Charles Hersey Meets an
VICTIM AN AGED MAN
Horrible Sight Greets
Intoxicated man Falls Asleep with
Lighted Pipe in His Mouth and
Sets Fire to the Structure
Burned to death whllo he slept In
the barn that served as his home, in
nn alloy between Oak and Prospect
streets, Just off tho Garden "City
Pike, was the fate of Charles Horsey,
aged 70 years, when tho structuro
burned to the ground Wednesday
night about nine o'clock. ,
Tho fire was not discovered unitl It
had gained considerable headway,
and although It was known to the
crowd that gatbored around" the scene
that a man was being slowly burned
to death Inside, the time had passed
for a rescue to bo effected. An alarm
was sent 'In to the Central depart
ments, but by the tlmo the depart
ment reached tho scone, the barn, a
tumble down affair, was a seething
mass ot dames.
Tho fire lit up tho heavens and at
tracted a great crowd to the scene.
As tho roof and sides of tho barn
fell, the boly of Horsey was soon In
the midst, being charred beyond rec
ognition In the roaring furnace.
Until a few days ago, Horsey had
been an Inmnto of tho county In
firmary. Ho left that Institution to
live with n colored man named Day
in tho old barn, which was on a prop,
erty owned by J. W. Clark. Tho
men had a few old blankets In the
place. A board spread over the
manger served as a table, and a few
broken dishes weio used nt mcnl
times. Together, the negro and tho
white, both old and Infirm, lived
the simple life.
Only yesterday tho son of the col
ored' man came, hero from Indiana,
apd took his father homo with him,
leaving Herso to llvo alone. He wn3
seen going to his abode early last
evening, badly intoxicated.
An Inveterate smoker, Hersey nl.
ways retired at night with his pipe In
his mouth, ana It Is supposed that
tho flro from tho plpo set the barn on
fire, whllo Its occupant reposed In a
drunken slumber. Ho was stretched
out on n board that b.id sorved as
his table, and beneath him were tho
unwashed dishes in which his meals
wero placed. It Is believed that ho
was suffocated boforo tho flro reached
ft'lio flro department put out tho
.flames, nnd the body was takon from
the midst of tha ashes and brought
to tho Hess morgue on South Main
.entirely burned off the body, nnd had
not been for 0110 or two articles
on tho man's uoily which worn not
burned It would lmvc been Imposslblo
to Identify him.
At ono time, a number of years
ago, Hersey bet his bod on flro in tho
samo manner, nnd his wife had a
vory narrow escape from belnp
