Burned To Death.

A little six year old negro girl, Della, daughter of Sam Ransom, was burned to death last Wednesday on the place of Mr. J. R. Henderson, near Stilesboro.

The girl was in the house by herself when she caught fire.  The first known of it was some hands on the place seeing her run out of the house.  Before they could get to her, her clothes were completely burned off and she was suffering great agony.  She lingered until 9 o’clock from when she was relieved by death of her sufferings.
