Mrs. Jas. Cordell, who resides two
miles ncrthwest of Fossil, met with a
serious accident at an early hour last
Friday morning. A lamp had been left
burning in the bedroom and Mrs. Cor
dell awoke at about 2 o'clock a. m., to
diecover the lamp blazing up in an
alarming manner as though about to
explode. The lady hastily arose and
attempted to carry the lamp to the
front door to through it out, but before
she could reach the door the lamp ex
ploded and her clothing was instantly
in flames. The fire was quickly ex
tinguished, but not until one of Mrs.
Cordell'a arms was eeverely burned,
from the hand to the elbow. Medical
aid was hastily summoned from Condon
and the burns were dressed, and at last
accounts the patient waB getting along
as well as could be expected.

MRS. FRITZ DEAD.
PASSES AWAY SUDDENLY.
While Attenplnfr Services at tbo Cath
llc Churcli. . She Falls Victim
to Hears Disease.
The grim hand of death seized one of
most respected townswomen this
morning, and on account of its unex
pected coming, the case was rendered
all the more sad. Mrs. Sarah A. Fritz,
an old resident of this city, died of
heart disease while attending services in
the Catholic church at 8 o'clock this
morning, i In her the cicy loses one,
woo bv uer life and example, has won
the respect of all, while the state is left
to mourn the loss of one its pioneers.
Mrs. Fritz was born m Rochester,
New York, about 58 years ago. When
ten years of age she came across the
plains with the family of Joseph Brant,
of Vancouver, and while in that town
met Jacob Fritz, who at the time was
serving in the United States Army.
Their courtship terminated in their be
ing married in 1856 when she was about
14 years old. From Vancouver they
went to Walla Walla, Wash., and later
moved to The Dalles, and since that
time have made this city their home.
About seven months ago her husband,
Jacob Fritz, died, and scarcely had the
family recovered from the blow wtien
they were stricken by another calamity
even sadder than the above the loss of
good and kind mother.
The married life of Mr. and Mrs.
Fritz was blessed with ten children, of
whom seven survive. 'Louis and John
of this place, Charles, of Boise City,
Idaho, Mrs. Agnes Baldwin, of Portland,
Mrs. Flaschutz of Denver and Mrs.
Knight and Miss Mary Fritz of The
Ir. and Mrs. Fritz figured among the
old poineere of The Dalles, and on ac
count of the length of time they have
lived here, they seemed like landmarks
unseparably connected with the history
of the city.
For the last ten years she has been
subject to heart disease, and her physi
cian, Dr. Holhster, informs us that the
end was not unexpected as she was sub
ject to fainting spells as a result of the
malady which were likely to cairy her
away at any time.
Her death seemed to ba almost pain
less and although there were several
people in the church at the timer of her
death, she had almost passed away be
fore they knew that anything was
The date of the funeral cannot be set
until the different members of the
family are heard from, but in all proba
bility it" will take place Monday the 5th.
