Arlola < arorn. the 6

Gee > C 'arniu , riving two miles north
of town , was burned to death in
the flames which consumed their
barn Monday about 11 o'clock a.
in. The little girl and James , a
brother , 9 or 10 years old , were
playing in the barn when the girl
struck a match and dropped it
down into the manger from the
hay mow. Jaraes va. down below
anl ; f-a\v the ma'.oh fall. H tried
to the fire but did '
put out not sue-
ceed and ran to the In.ns i'or help. \
Mr. Camui and his two older chil
dren ran to the barn but found the
flames too hot to go through.
Miss Hazel ran back into the barn
three times but was driven back
by the flames. She heard her sis
ter scream and made a heroic ef
fort to reach her but the flames
drove her back. She then tried
to untie the horses but had to give
way to the rush of the flames
which filled the barn and burned
her eyebrows and hair from the
front and side of her head.
The barn was soon burned to
the ground arid left the charred
remains of the little girl , apparent
ly crouched in the hay next to
the wall at the north end of the
barn. Beside her lay the' charred
j remains of 1W little dog that stay-
| e * I with her and was found close
beside her nestled together.
j The big fine black team lay on
j their right sides just a > they had
! stood in the bini : with tlieir heads
to the south , and roasted black.
A little calf in the south end of
the barn was burned to a crisp. -
Several sets of harness and oth
er articles were burned.
| The child was dug out of the
1 cinders and a mass of half burned
hay , burned beyond recognition ,
almost , and the funeral was held
at the house during the afternoon ,
conducted by Rev. Beale. A
number of neighbors quickly
gathered after the fire and lent
what assistance was possible. The
body was laid to rest in Mt. Hope
cemetery southeast of town.
Mr. Camrn had some insurance
on the stable and horses. It was
only a few years ago that Mr.
Camra lost a little girl , being run
over by a wagon.
