|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.
