A sad and distressing accident occurred in Milán, Sunday morning between nine and ten o'clock. Mrs. Harvey Hitchcock's screams startled the neighbors f rom their Sunday quiet by cries of agony, caused by her clothing being in flames. They liad caught írom an overturned lamp and in her flight she ruslied out iu the open air and in a moment was enveloped in llames. Many went to her rescue but not before shè was burned froin her liead to her f eet. Doctors Chapin and Messic dressed the burns but the shock was too great to be survived and she died Sunday p. rn. at half-past four o'clock. She leaves a husbaml and one daughter, a loving mother and brothers and sisters. The funeral services were held at the residence, Tuesdav a. m. Rev. J. Ward Stone, officiating. The floral offerings were beautiful. Deceased was interred in the York eemetery. The Fhonographic concert underthe auspices of the B. Y. P. U., at the Baptist church, Tuesday evening, was a suecess.
