invitation to attend a "Pic-Nic," to
come off about midway between this

of St. Mary's were present, and enjoyed
themselves in the very best manner.
The only thing to mar the pleasure of
the day, was a heavy shower of rain
about 3 o'clock, which seemed to cast a
gloom over the whole affair. We ex

Fatal Railroad Accident
A man apparently absut 50 yearofage
was killed at this place on Tucsda'y morn
ing last, by being run over by a down
freight train. The accident occured at
a point of tho road below ilia gas works,
and about one third of a mile from the
passenger depot, in the endcavoursof tho
deceased, unobserved by the attendants
of the train, to get on tho cabooso car,
He seized the railing of the caboose but
in his endeavors to gain a foothold fell
on the track, the car passing over his
body and right arm, "Not tho slightest
blame can be attached to those connec.
ted with the train, nor can all tho precau.
tion of a railroad company prevent acci.
dents resulting from the folly of persona
attempting to get on a train under speed.
The deceased, we learn, has been

pass the down Mail train at Montours
ville Station. While the Express train
was backing out the siding, the Mail

Terrible Boiler Explosion
Three men Killed. On Thuisday morn
ing last n engine boiler belonging to a

exploded with ternblo force, killing La

was literally blown to pieces, parts of his
body being found in over a dozen differ,

senting a horrible spectacle. Waters
was not carried quite so great a distance,

not severe. The force of the explosion
was tremendous ; pieces of tho boiler
weighing from 400 to 800 pounds being
thrown from twenty to thirty rods, and
nothiug remains on the site of the mill
except a mass of ruius. The killed, we
believe, were all residents of Spring
