THREE YOUNG LADIES KILLED Instautljr While on Their Way Home Prom Clmrcli?Tiler* Had Ilrrii Bio Thoaght of Danger ? The Tragedy Stirred (he Village lo lis Depths-Th* Faiieral of the Three %rlll Occur at J?cobsbarg this Morning* The little village of Jacobsbnrg was appalled Sunday evening. l>y the killing of three young ladies by lightning and a fourth one prostrated by the shock. Those killed were: Mis* Kmma White, aged about twenty years, daughter of Simon W, White. Aliss Alpha Taylor, aged nbout nine teen years, daughter of William Taylor. Miss Minnie McGulre, aged about eighteen years, daughter of Rev. Thomas A. McGulrc. Miss Rosa liorum, aged about twelve years, waa badly shocked, but will recover. They had been nt the Jacobsburg M. K. church rehearsing the music for the children's service that was to take place nt flight, and shortly after 4 o'clock started for home. The three young ladles who were killed. together with the little girl prostrated, had Just left the church, and the four were walking abreast under two umbrellas. In front and behind thern wore others who had been at the church and there was not a thought of danger for all thoughts were centered upon the services they had been rehearsing! Suddenly the lightning flashed and the four girls fell to the ground. Others near them were blinded and stunned for a moment. It was an awful moment. The death-like silence that prevailed was appalling. Not nn outcry had been made. The three young ladles had been killed Instantly. The fourth was senseless and almost motionless, but life was not extinct. The scene that followed cannot be described. Those gathered about the prostrate forms could not believe they were dead, and they tenderly carried mom to A flPJ^nuuriiik iiuuiv. The arrival of physicians settled nil doubt. The little girl who was yet living was burned on the arm, the course of the lightning flash being plainly stamped upon her arm, reaching from the shoulder to the elbow. She Is still prostrated from the shock. The dead Klrls were removed to their homes and arrangements made for the funerals, which will take place at the church there, this morning at 11 o'clock, ono service for the three. Miss McGulre was the only child of Rev. Thomas McGulre. who preaches In ihe circuit In that neighborhood. All of the dead ones seem to have been favorites in that vicinity and leaders in the work of the church. The midden taking off aroused the entire neighborhood and for many miles around they gathered In the little town to learn the particulars and to extend sympathy to the bereaved families, the members of which aro prostrated over such a sad ending.

Miss Oaither seemed In better spirits than usual on Sunday evening, chattlnn pleoaanUK with thost about h<r while mllkin.T the cows In the evening. But somo tlm^ ago she hnd said to Mrs. Neff that If she didn't have better health she would kill hevs?if. The remark was passed without serious thought, but she wan troubled with a nervous affection and seems to have prepared for the worst, for when she was found dead In her bed, a bullet hole In the right temple and a reVolver In the bed told the story. Ourofier Reeno Furbay was notified, and went out yesterday afternoon to Investigate. lie rendered a verdict In accordance with the facts. HIGH FRAI8S for !!? Kmkntirr l*lauo, by the F. W. nanmtrio.
