AD.  Child Victim of Painful Burns.  Terry, eight-year-old son of  Mr. and Mrs. Earl Hatchett, was badly burned on the right leg Saturday at his home on Morgan Street.  He and his brother, Clarence, had built a small bonfire and when the grass in the yard caught fire, Terry tried to stamp out the flame.  The cowboy suit he was wearing caught fire.  His screams brought his mother, who was endeavoring to remove the garment when Mr. Charlie Lyons, who happened to be passing, assisted Mrs. Hatchett in smothering the flames.  So intense was the suffering of the child that it was necessary to spray treatment on the injured leg.  It will be several weeks before he will be able to walk.
