the Carroll Chronicle, Carrollton, Ohio, Friday, February 8, 1878.

Child Burned--A shocking accident happened in this place, Saturday last, about noon. An interesting little son of Mr. Melville Karns, about fourteen months old, had acquired a habit of playing about the stove; and at the time above-mentioned, while his mother was at the coal house, his clothing caught fire. The screams of the child attracted the mother to the house in haste, where she found it enveloped in flames; she threw it on the bed and wrapped it in the bed clothes and succeeded in smothering the fire. The child lingered in great agony for about twelve hours when it died. It had inhaled the fire and was burned internally that it became necessary to inter it Sunday afternoon. The parents of the child are in deep anguish over their loss, and have the sympathy of the public.
