Mrs. Barnstable's Horrible Death

Mrs. Frank Barnstable, formerly a resident of Minot, was burned in such a horrible manner at York, where she had lived for the past two years, that she died Monday at three o'clock in the afternoon. The accident took place last Friday, while Mrs. Barnstable was filling a lighted lamp, which exploded. The funeral is to be held in Minot this afternoon, the remains having been brought here from York, today. Interment will take place in the Rose Hill cemetery.

The unfortunate woman was about forty-five years of age. She is survived by her husband, and three sons, Marsh, a resident of River street, this city, Charles and James, and a small daughter, Lillian.

The deceased was a good Christian woman. For many years she was affiliated with the Christian church. About two years ago she left Minot with her family and located at York, where she since resided. It will be remembered that a son, John, died in Minot about two years ago, after a lingering illness.

Mrs. Barnstable was a member of the Ladies' Aid of this city, and that body attended the funeral in a body.
