A Baby Burned To Death

Its Clothing Caught Fire While It Was Playing Around a Bonfire

Albert Very, aged a year and a half, son of Frank Very of Matawan, was burned to death a few days ago. Mrs. Very went in the garden to pick bugs off of potato vines, leaving her three children at play in the dooryard. The oldest child is four years of age. One of the children started a fire among some chips at the woodpile and while playing around it Albert's dress caught fire. The screams of the children attracted Mrs. Very, but before she reached the baby its dress was all ablaze. The fire was put out with a pan of water that stood near by, but the baby was so badly burned that it died three hours afterward. Mrs. Very was badly burned on the hands and arms in putting out the fire.
