CHILD BURNS TO DEATH.
Frank Glenn, the three-year- old sc-n
of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Glenn, living
at Seventh and Olive streets, was
burned to death in a fire which de
stroyed a barn on their place last Fri
How the fire started will prehaps
never be definitely known, but it is
believed that the child was in the hay
mow and playing with matches, which
ignited the hay, and he was unable
to get out of the place, probably being
suffocated by the smoke.
When the alarm was sounded the
department responded immediately,
as the dense smoke made it unneces
sary to ask where the fire was. Even
before their arrival, the building was
almost completely destroyed, there
being nothing but a portion of the
frame work standing. The white
flesh of the little fellow was seen by
several of the firemen, who did not
at first realize what it was, until
finally Ed. Branlgan noticed the form
of the little legs dangling out over a
pile of burning rubbish, and ex
claimed, "My God, boys, that is a
baby." The shock was almost too
much for him, and he went to the
house to break the awful news to
the mother, who supirased that her
child was safe with bis playmates.
It seems that Frank, in company
with some older children had been in
the habit of playing "show" with a
little magic lantern in the loft of the
bam. The child probably tried to
light the lantern while alone on that
