The explosion occurred in the shell
room, in whiehT." men were working.
There was no warning and no chance
to escape. The terrilic report, which
could be heard Tor miles, conveyed to
the men in the other parts
of the yards the lirst news
that an accident had taken place.
The sound caused all eyes to be turned
to the hhell works. '1 he building was
shattered and pieces of iron were
hurled upward and outward in all di
rections. Intintly 11a mes broko out

started. Men from the yards at once
rushed to the S;-cnc, hopeful of hnding
their comoanions still alive. The
mangled corpses told tho tale of the
awful catastrophe, A groan under a
pile of debris, however, showed there
was still life. In the beat of the flames
the brave rescuers carried out the
three men who had not been instantly
killed. Two were so horribly mancled
that they died in a very short time.
The third was taken to tho hospital.
Tho 12 bodies, or the pieces of them,

KILLED AT PRAYER.
Lightning Strikes Two Churches Killing
Fifteen W01 hhlpers.
Madkid, dune 14. Terrific thunder
storms prevailed in various parts of
pain yesterday and heavy loss of life
and injury by lightning is reported.
The electricity appeared to pick out
the churches as the objects on which to
show its power, and, unfortunately, it
did so while the services were in pro
gress. At Melias. in the province of
Orense, the parish church was crowded
with worshipers attending mass when
the storm burst. Though the peals of
thunder were very load and the Hashes
of lightning extremely vivid, not
much attention was paid to the storm
at first. Suddenly a Hash of lightning,
blinding in its intensity, accompanied
by a terrific crash of thunder, caused
tho worshipers to spring to their feet
Tho utmost confusion crevailed.
Finally, when order was restored, the
congregation wero horrified to find
that 10 of their number had been
struck by tho lightning and instantly
killed, and that -8 others had been
seriously injured. When this became
generally known the people were panic
stricken and rushed from the church
into the pelting storm.
An almost similar scene occurred at
Mucientes, in the province of Valla
dolid. The church in that village was
also struck by lightning. Five of the
worshipers wero killed and 10 injured.
At Ilurgos, capitol of the province
of that name, considerable damage
was done to tne famous old cathedral
by the lightning. ThellurgosCathcQral
