BURNED TO DEATH
A Lady Fell in the Fire in an Epileptic Fit.
Geneva, March 13. - [Special] - Mrs. Cicero Harvey, who has long been afflicted with epilepsy, was found dead in her home in this place, about 9 o'clock this morning. Her body was found lying on the hearth burnt and charred, beyond recognition, presenting a most sickening and heartrending spectacle. It is supposed she had a fit and fell upon her face in the fire, no one being in the house of on the premises at the time to rescue her. Her little babe, 3 months old, was found unhurt, lying quietly asleep in its little crib.
