      DEATH OF W.H. LOVE

      W.H. Love, after nine years of suffering with epileptic fits, died last Friday
      morning at one o'clock. On Tuesday evening he had several fits and another in
      the night. Wednesday morning he got up early and started the fire, and after
      breakfast the men left for their work, and his mother went to the stable to
      milk her cows and left the youngest boy to watch his brother. He went to the
      kitchen and was standing by the fire and was suddenly attacked and fell
      backwards into the fire. His back and right arm were severely burned. He was
      in the fire about five minutes. he had a coat, vest, and two shirts on him,
      and all were burned off except the wristband on the left arm. His right arm
      lay between two sticks of wood in the blaze. He lived 42 hours and died. He
      was a bright boy up to nine years of age, when he was first attacked with
      epilepsy. He had been burned slightly two or three times before. He died last
      Friday at the age of 21 years. I write this at the request of Mr. and Mrs.
      J.A. Love. I waited on him till he died.
