News story printed in the Dallas Morning News
Special to The News - Sherman, Tex., Sep 27- At noon today the
residence of Tom Thompson of Ida, nine miles east of Sherman, burned. The
little 4-year-old daughter, mary, was burned so badly that the physicans
say she cannot possibly live. The fire originated, it is believed, when
the child struck a match and set some powder on fire, which she found in
one of the rooms. The blaze burned both of her eyes out, and she was badly
burned about the body. The mother, hearing her screams ran in and carried
her from the building.
