The presence of mind of 8-year-old Isabelle Smith , of Cedar Hill, near St. Denis, probably saved her life about 6 o'clock Saturday evening when, with her clothes a mass of flames, due to playing with a pile of burning railroad ties, she ran to a brook near by and plunged headlong into the water. Isabelle and several other girls of about her own age were playing near the railroad and were attracted by the burning pyre of ties.

EDITORIAL FROM THE AEGIS | August 6, 2013
Year in and year out, there's a certain rhythm to particular kinds of problems. When the weather turns warm and school has let out for summer break, there's often an uptick in petty neighborhood incidents. In March and October, before the leaves are on the trees or before there's a hard freeze, respectively, brush fires pop up across Harford County and Maryland. Typically, if there's a spate of house fires, it relates to the changing of the season from summer to autumn as people are making use of fireplaces and turning on appliances that have been dormant for weeks or months.
