FATALLY SCALDED. The sad fate of a little girl into boiling milk. Myrtle Hill, a three-year-old child burned so bad that doctors were powerless to save.
Tuesday morning, Mrs. Henry Hill, of the third ward, scalded some milk and placed the crock containing it near the door of this house to cool. Her little daughter Myrtle aged three years and five weeks was playing around the house, when by some means she fell backwards into the milk crock and before she could be rescued by the frantic mother and her clothing removed, she had been so badly burned that Dr. Wright who was at once summoned, could give no encouraging assurance of recovery. All that could be done failed, and the little one died Wednesday morning from shock. The remains were buried at Quinnesec yesterday afternoon, after appropriate services at the M. E. church conducted by Rev. F. Strong. The little one was an unusually pretty and bright child and Mr. and Mrs. Hill are prostrated with grief at her sudden and tragic death. They have the sympathy of the entire community and appreciating the many kind offices performed for them in their hour of affliction; desire publically express their thanks to all. The many floral tributes were beautiful and appropriate. Some relatives of the family from Ishpeming were present at the burial.(The Current Newspaper (Saturday, July 27, 1895, No 26, Norway, Dickinson, Michigan)
