Local News
--OSCEOLA—May 23, 1890—Yesterday just before noon the boiler of a portable sawmill that had been put up in the field near the residence of William Wildrick, on the Woodhull road about five miles from this place exploded with fatal effects.  The fireman, one P. Stricker, of Woodhull, N. Y., was so severely hurt that he died in a short time, and Barney Gee, son of Miles Gee, who has till very lately lived in Holden Brook in this borough, was severely injured—so much so that it is thought he cannot live out the day.  Some of his ribs were broken and driven into his lungs.  A son of William Wildrick was quite severely hurt, but was better at last accounts and it is thought he will recover.  Several others were more or less injured whose names I have not ascertained at this writing.  I understand the mill had lately been purchased by Hoyt Tubbs, of Woodhull, and Philip Tubbs, of Elkland.  As to the cause of the explosion, there are several reasons given.  One is that the boiler was worthless, another and the more reasonable one is that the water was allowed to get too low in the boiler.
