ANOTHER AWFUL DEATH.
to Little Girl Dies of Burns-Sister M(
Similar Death Two Years
ul Little Di*sy James, the three-yea
od daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jame
0. Lominick, of Caldwell township, mi
ie with a horrible death last week. Wit
at two other little children she was pla,
ie ing In a field, setting fire to som
of broom straw, when her clothing wa
id caught by the flames and she was bliE
x- tared from her hips to her feet. Tb
ie burning occurred at about 3 o'cloc
Friday afternoon and the little suffei
)n er lingered until about 8 o'clock th
a- next morning, when death came to he
r. relief. Everything possible to reliev
td the agony and save the life of th
m child was done by the faithful attend
R. ing physicians, Drs. P. G. Ellesor an
W. T. Dickert, but in vain. Her pai
a- was decreased, but her destiny wa
n. eternity. She was buried on Sunda
J. morning, the second Sunday of th
ts Advent season, at St. Phillips, the ser
vice being conducted by the Rev. N

n by burning in the family of Mr. Lom
ig Inick, whose little daughter, Maggi(
1- lost her life by burning two years ag
Ey to the day of the death of little Dais:

most bitter experience for a devote
mother and father. The sympathie
of the public are aroused by this har
rowing affliction that has been visitei
upon the sorrowing parents, whc
while they may. not now understani
d the darkness and gloom, might adop
in their "liturgy of grief" this beauti
