TRAGIC VILLAGE FIRE, Curate's Wife and Child Burned to Death. A sad occurrence took pKce on the morning of the 3rd inst., in the villa, of Yardley Gobion, Northamptonshire, by which the wife and only child of the Rev. Ernest Alfred Lloyd, curate-in- charge, were burned to death in bed. Mr. Lloyd was rescued in an unconscious condition, and for a time his life was despaired of. He is twenty- nine years of age, and was formerly curate at St. Cuthbert's, Hampstead. His wife, to whom he was married three years ago, was a daughter of Colonel Graham, also of Hampstead. The fire was discovered at four o'clock by Mr. Lloyd, who was sleeping in a room adjoining that occupied by his wife rld child. He ran to his wife's room, and found the bed on fire and the room full of flame and smoke. Opening the window he shouted for help, and was then over- come. His cries had, however, been heard by Police-constable Pollard, who obtained a ladder and mounted to the window. When he saw that the room was full of fire he returned for an axe, with which he burst open the front door. He then rushed to the burning bedroom. On the landing he stumbled across the unconscious body of Mr. Lloyd. Having carried him from the house, he returned to the bedroom, but was unable to enter. The cause of the fire is unknown, but it was stated at the inquest that Mrs. Lloyd had a night-light burning on a table at the side of the bed to keep the baby's food warm. This, it is supposed, was upset.
