Killed by the Escape of Gas
This morning Frank Thyson Barry, the only son of the late Hon. Henry W. Barry of Mississippi was found lifeless by his mother, Mrs. Kate Thyson Marr, in his room at their home, 1827 9th Street. Asphyxiation, due to the escape of illuminating gas, was the cause. The young man was in his fifteenth year and had a promising future. His standing at school was excellent, besides being held in high esteem by all with whom he came in contact. Drs. Winter and Henderson were summoned, but reached him too late to be of any service.

Singular Case of Asphyxiation
Washington, November 23. Frank T. Barry, aged fifteen, son of the late Hon. H.W. Barry, of Mississippi, was found dead in bed yesterday by his mother, Mrs. Kate Marr. He had rigged a string from his bed to the gas bracket so that he might study while in bed and turn out the gas without leaving the bed when he became sleepy. In his sleep he had involuntarily turned on the gas, which during the night filled the room and asphyxiated him.
