Daughters of Mr. and Mrs. John Curran, of Everett, Wash,, Meet a Shocking Death by the Explosion of a Chafing Dish. Mrs. Dr. Betts, her sister, Frances Curran and Miss Jessie Broadbent, were fearfully burned at 3:45. today, (Thursday June 26th.) at Mrs. Betts home, on Rucker Ave., near California. They were nsiog a chafing dish. It is said to have exploded, throwing burning alcohol over them. Mrs. Betts, with clothing in fianies, can in’o the Wharton home, next door. Mrs. Whar ton ihrew rugs around her and extin guished the names. Mrs. Betts and Miss Curran are in a serious condition. Their faces may be scarred for life. The clothing of the two women was burned almost entirely off. There wat great excitement in the neighborhood. Crying women stood about the house for an hour. A half dozen doctors were called. Mrs. Betts is a bride of a week. Deputy postmaster Ed wards, who was passing, rushed in to help the women. His hands were painfully scorched. MAY BE KATAL. It was later reported that Mrs. Betts may be fatally burned.—Everett (Wash ington) Evening Record. The sad news reached this city yes terday. Mrs. Betts and Miss Frances Curran are daughters of Mr. and Mrs. John Curran,formerely of Rbinelamleq the former being Pearl Curran and who was married to Dr. Betts one week previously, and the young ladies are very well known in Wausau having visited relatives hereon many occasions. Miss Betts was a student in one of our schools for oue year. LATER. James McCrossen received a letter tais moiiiing from Mrs. McCrossen. who is at Everett, giviug an account of the terrible accident, and stated that the young ladies were engaged in mak ing caudy. Mrs. Betts and Miss Frances Curran both died on the same day of the accident. Their mother, accom panied by her daughter, Miss Muriel, w'as in Tacoma and could not reach home in time to see her daughters alive. Dr. Tom Curran was at the Hot Springs. The funeral took place on Saturday, June 28th. The shuck to the relatives and friends of the two sisters and of the family, in this c v is beyond expression, and to day it is talked of by everybody and in tense sorrow is shown on every hand. Mr. and Mrs. Curran are among the oldest inhabitants of the valley and known, personally, and by name, to nearly all of our citizens, and the sym pathy of all go out to them in this their great bereavement. The following article in reference to the shocking accident is taken from the Friday evening, June 27th, Everett Record : Mrs. C. A. Betts and sister, Miss Francis Curran, the victims of the chatingdish explosion, are dead. Miss Curran died at 9 and Mrs. Betts at 11:45 last night. They were conscious until death relieved them. Their last hours were soothed by drugs. Otherwise their sufferings would have been terri ble. The deaths were due to shock. It is not believed that they inhaled flames. Mrs Betts died at her own home, and Miss Curran at the home of her parents, where they were removed soou after the accident. Dr. Betts is completely prostrated, lie was at his bride’s bedside when she died. Her father was also present. The dying woman recognized both of them, and did uot seem to be in great agony. The victims were daughters of Mr. and Mrs. John C. Curran, who live in a beautiful home at 2425 Rucker. They came t>Everett from Khiuelauder, Wis.. about fifteen months ago. Mr. Curran was formerly a lumberman and is considered a rich man. lie Itas been investing heavily iu Everett real estate. He owns the rows of cottages ou Rucker just north of California, in one of which the explosion took place. When Mrs. Betts rushed into Mrs. W hai ton’s kitchen, with her entire body enveloped in flames, Mrs. Whar ton and a lady caller, endeavored to extinguish the flames with rugs and sofa pillows. They partly succeeded, but portions of the clothing were sat urated with alcohol and continued to burn in spite of their efforts. Irving L. Lloyde, who lives opposite the Betts home, was the first ntan to the rescue of Mrs. Betts. He was at tracted by the screams of his little daughter, whosa\ Mrs. Betts running towards the Wharton home with bet hair in flames. When he reached the Wharton home Mrs. Betts was about to dart from the door. She was enveloped in flames. The whole doorway seemed to be a mass of fire. Lloyde grabbed her and muffled her in his coat. He beat the tire out with his hands. His left wrist is badly burned. He had -no idea that Frances was burning in the other house. Mrs. Betts screamed: “Francis! Francis! Go for Francis!” Mr. Lloyde, being unacquainted with the family, thought she referred to her husband,and tried to soothe her by say ing he would come soon. She cried for her sister time and again, but it was several minutes before the child was found, burning to death alone. A little child tried to make the exeit ed crowd of women and children un derstand that another woman was burning in the Betts’ residence, but no one paid any attention to him. Frances showed real presence of mind. She threw herself in the bed and attempted to smother the flames. But her clothing was saturated with alcohol. She was perhaps fatally burn ed before she reached the bed, so rapid were the flames in their work. Pieces of Mrs. Betts' flesh still adhere to Lloyd's coat Portions of her body were burned to a eriso. In fact, her feet, were protected by the shoes, were the <mly parts not touched by the flames. "The room was so full of smoke when I arrived to the assistance of Mr.Lloyde that breathing was difficult,” said S. K. Edwards. "We were making candy," said Miss Curran, to one of her girl friends after the accident. "The flames were low and I blew them out —or I thought I did and started to till the