at North Pittsbur- and Apple re.-t.

a zas ex;-*osion Th'.rsday and thV
flanies which followed conmunicated
to adjoining structures.
Three youn; wenien clerks are
missing. two clerks and the assistant
.narager and a carpenter are in the
hospital dangerously burned and in
ju-ed. while a dozen or nore em

fron injuries. more or less serlous.
By noon the !la-nme w-,re under con
trol. nnd the property loss had been
plact : at $75.00.3.
It can not be determ!ned wbether
the list of missing will be increased
until the debris 'frem the collapsed
walls have been gone over. There
were customers In the store when the
explosion occurred. but the exact
number is not known, nor have their
names been learned.
The known missing are: Christo
bal Smith. Nellie Mitchell and Mary
Wagner. all clerks.
There were about twenty custom
ers !-n the store when the explosion
took place. The front wall was
thrown Intu the street and In falling
carried with it a large number of
electric wires. These were tangled
in a mass and prevented. for a time.
any thought of rescue for those Im
prisoned In the wrecked building.
The cause of the disaster lies in
the removal of a meter. it is stated.
and according to Manager Poff. work
men nezlected to make the proper
connections. Gas escaping from the
p!pes _4led the store and probably
the bank building. This was ignited

Four carpeo'ers were at work in the
rellar. Three escaped with slight
burns. Tho fourth probably will die.
Fire appeared to break out in all
arts of the building at the same time
nd with!n a few minutes other
wa!ls heran to fall.
The walls of adjoining builflings
began to go down, but a party of
rescrue-s had been orrar.zed. an:!.
ei!aring away the wIres, forced a
passage into the fire and ten cent

he stricken employees and custom
rs and as each was found he was
arried out. Aimbulances had b.een
sumoned and those of the injured
who could not be cared for by phy
socians on the ground were hurried
away to hospitals.
Uniontown responded to the call
for help an~d sent tire apparatus and
a large force of men. These aided
