    Harry E. Thomas who had been in Mercy hospital since July 9th when he suffered burns while pouring gasoline from one can into another, died there Monday night. At the time the burns were not considered serious, it being believed that he was suffering from shock and exhaustion, but consequent complications proved fatal.
    Harry Ellsworth Thomas, son of Randolph B. and Sylvia Coon Thomas, was born January 12, 1875, at Albion. Here he grew to manhood. He attended the district school, and went several terms to Albion academy. He was baptized February 27, 1892, by Rev. E. A. Witter, and joined the Albion Seventh Day Baptist church.
