Carelessly Thrown, Started a Fire Fatally Burning Girl.

Emporia, Kans., March 22 -- A match carelessly thrown over a fence by a passerby started a fire which caused the death last night of Lela Botkin, six-year-old Emporia school girl. The fire spread to a pile of leaves and the girl was fatally burned trying to put out the flames.
