Cleburne, Texas, Dec. 22.
Bertie Francis, 13, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. I. BANNISTER, yesterday displayed much heroism when she saved the life of her 5 year old sister. The little girl caught fire and was soon enveloped in flames. With great presence of mind Bertie Francis tore the burning clothing from the sister, and then carried her outdoors, going back for the baby, after which she put out what fire had caught in the room. The mother, who was some distance away, did not hear the calls for help.
