Fort Thomas, Ky., June 30, - Miss Ollie Lindorf was burned to death at her home, on Weierick avenue, Wednesday morning.  In endeavoring to revive a smoldering fire she poured kerosene on live coals.  The can exploded.

NKY Views wouldn't normally post this story, but we're intrigued by “Weierick Avenue.”  Ever hear of it?  And it is possible the Maysville paper just screwed up the story . . .
