Occupant9 of the boarding-house conduct
ed by Mrs. Mary Gleason at No. 1117 Cass
avenue narrowly escaped asphvxlatlon while
asleep Wednesday night. Two of tbcm,
Charles W. Larrimore and John Kane, were
rescued In the nick of time by the landlady,
who discovered that tho house was tilled
with gas when she awoke at 3 o'clock jes
Larrimore and Kane were unconscious
when they were dragged from their beds to
the open air and It was thought they were
dead. Kane remained unconscious for .an
hour, and Larrimore, viho was taken to the
City Ho-jpital, remained unconscious for
several hours' Late jestcrday afternoon he
he had not fully recovered from the gas In
haled. John Fent. Mrs. Gleason nnd other board
ers were affected by the fumes, but not to
an alarming extent. 31 rs. Gleason was com
pelleil to tako to her bed after she aroused
her boarders, on account of nervo isness.
It seems that Larrimoro was expecting his
wife and two children, now in Indianapolis,
to Join him and reside with him at Mrs.
Gleason's house. Wednesday he took down
tho gas fixtures, which belonged to 3Irs.
Lucy Boach, daughter of Mrs. Gleason, who
moved into the house next door. He neg
lected to put caps on the pipe- because ho
thought the gas had been turned off. 3lrs.
Boach said that she notified the gas com
pany to turn off the gas several days ago
and that she was under the Impression that
tho matter had been attended to.
It was fortunate for Larrimore and Kane
that Mrj. Gleason did not sleep later than
usual yesterday morning. Had she done so,
or had tho gas affected her as It did them,
thej probably would have been suffocated.
Knocking failed to arouso them and It was
necessary to break open tho doors of their
rooms and to drag them out. Both men are
now out of danger.
