DANGERS OF CELLULOID. Child Succumbs. [Newspaper Article] — Port Melbourne Standard — 8 August 1914
DANGERS OF CELLULOID. Child Succumbs. It will be learned with regret by the many friends df Mr. H. Mic hell, the well-known pressman, that his child Harry, aged four, suc cumbed to an attack of blood poi soning at the Children's Hospital on Tuesday last. Mr. and Mrs. Michell have been the recipients of many expressions of sympathy. It will be remembered that the child was playing with a hair comb manufactured of celluloid about 6 weeks ago, and that the article came. into contact with the fire, in front of which he was sitting in the coldness of the winter day, and burst into a flame .that enveloped his face in a moment of time. It was thought that he was well on the way to recovery at the hospital, though it was seen that the loss of the sight of one eye wa$ inevitable; but graver symptoms set in a few days ago, and little hole was enter tained of his recovery. It is to be hoped that this most pathetic illus tration of the murderous potentiali ties that lurk within the brightly col...
