HOPE FOR RECOVERY OF WOMAN, CHILTON MEN DIE
(Special to the Press) Chilton—Hopes for the recovery of Mrs. Ferdinand Paulsen, one of the three persons overcome with gas at a farm near here Monday were held today when she recovered consciousness and spoke to those watching at her bedside.
Mr. Paulsen, 62, and his brother, Henry, 73, died Monday from the effects of the gas, which arose from a coal stove in the kitchen of their home, nearly two miles from here. The dead farmers were found by their hired hand, William Gutz, when he came downstairs to work Monday morning. He entered the gas-filled room just as Henry Paulsen was gasping his last breath. A few feet away on a bed Gutz saw the lifeless body of Ferdinand. Mrs. Paulsen was unconscious in the bed.
The coroner's investigation has shown that Mr. Paulsen arose at 4 a.m. Monday to give medical attention to his wife, who had been removed to her home Sunday evening from Milwaukee where three weeks a go she underwent an operation. He called to his brother, Henry, who was occupying a bedroom upstairs, to aid him. Ferdinand put coal in the stove and then went into the bedroom to sleep a short time before arising for the day. Henry laid down on a cot near the stove. When Mr. Gutz came downstairs a short time later, the fumes from the stove already had taken the lives of the two men. The coroner has found that no inquest would be necessary.
The survivors include two brothers, Julius Paulsen of Chilton, and Rudolph of Davenport, Iowa.
