SUFFERING UNTOLD AGONY , SHE
SAVES HER CHILDREN.
GASOLINE CAUSES THE FIRE
Dashing Her Form Into Icy Water ,
She Quenches Flame Her Clothing

to Save the Home and Babes.

Cleaning clothing for the approach-
ng holiday and its celebrations , us-
ng gasoline for the purpose , Mrs. Jo
seph Ilcuss , was burned to death in
a terribly tragic manner , nt her homo
icar Elgin , Nob.
Using nn open pan of gasoline a
short distance from n heated cook
steve , the woman was suddenly cov
ered with flaming fluid as the result
of an explosion. Attempting despe
rately to quench the blaze that en
veloped her body , eating her clothing
and leaping into her face and hair ,
she used up almost all of her
strength. Quilts and blankets which
she slozed In nn effort to stop the
fire , were burned.
Finally despairing in her attempt
io put out the flame , she ran out of
the house , succeeded in reaching the
water tank at the barn and dived into
the Icy liquid. With a hissing , the
water put a stop to the flro but her
clothing had been so nearly destroyed
that the frail particles remaining ,
dropped off Into the tank , leaving the
suffering woman nude. Still courag
eous , however , she ran back to the
house to put out the fire and save her
children. When she had done this ,
she dropped , exhausted , Into a chair ,
where her husband , some hours later ,
found her moaning nnd charred. For
a night and n day she lived in horri
ble agony , finally succumbing.
