    • Additional information received in Warsaw today on the Mabie
      tragedy in which Glayds Mabie, daughter of Eli Mabie, was
      burned to death early Thursday morning when the Mabie home,
      three miles southesat of North Webster, was struck by lighting,
      is to the effect that the brother Gerald was stunned by the
      bolt and was only aroused by his sister prior to being overcome
      by smoke. Gerald Mabie's condition is much improved today. He
      was able to be removed from the Crissy Home Hospital in
      Pierceton to the home of his aunt, Mrs. Edward Grieder, near
      North Webster, Thursday morning. Although he did not feel so
      well Thursday evening it is believed that his condition is
      rapidly improving. The two fled down the stairway to the lower
      floor. Gerald kicked open the stair-door with difficulty, and
      found himself confronted with dense smoke and flames. Believing
      that all chance of escape either at the front or rear door was
      cut off, Gerald kicked out a window at the foot of the
      stairway, and crawled outside the house to safety. Turning back
      to seize and rescue his sister, he found she had left. It is
      presumed that the girl, becoming panic-stricken, endeavored to
      escape through the kitchen of the home, and that she was
      quickly overcome on reaching the kitchen. The stairway led from
      the second floor to the pantry next to the kitchen. The father,
      Eli Mabie, and one son, Lavon, were sleeping on the lower floor
      in a room just off the living room. Gerald and Gladys were
      asleep in upstairs rooms. The lighting bolt struck the kitchen
      chimney, traveling downward through it and into the interior of
      the kitchen. In an instant the interior was in flames, which
      spread t all portions of the house. There were three rooms
      downstairs and two above. Mr. Mabie and his son Lavon fled out
      the front door in their nightclothes, shouting alarms to the
      two sleeping upstairs. The father and two sons reached the
      outside at about the same time. When they missed Gladys, Mr.
      Mabie and Newton Miller, a neighbor, who had reached the scene,
      climbed a ladder leading into Gladys' upstairs sleeping room,
      but they did not find her there. A few minutes later Mr. Mabie
      and Mr. Miller looked into the kitchen. There they saw the
      inert form of the girl, surrounded by flames which prevented
      any chance of rescue.
