    • About half-past nine o'clock last evening July 23, 1874, a sad and fatal accident occurred to Effie Landgraff, 191 East Railroad street, Syracuse. Miss L. is nineteen years; she had been playing on the piano at her father's residence, and had just finished. In closing the cover of the instrument it came in contact with a lamp held by a lad named John Moran. The lamp was knocked to the floor; the kerosene running out and igniting, setting fire to Miss Landgraff's dress. Instantly the lower part of her garments were in flames. She ran into the street and to the residence of Mrs. Moran, corner of Irving street, several houses distant. Reaching this point she was a mass of flames from her waist down. Persons present at once tore the burning garments away and carried her back home. Dr. Hubbell was called, and Drs. Mercer and George came to his assistance. Miss L. was found most severely injured. The skin came off her legs and a portion of her body. Everything was possible done to mitigate her sufferings.

      Mr. Landgraff is an employee in the glass factory, and was absent, with his wife, at Dugway, on the Northern road. A telegram was sent and the family were expected last night. Syracuse Standard later report states that the young lady was taken more worse in the morning, and died at nine o'clock. She had a great desire to see her parents, and every effort was made to have them reach the city in time to see her before she died, but they did not arrive until 11 o'clock, when their grief was almost overwhelming. The afflicted family were residents of Cleveland a year or so ago, and have several relatives here at present. The unfortunate young lady is highly spoken of by our people and general sorrow is manifested at this frightful event. [1]
