Burns Fatal To Girl.  Eva, the ten-year-old daughter of T.M. Erb, died from the effects of burns received in a gasoline explosion, which occurred at her home north of Newton.  The father is in a critical condition from burns received in an effort to save his daughter.  Gasoline used in a lighting machine in the cellar leaked into the waterpan and an explosion came when the father lighted a match to work with the machine.  The Alta Vista Journal, Alma, Kansas.  September 26, 1912.  Page 7.
