Thomas Connor's Fall at tho .
Meadow Brook Breaker.
Thomas Burns, of 125 Stone avenue,
died at 12.30 yesterday morning at the
age of 11 years. He was one or tne
pioneer settlers in Scranton and lived
since 1S47 on the South Side, and during
all tha,t time until two years ago he
worked as an employe or tne j.ucKa-
wanno. Iron and Coal company. Eigh
teen months ago he sustained a stroke
of paralysis and since then he suffered
much. Thre weeks ago another stroke
affected him, which caused his death.
Although he was an old man, his vi
tality was very remarkable.
His wife and the following named
family survive him: M. J. Burns, fore
man for Hunt Conell; James Hums
and Mrs. Mary Flanaghan. of this city;
Thomas Bums, of Chlcugo; Mrs. John
McDonald and Miss Ella Burns, of

made In Hyde Park Catholic cemetery.
A Boy's Awful Fall.
How Thomas Connors, a boy 15
years old, son of James Connors, of
1725 Cedar avenue, escaped being klled
yesterday afternoon, is a mystery. He
fell from the trestle of the Meadow
Brook breaker to the ground, a dis
tance of about forty feet. He was play
ing with some companions and was
running when he lost his balance and
fell over. Those who were with him
carried him to the pump house on Breck
street and later he was carried home.
Dr. J. A. Manley was sent for. There
were no broken bones found nor any
serious bruises, but there Is a concus
sion of the brain, and whether or not
it wll prove fatal is a mater that can
not be determined for a few dayB. The
doctor thinks, however, that the chances
are favorable to the lad's recovery.
It Was False Alarm.
A few minutes before 6 o'clock last
evening an alarm of Are was sent In
bfom box 49 at the corner of Beech
street and Stone avenue. . The fire
companies responded, but there was no
fire to be found. 'Some one had im
agined there was a blase and set up a
shout that a house was burning. Smoke
seen issuing from a house chimney
caused the alarm fb be rung.
