Beatrice Thomas, Six-Year-Old Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, Victim

INDIANA, Aug. 18,-- Beatrice Thomas, six-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Thomas, of North Third Street, is in a critical condition at her home suffering from burns sustained when she attempted to light the gas in the kitchen stove at 3 o'clock Saturday afternoon. While the mother was absent from the kitchen, the child secured a box of matches and attempted to light the gas in the stove. When she applied the lighted match the gas exploded and set her clothing on fire. When Mrs. Thomas heard the child's frantic screams, she rushed into the kitchen and smothered the flames, which in an instant's time had almost completely burned her dress and clothing. By the time Mrs. Thomas reached her daughter the flames had badly burned her hands, arm, chest, forearms and hair. It was reported the burns may prove fatal.
