Woman Dies of Burns

Newkirk, Okla., Dec. 4—Mrs. W. F. Noell of near Newkirk, died yesterday following severe burns which she received when she was trying to build a fire with coal oil. Her husband was also burned in trying to help his parents and he was burned, but is not thought to be in a dangerous condition. Mrs. Noell started to build a fire Monday night. She thought she had a can of coal oil, but by mistake had a can of gasoline, which exploded and set her clothing on fire.

Mrs. Noel in attempting to save her husband again caught fire, and was so seriously burned that she died at 2 o’clock this morning. Mr. Noel, it is said, will recover.