burner with alco hol from a bottle. Then the explosion came.” Miss Emma Cstello, who was the first person to reach Miss Curran, said : "Two women passing our house stop ped and screamed, ami we beard them say that they bad seen a woman run ning into Mrs. Wartou’s house with her clothing on tire. Several of ns young folks ran down to Mrs. Wharton’s. 1 When I went to Dr Betts' bcuse, where the nearest 'phone was, to can a doctor, | I saw Frauces sitting on the bed with her elothing in flames. She was moan ing and bolding her handsover her head. "I called to Mrs. Goodman and Mr*. Carver, and they put tb tire out She was so badly burned that I could not tell who she was I tins! thought she was Jessie Broadbent. as Jessie was at the house only a few minutes before,” "Attracted by the cries of two women who w ere passing our bouse, we hast ened to Dr. Betts' house and found Frances on the bed , with her clothing all on fire,” said Mrs. Carver, of 27b0 iuoker avenue. “After we cut off her clothing, we found that the bedding, unu.-'naeath her. was burning "The or 1 } portions of her body that were rr t burned were two small spots on t> ack, where her clothihg fitted tigF ..and her feet, which were pro- by the shoes. Some spots were burned to a crisp. “The little sufferer was very brave. ‘Don’t tell mamma—don’t let her know,’ she said to us several times." The furniture and floor of the kitchen where the explosion occurred, were scorched, and the curtains and portiers of the bedroom were burned. It is a wonder that the house did not burn. The double funeral will take place from the Catholic ‘•hureh tomorrow at 10 o'clock. While Frances lay dying she talked with the fatn il y ...bout the accident, say ing among other things : “It is too bad that Pearl weut out in the air.” Hundreds of stories are on the streets about the devotion for each other that the two women showed while they were slowly dying While Frances was pray ing for Mrs. Betts’, Mrs. Betts’ was urg ing the physicans to go to her sister. Dr. T. B. Curran, brother cf the burned women, was in attendance at the state medical society in Tacoma, accompanied by his mother and sister. I)r. Curran went with the society upon its excHrs-an to Hot Springs yesterday afternoon, leaving his mother and sister in Tacoma. At 9 last night Dr. Wagner of Tacoma was called up by telephone from Everett and informed of the ter rible accident. Dr, A agner called up Hot Springs and informed Dr. Curran and the latter made every effort to se cure a special train to convey him to Eforett. Failing in this, he requested Dr. Wagner to secure a special if pos sible to convey his mother and sister to Everett. Dr. Wagner communicated with the railroad officials there and suc ceeded in securing an ■ ngine and car and with Mrs. Curran and the doctor’s sister they left there alxmt 10 o’clock last night and arrived here at 3 a. m. Dr. Curran came this morning. Mrs. Curran and Miss Curran did not know of the deaths until they arrived in Everett. Dr. Curran had heard of Francis’ death before he reached home. Persons who have handled alcohol a great deal do not understand what caused the explosion They say they uqver heard of one like it. The supposition is that, in pouriug the fluid front the gallon bottle to the lamp, it fell on the flame of the lamp. The flame darted into the bottle, and tlrt explosion followed. Alcohol burns with a dim, bluish blaze, almost invisible. Miss Curran thought she extinguished it before the pqp ring begun, but probably didn’tlook closely enough to be absolutely certain. Alcohol burns are worse than gasoline burns, as they are deeper and hotter. The shock to the body is territic, and the pores of the sk<n are at once closed. The closing of the pores is enough in itself to cause death. The report that Miss Jessie Broadbent was also burned was erroneous. She left the house a few moments before the explosion occurred. NOTES. Mrs. Betts was born in Wausau and made her home here for many years. W. P. Sloan, of the Sloan House, and Patrick Curran, of the town of Easton, are uneles of the sisters, and Mrs. Pat rick Curran is an annt. Mr. Sloan received a letter this noon telling of the fatal accident to his nieces. Mrs. Patrick Curran arrived in Wau sau from Stevens Point this morning, and had heard nothing of the accident until her arrival here. - DR. SECRIST. Pay For Services When Cured.

NEW BOILERS. The Curtis A Yale Cos. is making ex- j tensive improvements at its plant- X<i. ; 1. Eight years ago the boiler capacity! was increased by taking out six old boilers and pi Wing in four larger ones, | which, it was thought, would be snffi- i cien; to meet all requirement#, but since then new machinery has 1/een added, and business has increased so that the present capacity has been found inadequate. The boilers now in ; J lue are crowded to their limit, and in ! winter, difficulty is experienced in #e -1 curing enough steam to successfully run the two engines of a combined 500 | horse power. This difficulty has caused 1 ‘ the company to purchase four addition al b<<ilers of the same -ize and design as the ones now in use. which are 5x16 ft. in size. An addition will be built on the east side of the engine room, and these placed therein, the work, it is ex pected, will be completed by Aug. Ist.

Songs by a volunteer choir were ren dered. (J. D. Jones, always public spirited, summed up the case in the absence of Mr. Pease and made a fitting conclu sion for the interesting service by taking up a voluntary—and making at the same time some very telling points, showing that it was not “a busy bodj*a association.” The whole was surely a bberal education on the subject dis cussed.
