Lamp Explosion

Mrs. Harmon of West Point, while visiting at Kearney, met with a terrible accident. A lamp exploded, throwing the burning oil over her entire body. Her cries immediately brought friends to her assistance, but not before every particle of clothing was burned from her body, and her flesh badly blistered and burned from the soles of her feet to the top of her head. It is doubtful that she will survive.
