DAVIS BURNED TO DEATH - OLD LADY'S TERRIBLE FATE - BEDROOM IN FLAMES - VICTIM DEAD WHEN FOUND - FIRE IN UPPER QUEEN STREET - April 1914. A shocking fatality occurred in the early hours of yesterday morning. As the result of a fire in an old two-storyed five roomed house situated in Upper Queen Street, just below its junction with East Street, an old lady named Annie Davis, aged 70 years, was burned to death. A little after one o'clock the wife of the occupier of the house, whose name is Thomas Allbon, a seaman on the Rarawa, was lying awake, when she heard peculiar sounds in the front room, let to Mrs Davis. Thinking her lodger was ill, Mrs Allbon hastened to ascertain what was the matter, and she was horrified to find flames darting from under the closed door.
A MASS OF FLAMES - Immediately she called her husband. Opening the door, he saw the room was a mass of flames, and that Mrs Davis was lying face downwards beside the bed. She was then evidently dead. Peter Perkins, a storekeeper, whose shop is next door on the corner of East Street, was next on the spot, and he entered the blazing room, and dragged the body to the door. With other assistance, the deceased was then lifted out on to the footpath. Meanwhile more neighbours arrived, and one of them gave the alarm. The brigade arrived promptly, and had little difficulty in confining the flames practically to the front bedroom.
BODY TERRIBLY BURNED - The attention of Constables D. Millar and Robertson, who were on duty in Karangahape Road, near Pitt Street, was first drawn to the locality by hearing loud screams. It was afterwards learnt that these were uttered by a woman living next door, who had become hysterical. Hastening to the house, they found flames bursting from the front bedroom. On the footpath was the naked body of the deceased, every limb being severely burned. The outbreak having been extinguished by the brigade, the body was placed in one of the motor engines, and removed to the mortuary. Dr Grant pronounced life to be extinct.
DECEASED PROBABLY FAINTED - The origin of the fire is a mystery. The deceased should have been able to have escaped from the burning room without much difficulty, as the footpath is only a couple of steps from the bedroom door, which was unlocked. According to Mrs Allbon, the deceased, who suffered from a weak heart, habitually rose during the night to obtain a drink of water. It is, therefore, presumed that in some way she set a curtain behind the door alight with the candle, and then fainted.
VALUABLES DESTROYED - The deceased was an old age pensioner, and was the widow of the late Mr Charles B. Davis, who was for many years headmaster of the Howick school. The amount of the damage is not known, though the room was supposed to have contained many valuables in the shape of jewellery and mementoes belonging to deceased. These it is believed were worth about £60. The furniture was not insured. Much credit is due to the brigade for its promptness in attending the fire, as there is a long row of closely-built houses adjoining Mr Albon's house. There were also three young children in the house, and they had to be got out by Mr Allbon immediately he discovered the danger. Buried All Saints" Cemetery 8th April 1914 as Eliza Ann Davis.

DUFFY Death of a Crimean Hero - Francis Duffy, an old Crimean veteran, and a twenty years' resident in the vicinity of Helensville, passed away one day last week under what may be described as pitiable circumstances. This hale old soldier has led rather a hard life of late, living in a whare by himself at Maeretahi, near Shelly Beach. The late very inclement weather had told on him with his scanty attire in his miserable and cold dwelling, unable to light a fire through his matches being soaked with the rain, too ill to seek food, the poor old fellow gradually sank and expired alone, and his emaciated condition too truly and too sadly tell the tale as to the cause of death. He was found lying dead across the door of his shanty, clad only in a shirt and one sock, by a rough but kind-hearted gumdigger named Henry McGoldrick, who had been his last earthly friend, and who has told at the inquest held before Mr Sinclair, coroner, at Helensville on June 18, facts concerning the old man's condition. He had latterly found him sick in his bunk, and without food, and he had travelled 14 miles in order to procure some for him several times, but on one occasion was prevented through stress of weather from returning with his boat for nearly ten days. He had recommended the old fellow to try and gain admission to the Home, and had given him a letter to Constable O'Brien, setting forth his condition and wants, but Duffy refused to partake of public charity, and the well-meant letter was found amongst his belongings by the constable. Four days before being found dead he had sought McGoldrick's help in the latter's whare, situate one mile from his own. The visit was made during the night, long before daylight, and during a heavy thunderstorm and downpour of rain. In reply to enquiries he said he had been "marched there by old Tom." His mind was wandering. Refreshments were given him, and he returned home. McGoldrick saw him once again only before his death. There was no doctor present in Helensville to give medical evidence, but the jury, of whom Mr E. Hadrill was chosen foreman, were satisfied that there was no suspicion of foul play, and a verdict was recorded to the effect that deceased had died a natural death, accelerated by the want of proper and common necessities of life. Frank Duffy, - such is the irony of fate - was awarded a pauper's funeral, and interred in the Helensville Cemetery. He joined the British army at the age of eighteen.
