FIRE NEAR ROCKFORD
Cremates three Children and Their Mother Receives Burns From Which She Later Died-Father and Uncle of the Children Also Severely Burned.
One of the most fatal fires that has occurred in this part of the state for some happened two miles south of Rockford Monday evening about midnight at the home of Henry Frisinger in which three children were cremated and Mrs. Frisinger received burns from which she has since died also her brother. Chas. Chilcote, and her husband were-e seriously burned. The entire family suffering from the flames excepting the two-year-old daughter, Effie, who escaped uninjured, in her mother's arms.
Frisinger lived on the Eicher farm in a large log house, of one story and a small loft, used only as sleeping apartments, and which had one small window, but the only avenue of escape being a narrow stairway. His family consisted of a wife and four children: Pearl, aged 18; Stella, aged 10; George, aged 6 and the babe who escaped as above stated The family was aroused about midnight by the sounds of cracking timbers and roar of fire, which had started in an ash barrel just outside the door in a summer kitchen and burned through the logs at the foot of the stairway leading from the loft, cutting off the only avenue for the three children and their uncle, Mr. Chilcote, who slept upstairs.
Mr. Chilcote was awakened to his peril and started to escape through the window finally making a dash down stairs through the furious flames, inhaling flames and receiving injuries and burns which it was feared at first would prove fatal. His head and shoulders are severely burned but the physician this morning states he will recover as will also Mr. Frisinger.
The father and mother did all in their power to save their children sleeping above but all were cremated. The mother and her two-year-old babe escaped through the blinding snow storm in her night robe and bare-footed to the home of John Dysert, a quarter of a mile away, where she died yesterday morning from the effects of burns and exposure. She will be buried today.
An undertaker from Rockford gathered what he could find of the remains of the children and took them in a wash boiler to Rockford and funeral services were held yesterday, the three children being buried in one casket in the Rockford cemetery.
Mr. Frisinger was also seriously burned in the attempt to save his children. He is a poor man and has practically lost mostly all he had of this world's goods.

TAKES HIS LIFE.
Richard Feigert Takes Deadly Poison, Then Shoots Himself.
Despondent Over Love Affairs the
Cause-Two Homes Saddened
by Rash Act- Dies in Short Time

Death in its most hideous form has again invaded the home of a Van Wert family, the victim being Richard E. Feigert who took his own life about 6:45 o'clock last evening, by drinking a quantity of carbolic acid and firing a shot from a 32-calibre Ivor-Smith revolver into his head. The suicide was committed in the door yard of the Angevine home, 308 North Wall street.
Mr. Feigert, who had been employed as a salesman at the shoe store of Leeson & Stanley, left there at his usual time for start- ing for home, after bidding his associate salesmen, Ora Friesner and Cash Deniston, good-night. He went west on Main street, meeting Miss Eva Angevine, with whom he had been keeping company for two years, who is employed In the office of Dr. R. J. Morgan, and walked home with her. Arriving at the Angevine home, the young couple walked around the north side of the house and engaged in conversation for about half au hour, when Miss Angevine went into the house and Feigert turned to leave. A few moments later, and shortly after Miss Angevine had taken off her wraps, the family was startled by the report of a pistol. Mrs. Angevine and one of the daughters went to the front door, at the west end of the house, and saw young Feigert lying just off the porch step, grasping in his left hand a four-ounce vial and in his right hand a smoking revolver. Mr. Angevine was, at the time the shot was fired, a the pump in the rear of the house, getting a drink of water. Hearing the screams of the women he walked around the north wing of the house, where he came upon Feigert apparently in the death agony. He hastened to the telephone to summon assistance. About the same time Carl Brown, F. V. Wilson and Fred Spayd, who were at the C. N. freight office just across the street and had heard the pistol shot, reached the scene of the tragedy. A few moments later Policeman Harry Hay and Dr. C. A. Files arrived. Feigert was still living, and he was borne into the Angevine home and laid, on a couch. Then came Dr. Fleming, County Coroner, and Dr. R. J, Morgan (continued)
