George Amrtmrv, who wits play- Ing *SSh Bobby at the time of the truTftic accident, told » fitralght-for- wmrd irtory o£ th« entire affair. Bohfey. "Offirsre and Fred Forstrr had b«*n playing with a footls&ll most of the afternoon «t the Ams- hary home arid had gone to the Ward horn* to se* Bobby's knife. Bobby swnrwled that they bum R pile o! te»vts which he hscl raked together sst the rear of the home purlitr in the day, George warned him against it, but Bobby entered the basement of his home and went up Into the kitchen and secured th* matches. He then went Into the garage and got a gallon can which was hanging on a nail ncur the top of the garage. He had to use a rake to pull it down. Bobby suggested that they see -what kerosene would do. George again wann- ed Bobby against going near the fire and said he started to go home as he was getting scared, "and so was Freddie." George was a short ways away from the bonfire, going toward home when he saw Bobby kneel down and pour out some kerosene. There was an explosion and Bobby was all nfire. The young boy ran about the yard, a human torch. and George had the presence of mind to call Miss Martha Popkins, the maid, and at the same time ran into the house and got a rug. He had some little trouble getting to Bobby but finally the little fellow fell down and George threw the rug over him. Bobby jumped up quickly however, and began running around the yard again. Miss Popkins caught hold of him with some difficulty smothered the flames with her hands and tore his clothing from his body. Someone wrapped a coat around him and Bobby was carried into the house. Miss Martha Popkins, the maid, stated that at noon she had asked Bobby If he wanted to go with her for a visit with her parents east of the city and he said he did. Jane had gone riding with neighbors. Later Bobby decided he wanted to stay and play at Amsbary's, so Miss Popkins remained home. A number of times during the afternoon she looked across the street and saw Bobby and the other boys playing with & football. About 4 o'clock the boys o*rat to the Ward home to look at Bobby 1 * knife and then went out Into the yard. She glanced out and saw George and Fred playing with a football and Bobby was putting some leaves in a small tin. She went out onto the side porch and sat there for but a few minutes when she heard the explosion and heard George call for her — About that time she saw Bobby all afire, running around ,the yard. After being carried Into the house the little fellow ran upstairs himself and called to the others that there was some good salve up there. Soda and the calve were applied to the burned surface awaiting the arrival of Dr. Reavley, who came in a few minutes and took Bobby to the hospital. The little fellow remained conscious for several hours. His condition did not take a change for the worse until about 10 o'clock and from then on he gradually grew weaker until he passed away.
