Fall Into Fire, and So Terribly
Burned That It Passes Away
A distressing accident occurred at
ae homo of Ira Parker Monday
afternoon which resulted In the death
of a little 3-year-old child'. Mr.
Farker lives on the road between
Avoca and Nehawka. It seems that
a bonfire had been started to burn
ftome trash, and the same had almost
died out, when the child made its
pparanc and was playing around
the dying embers.
In some manner the child's cloth
ing caught fire and when discovered
by the mother the child ran away and
the mother was unable to catch it at
I ret, but finally did so and tore the
burning clothing from its little body
m soon as possible, but not until the
elothing had almost burned off. The
hild had fallen on the live coals, face
forward, and Its little hands and
rras were burned almost to a crisp.
As soon as possible Dr. Brendel of
Avoca was called and done all in his
ewer to relieve the little one's suf
fering, but the burns were so severe
"that the child died Tuesday morning.
The mother's hands were badly burn
ed in an effort to tear the burning
lothing from the little ore. It is
very sad affair and cast a gloom
ever the entire neighborhood. The
arents have the sympathy of the en
tire community in this, the hour of
heir sad bereavement.
The funeral occurred Wednesday
ternoon and the little darling was
aid at rest In the Avoca cemetery in

eighbors and sympathetic friends.
