arms as a detachment of the
Castle bore the remains to the hearse.
The solemnity of the scene, as the band
played “Nearer My God, to Thee,” can
better be imagined than described. The
funeral cortege was immediately formed.
The Bellefonte band leading the Com-
mandery in full regalia, then the Castle

side of the hearse behind which moved

It was indeed an impressive spectacle
sod none could help realize the grief
thus manifested over a life that had
been cherished tor its true wort.
A WELL KNowN MaN KILLED BY
LIGHTNING AT MADISONBURG.—Fatal-
ities from lightning seem to be of increas-
ing frequency in this county. Oa Sun-
day evening John B. Sheffer, of Madi-
sonburg, was struck and instantly kill-
ed by an electric bolt that fell on him
from a tree under which he had taken
shelter from a rain storm.
Mr. Sheffer had gone out a short dis-
tance from his home to Jook for his cow
and when he had gotten some distance
from any buildings a storm broke in all
its fury. At the time he was going along
Fiedler’s lane and climbed over
a fence to take shelter un-
der an apple tree thatstood in the
field near by. He had been under
the tree only a few minutes when.it was
struck by lightning. The electric cur-
rent followed the trunk of the tree down
to a place where it took a decided bend
then dropped off and fell on old Mr.
Sheffer. Mr. Simon Hasel, who lives
within sight of the place where the ac-
cident occurred, saw the man go under
the tree and then was horrified to see the
lightning strikeit soon after. Immedi-
ately be ran to the spot and found
Mr. Shaffer's lifaless body.
Deceased was 67 years old and a con-
sistent member of the Reformed church.
No one was held in higher etteem by
those who knew him in all parts of the
county than Mr. Shaeffer. Politically
he was an earnest, aggressive Democrat
and the party loses one of its oldest and
best workers in the “lower end’’ through
his death. He has lived in Madisonburg
ever since his retirement from the mer-
cantile business a number of years ago.
An aged widow survives to mourn the
loss of a devoted husband.
William Shaeffer, of Zion, is a brother
of the decedent.
The death of Harry M. Spangler,
aged 16 years, occurred at the home of
Mrs. Lucinda Spangler, his grandmoth-
er at Eagleville, last Thursday morning.
The boy had been ill about five weeks
with lung trouble. His funeral occur-
“been made in the Liberty cometery.
MET DEATH IN A PECULIAR WAY. — |
"About ten days ago Lew Watson, a ve-
| teran of the late war whose home was in
! Unionville, drove out into the “Ridges,”
! back of DMilesburg, with undertaker
Confer. They were returning home in
toe evening and had reached Wallace
run, at Snow Shoe Intersection ; there
they drove into the creek to water the
horse. When it had finished drinking
Mr. Watson climbed out on the shafts
to rein up. He was just about ready to
get back into the buggy when he slip-
ped and fell down between the shafts.
The horse started before Mr. Confer,who
had remained in the buggy, could stop
lit and either tramped the prostrate man
or pulled the vehicle over his stomach.
Itis not known positively in which
way he was injured.
Mr. Confer got him into the buggy
and drove him on home where he be-
came sick and died Monday evening,
just one week after he was injured.
Deceased was about 55 years old and
leaves a widow and several grown up
children. His funeral occurred Wed-
nesday afternoon, interment having been
made at ‘‘hickory shingle” grave yard.

becca Steele, and a grand-daughter of
John Dunlop, the founder of Bellefonte.

nace. After his death, in 1868, she
brought her family back to Bellefonte

Lost BorE LEGS AND His LIFE AT
MILESBURG YESTERDAY. — Dennis
Byrne the oldest son of F. E Byrne,
well known Williamsport mérchant
tailor, had both legs cut off at Miles-
burg yesterday, about noon, by being
thrown under freight train 56 on its
way to this place. The particulars of
the accident are about as follows. :
". Young Byrne, who was nearly 18,
was a tailor by trade, but was of a rov-
ing disposition and frequently started
off on long tramps. He had been gone
from his home for five weeks and is sup.
posed to bave been om his way back.
He and a fellow named Best, who broke
jail in Williamsport on July 4th, ar-
rived at Milesburg yesterday about din-
ner time. It is not known whether
they came in from Tyrone on train 56
or not, but were seen lying under some
trees near the station about the time it
arrived there. :
As is customary the train stopped a
short distance west of the station to cut
off the through cars before proceeding to
this place and when the two men no-
ticed it heading for the branch they got
up as if to board it. They were
on the side of the track farthest
from the station and some one
called to them if they wanted
to get on they had better cross over
to the platform, as it was higher. Not
heeding the advice the men waited for
the approaching train. It was running
at about ten miles an hour when it
passed the station and Best did not try
to make it. Byrne made the attempt,
however. He grabbed the third car
from the caboose, but was too low to
swing onto the step and the momentum
of the train threw him right under it
unto the track ; three cars and the ca-
boose passing over his legs.
Immediately the train was stopped
and Alois Kohlbecker and several men
ran to pick him up. Best started to run
when he saw the accident, but Mr.
Kohlbecker called him to come back
and tell who his injured companion was:
A stretcher was procured in the station
snd the boy was put into a car
and brought here.
Meanwhile a telephone message sum-
moned Dr. Seibert to the station to
await the arrival of the train. When
it got here he was taken off and carried
into the baggage room where an ex
amination revealed that the right leg
had been cut off just below the thigh
and the left one below the knee. The
exhausted condition of the patient made
immediate amputation impracticable, so
be was carried to the Bush House where
he died at half past three.
The body was given in charge of un-
dertaker Harris who had it ready for
burial by the time Mr. Bryne, the boy’s
father, arrived at 5:15 to take his son's
remains home. He returned with the
body last night. -
The young man was conscious up to
the time of his death ; he expressed great
sorrow for his course and his first words,
when picked up, were: “My God, my
legs are gone.” He began to say the
Lord’s prayer when be was put into the
car to be brought to this place.
Best skipped out when the train
reached here and was not seen after-
wards, though the police went to hunt
