-Last Thursday, there occurred one of the most sad events ever recorded in our village. Ray, the five-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Geo. O'BRIEN, had obtained some matches, and while alone in the barn, in some way started a fire from which his clothing was ignited and he ran screaming from the building. Mr. T. A. CARNEY happened to be on the opposite side of the street and went to his aid, but in the child's fright he ran from him across the side street into a neighbor's yard, where his mother had gone a moment before. Mr. CARNEY wrapped his coat about him and smothered the flames and carried him home, and summoned medical aid, and all that was possible was done to relieve his suffering, but to no avail, as he died about eight o'clock. The body was taken to Bay City Friday for interment, and was accompanied to the train by scores of his little schoolmates, and an immense concourse of our citizens, who thus expressed the deepest sympathy for the bereaved ones. (16 Nov 1899)
