Met A Horrible Death A letter received by the Misses Owens of this place, from relatives at Everett, State of Washington, tells a sad story of the death of their elder sister, Mrs. E. J. Fetterling, formerly of this county, by an accident. The lady was sitting on the night of June 7th at a table, which had a loose leg that caused it to be unsteady. Upon the table a coal oil lamp was sitting and by the light of it she was reading her bible, being a devout Christian and a Member of the Methodist Church. The Table tilted upsetting the lamp igniting the oil, which was thrown over her person and set fire to her clothing. In a short time the house was in flames and it was with great difficulty that Mrs. F. was Rescued. This was at 10 o'clock p.m. and three hours after the catastrophe, Mrs. F. died from her injuries in great agony. Her Husband died from heart disease about one year ago, leaving two children, a Son William and a Daughter, Mrs. Morris, Living at Seattle. The son is married and lives at Everett, Washington.
