Otherwise Little Ones Might Have
Been Burned.

A house set afire by children yesterday was saved by another child, Willie Walker, who lives at 213 West Eighteenth street. He was passing by Mrs. B. F. Stine's home at 12 West Sixteenth and saw window curtains afire. Mrs. Stine had gone shopping and left two small children at home who improved their opportunity to play with matches. But for the neighbor boy's discovery and prompt action the lives of the little innocent mischief makers might have been lost. As it was the fire was extinguished with only a trifling loss.
