At about nine o'clock Saturday

ploded or turned over a;id set her
clothing and the bed ciothihg 0:1 lire.
Tin: members of tin family were in
another room and knew nothing of the
accident till th" screams of Mr. l oss
were heard. Virginia, her daughter,
was the lirst to reach th" i-com. and
as she entered tilt- door her mother
enveloped in llames sprang in her
arms screaming. "Save me." Tim
daughter was badly burned before any
oilier members of the family arrived.
Mrs. Cross was burned so badly that
medical aid could do her no good and

Tin- month of February is especial ly
lien in birthdays of eminent Ameri
cans, prominent aiiioiij whom are
Washington. Lincoln. Longfellow and
Lowell. The striking tiling about all
these is their sterling worth as men.
In celebrating' their birthdays this
y.-ar why not arouse new interest by
more attention to character and less
to the familiar facts of biography and
achievement:' The jrre.it thing is not
merely that Washington h-d the pa
