While seated near a hot stove
one evening last week the clothing
nf a little son of J. W. 1 oet, of 1 e
dee, caught fire and serious results
were prevented by the prompt
action of . Mr. Yost in smothering
the flames. The little boy had
been training hops during the day
and as the work required him to
be on his knees most of the time he
had prepared a "pad" made from
the cloth used on the floor of the
hop nouse as a protection to his
knee, and as by use the ciotn naa
become so thoroughly impregnated
with sulphur that it was highly
susceptible ot combustion and
readily ignited from the heat of
the stove. The incident shows
the danger of leaving old kiln
cloth where it is likely to be ex
posed to any great degree of heat.
