The death of Mrs. D. A. Skinner occurred on Tuesday evening at 7:15 p.m. at her home, northwest of Stockwell, and came in its most horrid fashion. About 11:30 a.m. she was engaged in baking some bread, when a bottle of coal oil fell upon the stove from the range shelf, and an explosion followed and in a second she was ablaze. Her two young sons were in the house, but they were powerless to help her. She threw herself upon the floor of the kitchen and wrapped some loose carpet about her body, partially subduing the flames. Then she ran to an adjoining room and succeeded in removing some of the clothing. The carpets were burned in several rooms, proving that she rushed to all parts of the house. When her husband and two older sons reached the house from the field they found her lying on a couch covered with a quilt. Nearly all of her clothes had been burnt away and she was suffering intensely. Drs. Fickle and Butler were called, but they could do nothing to save her life. She was conscious and able to relate the story of the accident. Mrs. Skinner was the daughter of John A. Baer and was 37 years old. A husband and four sons survive. She was one of the most prominent and most deeply beloved women in Lauramie township. The funeral took place at 4 p.m. yesterday from the Christian church in Stockwell. Rev. F. Mikels, of Frankfort, officiating.
