Ingerick put about a pint of kero- sene on the fire and then walked out of the room. The stove lids were off and the oil blazed up and set the filler, fire. In an instant the room was a mass of flames and smoke. Mr. Gardner seized tbe blazing pail pf filler and threw it out the door, and with a ew pallfuls .of water extinguished :he flames before any damage was done, Mr. J. A. Culver was on the porch mixing paint and saw the blazing bucket shoot out the door directly toward Mr. Ingerick. He shouted and Mr- Ingerick dodged, but not quick enough, for the blazing mix- ture struck him on the right side and nstantly his clothing was all ablaze. Ingerick started to run towards the house and Mr. Culver, at the same time, rushed into the cottage and shouted for blankets. He seized one and Misses Elizabeth Gardner and Elizabeth Rlberolle also rushed out with bed clothes to Mr. Ingerick, More quickly 'than it takes to- tell it, Mr, -Culver and the young wom- en reached Mr. Ingerick and smoth- ered the flames, and it is a miracle that their clothes did not Catch on fire. The presence of mind, prompt action and bravery of_ these people saved Mr. Ingerlcfc from a horrible death.
