The 3-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. S.W. Gibbons, of Philomath, climbed up on a table at the family home Saturday night and got some matches and in some manner set himself on fire. He was still standing on the table when an older brother discovered him to be on fire. The little fellow only lived about an hour after being burned.
