The family was living in a tepee at 476 Sidney Avenue after the house fire. Well, the father was. Apparently Rose was staying with a neighbor along with her mother. The dates in the original article don't jibe with this one from November 15, 1905. The original said that she was burned on the 2nd but was in the home on the 14th in this one when it was burned down. Unless there were two fires. Or the Free Press was once again inept in their fact-finding mission. No matter. She was not being properly cared for and her family was unstable. Proof in point is the mention that her father William Day had shot his young son to death 10 years previously when he pointed a supposedly empty gun at him and "clicked".
