Concluded on the last Page Alfred Gamble a will known resident of Winthrop. Was seriously if not fatal i injured Yesti Day morning in a fire which destroyed the cottage where he Livoto. Together with All of its contents. Malcolm Samlue his three year old grandson was also painfully burned his Grandfather carried him out thru a room that was tilled with flame inhaling the flank s so badly that his death resulted last night. The fire originate from a kerosene explosion. Or. Gamble arose from his bed about six o clock and after Only a partially dressing started to make a fire in a Large Wood stove used to heat the living room. He seized the Coal Oil can and poured a Quantity of the Oil into the stove we Quot a an sex Fosion resulted instantly. The flames burst out into the room igniting or. Cramble s clothing. The carpet and other things in the room. He ran into the open air and rolling on the ground and beating the flames madly with his hands succeeded in putting out the fire on his person. Guy Mckinzie and wife and or. Gamble s two daughters were in the House at the time and fled from the flames into the Yard the Mckinzie jumping from an upstairs window. They declare that the explosion filled the whole House with flame the burning vapor even penetrating up stairs. the time the flames in Alf s clothing were extinguish someone recalled that the baby a boy of three years was asleep in a downstairs bed room. Mckinzie ran to the window and found that the door Between the living room and bed room was still closed and the flames had not penetrated into the room. Smashing the window he was climbing into the room when or. Gamble. Who had Rusht thru the flames that filled the living room burst thru the door snatch the child from the bed and plunged Back into the flames ignoring Guy s Appeal to hand him out thru the window. He succeeded in reaching the Yard again but w Lien he lid both were wrap t in flame and tile time those about them had succeeded in smothering and beating out the tire both were frightfully burned. I i is. Holley and Beckett were called from this City and hurried to the scene in the former s greyhound car. Making i part of the trip at fifty Miles an hour. I they fou Iid Lith the Man and child suf Fering intense pain and in a serious condition or. A Amble had on or in his socks underwear and overalls and these prov ii list Little protect n from the terrible heat. The Man s socks were Burnt Oti acid he skin on his feet and i shins blistered and roasted. His i hips and Bai k were also badly burned a he Tiesh being roasted Black. There a Ere also severe Burns about the Arm i pits and head All of the hair being burned Froni the Scalp and the top of the head i eing one huge Blister. His j hands and Amis were also a mass of Burns the inside a Quot the hands being i the worst of All. The Little toy. Who is or. Gamble s Gra Fidson was badly burned about the head face Back and arms. It is feared that the Littou fellow inhaled the flames while passing thru the fire and if he did it is a probable that he will die. I the doctors w Ere unable to determine i this yesterday but were hoj Elul that a this would prove to be not the cae and the child would Ull thru. When the i doctors visited there again last night both were in a serious Way and the j Prospect was less hopeful. The child s i respiration was up to 4 and there were i indications of pneumonia in both. He i grew worse As the Kours past How eve r and died last night about 12 o clock. It was thought at Winthrop that the Coal Oil had in some Way become mix with gasoline. It was purchased at Harles Farmer s store in the Village and others who Purchase Oil there the Day before had experiences that led them to believe this. Samuel Rhode and Frank Anderson both had Small explosions the former while starting a fire the same morning and the latter in a lamp. But this i not conclusive Evi Dence of Coal Oil Gen j rates into Gas much More slowly than gasoline Many people refuse to believe that it is explosive when the fact is that the big tractor plows which recently astonish the Farmers of Indiana blowing an acre in four minutes at Purdue derive their Power from Oil which sex lodes in their cylinders exactly As does gasoline in the common gasoline engine. Neither gasoline nor Coal Oil will explode in a fluid state but when converted into Gas or vapor both become highly explosive. The Only difference Between them is that gasoline is so highly refined that it evaporates very rapidly thus forming a vapor without heat. Coal Oil. Contains much grease and evaporates so slowly that unless confined As it sometimes is in the bowl of a lamp it Seldom forms enough Gas to be dangerous unless it becomes heated. In pouring Oil into a stove where there Are soldering coals or onto hot Iron the heat generate s a Gas and when this bursts into flame an i explosion occurs. That you have done this very thing Many times without a j cadent makes no difference altho the is dependent to a certain extent upon the Quality of the Oil. The be to Ter Grade the More dangerous it is and it May be that in the Case at Winthr Oji the dealer merely happened to g. T a Quantity of Oil that was better than he had been handling.

His plan was to suddenly appear in a town and announce himself As a real estate dealer booming a new town in Texas. In some places hand Bills were Isayed. He was anxious to developed the town rapidly and in order to so was giving away a number of lots to those who were Lucky enough to draw the m. Tickets were handed out freely on the Street and at night when the drawings were held it was surprising to see How Many free lots were Given away. The offer included with the free lot a Jiris to Texas to permit the Lucky Dilea to gee the country and the great Prospect which the new town afforded. The trip was to let a made in a special train at the expense of the company promoting the town and As an advertising proposition. The Story sounded feasible and was readily swallowed so when deeds and abstracts to the free lots were produced and made out the Aid of a notary the Lucky recipients did not hesitate in paying the"tran8fer and recording of $3.50.
