* "Napoleon Girl is Burned to Death"
The little seven-year-old daughter of Bernard Kasman, thirteen miles southwest of Wishek, lost her life Monday afternoon by being burned to death while playing around a burning straw stack.

She had taken a lunch out to the field for her father about 3:30 p.m., and started for home again. The day was chilly and it is supposed she stopped by the burning straw stack to get warm and that she either got too close or was playing with the fire and in that way her clothing caught fire, and she was burned to death.

The little girl was not missed until evening, when her father returned from the field, the mother supposing the child had remained with him. A search, in which the neighbors joined, was instituted and continued until 3 a.m. next morning, when it was abandoned until daylight. The sad fate of the little one was not heard until 10:30 Tuesday morning, when the remains were found near the straw stack.
