Burned to death.

A little child of Mr. John Hulburn was burned to death one day last week. The little one was only three years old, and at the time of the horrible accident was sitting before the fire with several other children. All at once its clothes flamed up, and Mrs. Hilburn, who was sitting in the room, ran to the child and tore its clothes off, but not until the fatal effect of the fire left its mark on the child, which lingered several hours and died. Mrs. Hilburn was badly burned about the hands and arms in her effort to save the little one.
