To Save a Cemetery
Residents of Duryea fear the total destruction of Marcy cemetery by mine caves. A portion of the iron fencing surrounding the cemetery has been carried down.

The recent cave-ins occurred on the Foot street side of the cemetery, and there is fear felt for the safety of the entire grounds. It is believed the bodies will be carried into the mine.
