Racine, 13. Miss Emma Kamph of Kenosha
, in company with Frank Shirley came to Racine in a buggy and as they turned the corner of 13th and Villa streets
the young lady discovered that her clothing was on fire. She jumped from the buggy, and the breeze fanned the flames so that she was completely enveloped. Sandal Herzog and a young lady were near by, tore her clothes from her body to extinguish the fire. She was terribly burned from her feet to the top of her head, hardly a stitch of clothing being left on her body. Shirley was smoking a cigar, and it is supposed that the fire caught from that. Miss Kamph will probably die.
