A Little Babe Burned To Death.

On Wednesday of last week, little Laura, the two year and six months old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Phil Daly, of Salt Creek, was horribly burned, and received injuries from which she died the day following. The mother, it seems, had stepped out of the room for a few moments, and in her absence, the babe began poking the fire with a stick. In some way the fire got on the floor and set the child's clothes on fire. It began burning at her feet, and almost instantly enveloped the little one in its cruel flames. The child was discovered almost as soon as its clothes caught fire, but too late to save its life. It lingered until the following day. The funeral took place in the Catholic church, Valparaiso, on Saturday, and was largely attended. The grieving parents have the sincere sympathy of the community in their sad affliction.
