      BURNED TO DEATH

      Mrs. Silas Clark and Her Daughter the Victims.

      CREMATED IN THEIR HOME

      Fire in Carthage.

      A Terrible Casualty That Shocked the People of Mannsville Sunday Morning

      Mannsville, Oct. 3.-At 3 Sunday morning fire destroyed the residence of Mrs. Silas Clark, between here and Pierrepont Manor, and burned Mrs. Clark and her daughter, Lucinda. Mrs. Clark, aged about 90 years, had been an invalid for many years, living with her unmarried daughter, Lucinda, and a widowed daughter, Mrs. Stephen Bateman, about half a mile south of Pierrepont Manor.

      Just before 3 Sunday morning they discovered that the back part of the house was on fire. Mrs. Bateman ran to a neighbor (James Chaufty) for assistance who, with other near neighbors, hurried to the burning building, but too late to be of any assistance to those within, as the house was then a mass of flame.

      As soon as the fire burned down water was thrown on and the body of Mrs. Clark was taken from the ruins, badly burned. The body of her daughter was found soon after, nearly consumed. The remains were taken in charge by Undertaker B. P. Laniard, of Pierrepont Manor.

      The origin of the fire is unknown.

      This is the worst calamity that has come to our neighborhood in many years and the whole community is horror stricken. Both of the ladies who lost their lives were active members of the M.E. church here. Mrs. Clark was from in Pulaski. After her marriage she resided at Lorraine and later removed to the place where she died, having resided here about 25 years.

      Mrs. Clark was the mother of Mrs. Loren Fuller, of Philadelphia
