and Mrs, Carlton B. Tar bell, who wcro as

wcro held at St. Paul schaiiol In this city the
afternoon of tho II 1st . Revs. J. Ishnin
and (1. Y. Bliss ofllclateil. The beautiful
lloral offerings sent by sorrowing friends in
cluded a wreath from tho Lambda Iota soci

sight of two hearses in a funeral procession
was unusual. 1 ho remains wero placed in
tho vault in Lako View cemetery.
The St. Puul Pioneer Press of January 27
gives tholollowlng particulars of thu sad
double death: 'When Mr. and Mrs. Tarbell
did not appear at, breakfast it was suggested
that thi'y had probably been calling tho
evening before. But when 0 o'clock camo
and they still remained In their apartments
Mr. Caniibell,owncr of tho house, visited their
looms. Tho door was found locked and a
faint odor of escaping gas could be detected.
When uo answer was received to tho re
peated summons for admission tho door
was liroken oien and tho rooms wero
found to be full of gas. Tho cause
of tho catastrophe was apparent. A rub
ber tube had slipped from nn ordinary
gas pipe tap In the kitchen, connecting a
stove, and the full current of gas was es
caping. From the kitchen tho exploring
party went to the pallor and there, near a
door, they found the dead body of Mr. Tar
bell on tho carpeted floor and ou a folding
bed in a bedroom oil' tho parlor lay Mrs.
Windows wero opened nud Mrs. Tarbell
was taken to tho lre'&li air. .Meanwhile
four physicians wero summoned, but al
though every iipplinnco known to thu medi
cal profession iu cuses of asphyxiation wero
brought Into use thoellorts of tlio physicians
procd of no avail,
Mr. Tarbell was !)! years old. Ho was
employed ns shipping cleric bv tho North
western Lleearical Supply company, and
had many friends among tho young bust
noss men of this city. Mrs. Tarbell was 28
years old. Her maiden namo wna Laura
Tho thoorv is advanced bv Coroner AVhit
comb that the rubber tube through which
tho gss llowod from tho pipo tap to the
kitchen contracted with tho cold, und that
when tho numerous lights of the city were
turned oil' after midnight, causing a strong
er current of gas to llow, tho increased
force cracked tho tube where it was fastened
to tho tap. Gradually the seam became
larger, and finally the force of tho escaping
current of gas split the tttbo and it was
forced from tho tup, allowing the gas to cs
eopo unobstructed. Tho condition of tho
rubber tube bears out this theory . It was
lying on tho lloor directly under tho tap,
und tho end which had been fastened over
tho pipo was split open. Tho doors leading
from the kitchen to tho bedroom through
the parlor wero open, and all tho windows
to thu apartments wero tightly closed.
Coroner Whitcouib thinks that Mr. Tar
bell was awakened by tho choking sensation
preceding asphyxiation, and, realizing the
danger, tried, while in a teriibly bewildered
condition, to reach tho tap in tho kitchen.
Ho had gained the purlor door, which had
been closed. Upon opening this aperture ho
received tho uisli of gas full in the face and
succumbed at once', not being able to cross
tho threshold. Had he not lieen almost over
come w hen awakened ho could havo broken
a window in the bed room and saved both
his lifo and that of his wife.
Mr. Tarbell was a son of Hon, Jonathan
Tarbell of AVashingtoii, 1). C, who was born
atMoriiih, X. Y., in 1S20 and graduated from
tho Norwich iVt.i military acadoiny. AVhen

district havo been set oil' to other
schools soeral times, yet both the
primary aud intermediate schools of that
district nro now- overcrowded and tlje over
crowding must bo provided for. By the
construction of a new building for thu
Falls district, in a new loe-ution, the pupils
in the easterly part of the Pomeroy district
could be transferred to the Falls school and
thus necessary relief be afforded.
'And we further represent that during the
last term, tho North avenue school house
was discovered to 1,0 uiisafo and liable to
collapse at any timo and after careful exam
ination by competent builders and by our
selves was condemned and abandoned. The
school iu that district is temporarily occupy
ing u part of a dwelling house. The condi
tion of the building is such that it cannot bo
repaired and rendered fit for occupancy. For
tho land and building iu the Falls district,
and for the building in tho North
avenue district wo estimate that tho
sum of 20.000 will be required. AVe there
fore pray your honorable body to approve
our action in the premises and this state
ment, and to provide tho necessary funds in
such manner as to you shall seem for the
interests of the city, fur the purchase of Un
real estate and fur tho construction of the
buildings, tho necossty for which is set forth
herein." The statement was signed by tho
full board of school commissioners and the
superintendent of schools.
