BURNED TO DEATH.
A telephone message wa9 received by
Mrs. Samuel Daddow, last Thursday,
announcing the sad ending of the earth
ly career of Mrs. D. A- Geil of St. Paul,
a sister of Alfred L. Balimao, who mar
ried Miss Pearle Daddow, of this place.
About five o’clock Wednesday after
noon, of last week, Mrs. Geil was
burned to death.
She was at home alone, wishing to use
some camphor and beiug unable to re
move the glass stopper she sat the bottle
on the gasoline htovo to heat it when
picking the bottle up it exploded throw
ing the contents oyer her clothing, the
vaper igniting from the burning jet of
the stove, she was in a moment envelop
ed in dames. She ran to the folding bed
and tried to secure a quilt to wrap herself
in to smother the fire but she could not
get the bed down, she saw if see stayed
in the house it would be burned, ran out
on the lawn where she threw herself
down and by rolling over and tearing
her burning clothing from her made a
brave fight for her life but to no avail.
Her screams brought help but to late,
when they carried her into tbe bouse
every particle of clothing except about
bei loins was burned, her limbs being
charred to her body, in fact there was
not a spot on her except her face that
was not burned.
All that loving parents and friends
| could do was done to make her las'
i hours easy. By the use of powerful
opiates she was rendered free from jiain
and she was perfectly conscious to
the end. With a fortitude that was the
wonder of all she accepted her fate and
gave a concise description of the ac
cident together with details of how she
wished herj|chfldrea taken care of. Sh“
died at 2 o’clock Thursday morning
Her husband had gone, just the day
before to Excelsior Springs, Missouri to
take treatment for rheumatism and it
was sometime before he could be reach
