    • Mrs. E. B. Brown Found Dead

      On Monday morning, January 8th, Mrs. E. B. Brown, an aged and respected resident of Earlville, was found dead at her home in the east part of town. The aged lady had lived alone for many year and the neighbors became alarmed on that morning on not seeing her about her home. On going to the house they forced an entrance and on going to her bedroom they found the room completely filled with smoke. The bed clothes, as soon as the air from the outer rooms was let in, started to blaze. The aged lady was found dead in her bed. It had been Mrs. Brown;s custom during the cold weather to retire early in the evening and she had heated a brick and placed it in bed. It is supposed that during the night the hot brick ignited the bed clothing and the room not being ventilated the smoke of the burning cloth filled the room. The smoke was so dense at the time of the neighbors' inquiry, that they were compelled to break a window in order to get ventilation. The fire presumably smouldered during the night and it is miraculous that the house was not burned as the foot board of the bed was burned through and the walls of the room were scorched.
