Annabell McMullen 15-year-old Nanty-Glo high school student who died from scarlet fever on Wednesday night of last week, is surviving by her parents Mr. and Mrs. Orlando McMullen, and the following sisters and brothers: Mrs. V. L. McDonald, Spangler; Gregory McMullen, Baltimore, Md.; Mrs. Charles Wurm, Nanty-Glo, and Morrell, Regis, Lloyd, Virginia, Donald, Rose, and James, all at home. On account of the contagious character of the disease private burial took place Thursday morning.


Fire discovered at 4 o'clock, Wednesday morning, badly damaged the home occupied by Frank Berg and family, formerly known as the Krumbine property and owned by B. F. Fresh. The blaze had a good start in the attic and roof before the fire fighters got a stream of water on it. The household goods were ruined by fire, smoke and water, and the house was damaged almost beyond repair. The family were away from home at the time, having gone to the home of relatives in Somerset county after dinner on Tuesday and the origin of the fire is unknown. Mr. Fresh carried $1,500 insurance, and the loss on the household goods was also partly covered by insurance.
