One of the most shocking tragedies jin Northumberland county's history had been loaded with only two car-I occurred in Shamokin last night, 1 tridges, but she had fired with such when Lucy Doughton, a school girl, shot and killed William Klinger, of Locust Gap, and then shot and killed herself. William Klinger, aged 22 or 23 years, son of George Klinger of Locust Gap, was a hoisting engineer. Yesterday he had hoisted from the mines the father of the girl who a few hours later caused his death. He had been keeping company with Miss Doughton, aged 18 years, but about three months ago his visits to Shamokin ceased. Last night Klinger boarded a freight shortly before 7:00 o'clock, and went to Shamokin, and repaired immediately to the home of his former sweetheart, on Vine street, known as "Ho-gan's Alley." The young man did not enter the yard, but he and the girl stood for some time talking over the ' fence. Lucy's mother called to her to come in the house, and she answered "All right, mother." Then the mother reentered her home. The Shots A moment afterward the sharp report of two revolver shots rent the air, and a brother of the girl, arming himself with a shot gun, rushed out of the house to scertain the cause. Lying prostrate on the ground, the girl in the yard and the man outside of the fence, he was horrified to find the two bodies. Quickly summoning the family and a number of neighbors, a call was sent for surgeons, and an examination of the bodies was made. Klinger was found to be shot through the right temple, and the wound inflicted upon him had caused instant death. Girl Held Revolver The girl still held the revolver gripped in her dying hand. She had shot herself through the left temple, after firing the ball that killed the man. The BALLOTS FOR THE AND HER OWN LIFE weapon was a 32-calibre revolver. It j deadly accuracy that both went home. .The Cause No one heard the conversation between the two, and it is not known what word let the girl commit the awful act. A letter found in the pocket of young Klinger reveals the cause. The letter, which was unsigned, stated that this was the last time she would write to him. The writer said that she could no longer conceal her shame from her mother. She pleaded with the "man to come to see her. She said that she now hated him more than she had ever loved him, but she wanted a name for her baby. She concluded by saying that it was not necessary for her to sign her name, as he would know who it was from The letter was lengthy, but enough had been said to tell the story. A coroner's inquest will be held today. The body of the young man has been sent to his home in Locust Gap Tried to Warn Him It has been learned that a young man in Shamokin, a friend of Klinger's, had in some way discovered that Miss Doughton intended to shoot if he came to visit her, and for this purpose had secured possession of a revolver. The young man went to the Sha mokin station last night to meet Klinger, presuming that he intended to go down on the passenger train. In stead, he had gone there on an earlier freight train and the shooting was done while the friend waited at the depot. Lucy Doughton was an exceptional ly brilliant girl in her studies. She was a Sophomore in the Shamokin High School, and yesterday afternoon at- ended school as usual. , She led her class. She graduated at the head of the. class from the Grammar school, and ranked first at the end of the Junior year in High School. It was thought, however, that she was leading a wayward life. MINER KILLED SILK MILL FOR MOUNT CARMEL Another effort is now being made to have a silk mill located in Mount Carmel. It is up to local capitalists to raise $15,000 to make the venture a certainty. . H. A. Difenderfer, proprietor of a silk mill at Lehighton, Pa., spent yesterday and today in Mount Carmel interviewing local men of affairs and banking men in an effort to raise $15,000, in order to locate a branch mill here. Mr, Difenderfer wants Mount Carmel men to take bonds to the amount of $15,000, he to furnish $10,000, making $25,000 in all, the amount necessary to put the mill in practical working order. The bonds are to be 15 year, first mortgage on all his holdings, and will bear 6 per cent, interest payable semi-annually. He reserves the right to call in, after two years, all or any part of the issue. If successful in his endeavors he will begin immediately the erection of a $4,000 frame building, and .equip it with enough machinery to s keep about 100 men and women employed. The site of the mill, he claims, he has secured, and it is now only a matter of meeting with the necessary encouragement here to make it a sure venture. TOM J.
