FATAL SPARK FROM A CIGAR

MILWAUKEE, Wis., Jul 1914. -- Miss Emma Kempf, a pretty, young woman of Kenosha, who was visiting in Racine, went buggy riding with Frank Shirley last evening. A spark from Shirley's cigar set her clothing on fire and she was horribly burned before the flames were extinguished. She lingered in great agony until this noon, when death ended her sufferings.
