WORK OF THE GRIM REAPER
Emma, the little 8 year old daughter
of Mr. Harry Maloy, of Stella Street,
Ft. Pitt, was fatally burned
Monday afternoon and died from the
effect of her terrible burns the
following night. The child was
playing near a grate in a room of
their home, with a younger brother,
when running too close to the fire,
her clothing became ignited and in
an instant she was a mass of flames.
She ran towards her brother who
became terrified and fled from the
house, with the little girl
crazed with pain running after.
Mr. John Carothers, a relative
who lives nearby, hearing the
childs cries hurried to the
scene and carried the little girl,
who was in a fainting condition
into the house. In a few moments,
Mr. Maloy, who had been away but
a short time on an errand, and
found his daughter, whom he had
left playing in childish glee,
burned and charred and gasping
for breath. Medical aid was
summoned and everything possible
was done to relieve the unfortunate
child, but to no avail and on
Tuesday at 10 a.m. the grim
reaper, reliever her of suffering.
Funeral services were conducted
Wednesday at 3 o'clock by Rev.
Leithch of the U.P. Church.
Internment followed at
Jeannette Cemetery. The child's
tragic end has cast a gloom
over the entire community.
