the river at Selinsgrove, rode their

thence up the valley to within 4
miles of Shamokin where the explos
ion was. Mr. Hann told them his
wife would have strangled if he had
not come to her and cleaned the
plastering from her face. Their
house stood only about 100 varda
from the mill and it is a miracle thnv
were not all killed. Their house was
a large new one, it was literally
crushed, even the lower floor was
torn full of holes. The fireman at
the mill said when he got there he
saw raoDiis running away as fast as
