A sad affair occurred in Redbank township last Thursday. Mrs. Philip Benn, while going about her duties, got so near the fire that her clothes instantly blazed up and before help could be given her she was so badly burned that death soon followed. Mrs. Benn was a daughter of the late Jacob Brinker of Piney township.

On July 9th, the wife of Mr. Philip Benn, near Troy, was horribly burned to death. Mrs. Benn was blind, and during the absence of the rest of the family her dress caught fire by which means she was so terribly burned that life became extinct within eight hours. Her remains were buried at Churchville cemetery, on July 10. The deceased was aged 57 years, 2 months and 13 days. Rev. J. D. Hunsicker officiated.
