GASOLINE BLAZE
CAUSES DEATH
WOMAN IS FATALLY BURNED
IN EXPLOSION
Mrs. Sarah Hearn Attempts to Fill
Lighted Stove and Flames En.
velop Her Body— Dies
at Hospital
. '.Vhlle attempting to nil the tank of
a lighted gasoline stove at her home at
Hurl;.' station yesterday morning Mrs.
Harah Hearn was fntnlly burned and
died at the Oood Bamarltan hospital at
2.30 o'clock In the ( afternoon.
Mrs. Hearn hud anticipated spending
the day with her husband, William
Hearn, a carpenter In one of the city
parks, and was preparing a lunch for
the occasion. The gasoline in the stove
ran low und Mrs. Hearn attempted to
fill the tank while two of the burners
were Ignited. In some manner her hand
was slightly burned uud the 'shock
caused her to drop the jar holding the
gasoline on the stove. The contemn
ran out and In an. instant became ig
nited. The blazing gasoline covered her
dress, and screaming she ran out the
donr into the open air.
. She tried to reach her husband, who
wag at work less than half a block
away, but before she had taken more
than a few steps her clothes were a
mass of flames. Neighbors saw her
plight and ran to her assistance. They
rolled her on the ground in frantic
efforts to smother the flames, but
the flames were not extinguished until
all her clothes had been burned to a
crisp and her body horribly burned.
An ambulance was hastily summoned
and she was taken to the Good Samar
itan hospital, but physicians had no
hope of saving her life, and at 2:30
o'clock her death occurred.
The body was taken to Pierces under
taking establishment, where the coroner
will hold an inquest today.
Mrs. Hearn was 34 years old and was
highly esteemed among her neighbors
and friends. She had no children, and
besides her husband no members of her
immediate family.

ASKS SUPPORT
OF THE PUBLIC
PURCHASERS TO AID EARLY
CLOSING
C. H. Parent Gets Signatures of Citi
zens Who Favor Half Holi.
days and Better Hours
for Workers
C. H. Parent Is endeavoring to secure
the moral support of the purchasing
public for a .movement in the interest
of a Saturday half holiday for the em
ployes of the various mercantile estab
lishments. Merchants also will be asked
to close their stores at 6 p. m. every day
In the week for the remainder of the
year.
Mr. Parent Is circulating a petition
with this end In view and already has
secured a large number of signatures.
He asks that every person in Los An
geles, man und woman, who la willing
to ussltit In this movement send in tils
name und address, or cut out a copy
of the attached pledge and secure as
many signatures to It as possible.
Following is a letter addressed to the
public:
To all humane people of Los Angeles:
The following pledge, signed by over
two hundred well known and influen
tial citizens nf Loh Angeles, explains
Itself.
The writer circulated this pledge with
the sole motive and desire of assisting
the noble women and public spirited
men who have labored long and earnest
ly to organize this movement. I was
much gratified to secure the enthusias
tic indorsement of over nlnety-slx per
cent of the people solicited. I regret,
however, to say that there are still
some merchants who decline to join the
movement, and it is the intention of
this petition to secure the moral bup
port of the purchasing public with the
hope that we may be able to make the
moveYnent universal, but In this work
we need your help and sympathy,
I therefore appeal to every good man
and good woman in Los Angeles who
believes In our work to send In their
names and addresses at onco, so that
they may be attached to the pledge.
Not only your own name but cut out
a copy of the pledge from this paper
with the signatures attnched and se
cure as many signatures as possible
among your friends.
If you believe* In the- movement show
your faith by helping it to your ut
most.
In an enlightened city like Los An
geles a humane movement such as this
should have fifty thousand supporters.
Will you help secure them?
Send all communications to C. H.
Parent, 414 Bradbury building, Los An
geles, Cal.
The Petition
"To whom It may concern: We aro
informed that there is a movement on
foot among the merchants of Los An
geles to give their employes a Saturday
half holiday during the summer months
from July 1 to September 15, and to
close their stores at 6 p. in. every day
In the week during the balance of the
year.
"We, the undersigned, having no pe
cuniary interest In this matter, but
sincerely believing that it will be for
the best Interests and mutual benefit
•if the employers as well as tin: em
ployes.'do hereby express our most
earnest and cordial approval of this
wise and humane movement, and pledge
it our hearty co-operation and support,
and will further use our best Influence
to make it popular and universal.
