A SAD ACCIDENT.
Mrs. Carrier Dies from the Effects of Burns Received on Saturday Afternoon at Her Home on Quassaick Avenue.
On Saturday afternoon Mrs. Lottie Carrier, wife of Eber Carrier, was so badly burned while endeavoring to extinguish a fire caused by linseed oil that she died from the effects of the injuries at 1 o'clock Sunday morning. Mrs. Carrier lived on Quassaick Avenue near Woodlawn Cemetery.
Mrs. Carrier's son, a lad of about 10 years, was heating some linseed oil in a can on the kitchen range when it caught fire. A little daughter ran and told her mother, who was sweeping in front of the house.
Mrs. Carrier ran to the kitchen and pushed the flaming can into a coal scuttle, which stood beside the range, and then carried the scuttle to the back yard. The daughter brought water and when the fire in the scuttle was about out, Mrs. Carrier found that her clothing was on fire, having caught from the flames rising from the scuttle while she was carrying it outside. Mrs. Carrier ran into the house and upstairs into a bedroom. Here she seized a bed quilt and wrapped herself in it in an effort to extinguish the flames. Some persons passing heard her cries and entered the house. By this time Mrs. Carrier, though terribly burned, had smothered the flames in her clothing. Some clothing in the room, however, had caught fire and was pretty much consumed. The new fire was quickly put out.
Word was sent for Dr. F.A. Jacobson and upon his arrive he gave no hope for her recovery. The entire surface of the body was burned with the exception of her head. She was concious part of the time and realized that her end was near. Her suffering ended at 1 o'clock Sunday morning. Surviving her are her husband and four childen.
The funeral was held at her late residence, New Windsor, this afternoon at 2 o'clock. The Rev. Dr. F.S. Wilson of St. John's Church, officiated at the house, and at two o'clock services were held at St. Thomas' Church, New Windsor, where the Rev. Mr. Bartholomew, the rector, officiated.
The interment was at Woodlawn under the direction of Mr. Edward Perrott.
