Death of Bessie Maude Garman of Franklin county, Pa.

"A search after a lost nickel resulted in the horrible death of Bessie Garman, a 14-year-old miss, at Mount-Alto Junction, Franklin county, Monday morning. Saturday evening Miss Garman was playing with a baby niece, and during the play the infant dropped a five-cent piece, which rolled under a table. Miss Garman began a hunt under the table, overturned it and dragged down a parlor lamp upon her head. In a moment the young woman was a mass of flames. The other women in the room were too frightened to give her any assistance and the girl was so badly burned that she died Monday morning. The baby came out of the fire without a scratch or burn.
