One of the saddest scenes that has
occurred in Troy for many years was
Saturday morning, when Hattle Louise
Snyder, seven years of age, daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. Louie Snyder, was
severely hurned by a bonfire that she
was standing near to get warm. The
child was burned entirely over the
body and ran to a neighbor's, Mrs.
Mattie Eubanks, who tried to extin
guish the flames by wrapping her In
a carpet, hut as this did not seem to
take effect immediately, she put her In
a tub of water and that was the only
way to save her just then. The poor
little thing had presence of mind all
the time and asked the children
around her to pray for her for she
was burned to death. The doctor
came Immediately and said It was the
worst case of Its kind he had ever
seen, and It made him so sick he could
not be of much assistance only to tell
the women what to do for her. She
was conscious all the time and talked
about" how It happened, but on 'Mon
day morning she passed away about
7:30 o'clock. Funeral services will be
held Wednesday afternoon from the
A. It E, Church, where she was an
active little Sunday BChool scholar.
