WOMEN BUITN-EI) TO DEATH. Remarkable circumstances attended the of two women—Mary Ann Butler, a widow, and M- via Clark, a single wümMl who have been burnt to death in Hull. They, vci-j bag llakers and lived together in a !i}u.ali house. At eight o'clock on Sunday morning P-u tier's mother visited the house, finding lhe eh:nvid body of her daughter in a kneeling position on the floor, wiiiist Clark lay on a eoayii moaning and feebly asking for water. i-re was nothing to show what had caused the tragedy, as there were signs of lire anywhere else in the room. !"1{ lamp stood on the table with the oil vessel intact, although the burner had fauen off. A doctor who was fetched said Butler had. been dead since oaturday midnight. Before j :wing taken to the infirmary, where she shortly afterwards died, Clark murmured, "Lamp," and the police conjecture is that Bntler set herself on fire whilst trying to light the lamp on Saturday night, and that Clark went to her assistance and caught fire as well. Clark must have endured a night of terrible agony and torture. She had struggled to the couch, and lay there unable to call out or to do anything to attract the attention of people living in the lane.
