|AN AWFUL ACCIDENT|
On the 7th instant, at the Freedom Iron and Steel Works, Lewistown, two workmen, named James A. Junkins and George Bearly, were killed under peculiarly distressing circumstances. The bottom support of a cupola containing about five tons of molten iron suddenly gave way, precipitating the seething mass upon the unfortunate men, and burning them so terribly that they both died soon after.
