One of the most shocking and heart re iming tragedies that Lias Ever taken Pla j in Danville occurred saturday afternoon when tin clothing of Little Lizzie my cd. The eleven year old a daughter of or. And mrs. Patrick or vey Ash Street took fire the last shred nearly burning from her body the injuries inflicted being of such a serious nature that death resulted about twelve hours later. The terrible occurrence took place shortly after one o clock. The family of Harry Hancock who resided a couple of doors from the Mcvey Home were moving and some papers which had lain under the carpet had been carried out into the Hack Yard and set on fire. The tire it was supposed had burned out and the several women who were assisting at the moving were Busy in the House when they were startled by loud Ami agonized screams in the Back Yard while nearly at the same moment Margaret Powers and Cora Scott two Little gins playing in the rear came flying front crying that Lizzie Mcvey was on fire. Mrs. Hancock mrs. Eugene harder and mrs. George employed in fainting d. L amp a. Station Fine a improvements. The 1. L. It w. Railroad company yesterday completed Tom extensive Concrete work Ems racing station platform and lengthy walk Down to Churchi which a Largo Force of workmen were employed for nearly Lour weeks. The Concrete gang is now off the ground Aud their place is occupied by the painters who Are giving the station and other buildings a new coat of paint. All must agree that the i. I. Amp w. Railway company is showing a vast amount of Enterprise and the sum total of improvements made is rather More than was to lie expected in one season tar embracing platform and pavement leading to Church Street the stretch of co Crete work constructed is Over live Hundred feet in length. The platform was completed last week. The pavement which was thrown open to f. Boud the Public yesterday is a very Fine of Inan. Followed by Ralph Fisher who was hauling the goods instinctively rushed into the Back Yard to save the child. A spectacle followed Itiat will haunt them to their dying Days. The was already a pillar of flame and frantic with pain and terror could not be controlled Long enough to make the efforts to extinguish the lire of any Avail of his own safety fair Aud is a feature that will he especially appreciated by the travelling j Public. Before the co Crete pavement was constructed people on approaching or child leaving the station walked close along easy Bryan a now boys All we have to do is to Knock out that Keystone and the whole Arch will fall a Funni the Philadelphia inquirer. Ide the track which when trails were passing made it just a Little dangerous. The Concrete walk therefore has been Laid at the extreme while Ralph Fisher regardless Southern Side of the tract owned by tried to tear the the Railroad company some ten feet clothing off the child mrs. Harder and from the track. Mrs. Hancock seized a Rug with the intention of smothering out the fire hut before they could use it the child broke Loose from or. Fisher and made a dash for mrs. Boudman. Very one was in peril of being set on fire by the frantic child who screaming nil beat aug off the flames that darted up around her face dashed first in one direction Aud then in another. Mrs. Boudman barely escaped coming in Couttet with the burning child when or. Fisher by Wallace Scott who by this time had Uriv d. Again caught the child and Tore from her body the remnant of clothing that still remained 011 her person. In the operation both men were burned about the hands or Fisher so badly that he was unable to continue at work. The child herself was a frightful object. Her hair and her eyebrows were burned from her head. Her face and her lips were shockingly burned and the blood oozed from her Mouth. Her one limb from her hip to her knee was burned raw. While on her Pulire body from her Knees tit the top of her head the skill was burned off in Large spots. Notwithstanding she did not lose con serious be s. Lome one flew to Frank Bussell s grocery. A Square or so away and called or. Bad Les by Telephone. Feuding the physician s arrival the child bore her awful agony in a Way that was remarkable. Her Little body with its iwo Ful tortures presented a picture that melted the stoutest heart while the nauseating odor of burned flesh added to the horror of the situation. As soon As or. Paules arrived the usual remedies in such eases were applied. The body was wrapped in Cotton which excluded the air Aud brought some Relief. The child seemed to rest fairly easily saturday evening hut while the doctor did what lie could to assure the family he could not lose sight of the fact that the injuries were of a very grave sort the month was still bleeding and the amount of injury sustained internally could not be fully cases of that kind even when the patient promises to recover from the a mined 1 ate effect of the Hurning if frequent in happens that a stomach derangement follows that results in death. In the Case of Little Lizzie Mcey the result did not Long hang in the balance. Her injury As can easily be imagined was of the very gravest sort. Death proved kindly and came to her Relief shortly after Midnight. How the Little girl hip Pound to take fire is not exactly known. With the other two Little girls both smaller than would seem she was playing in the Back Yard of the residence being vacated. Whether she revived the flame and continued to feed if with Pas a and thus took fire or in playing accidentally came in Contact with the smouldering embers no one seems to know. It is a very sail affair. Lizzie was a blight and lovable child and the stricken parents have the deepest sympathy in this the hour of their and trial and bereavement.
