Soo Lawyer Near Death After Wife Fatally Burned

SAULT STE. MARIE, Feb. 5—E.S.B. Sutton, Sault attorney, continued seriously ill with heart disease today while plans were made for his wife’s funeral services this afternoon. Mrs. Sutton, 72, died Saturday of burns when her night clothes caught fire from a heater in the bathroom.

Mr. Sutton, who has practiced law in the Sault since 1879, has been critically ill for the last two months. Friday morning his wife rushed into his room, her night clothes in flames. He leaped from his bed and started to smother the flames with a blanket and then fell to the floor with a heart attack. He recovered later to extinguish the flames and call a physician.

Today close friends said Mr. Sutton, while seriously ill, was withstanding the shock well.

Mrs. Sutton will be buried in the Sault. She was a lifelong resident of this city, born here December 30, 1861. She was one of the last descendants of Peter B. Barbeau, her grandfather, who came here as a representative of a fur trading company in 1826.

Old Timer Is Recent Guest At Irvington

Irvington, Oct. 17.—Mr. and Mrs. Clarence Brown, Los Angeles, who, en route to Minneapolis, recently visited the H.E. Rists at Algona, also drove through this vicinity.  Clarence is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Zelora Brown, who lived here many years ago.  The Browns lived in a house which then stood, with many other buildings, east of the tracks in a field farmed by Richard Leigh. Zelora, now a resident of Minneapolis, also ran a store here.  Mrs. Zelora Brown is a sister of the late Dr. J.R. Armstrong, who is so well remembered and often recalled by the older residents here.  Doctor Armstrong, besides being the sole physician here at that time, also taught school and was superintendent of the Sunday school.  The late J.B. Robison was one of his pupils. Doctor Armstrong built and lived in the house now occupied by the Richard Leighs.  Later they moved to the property now owned by the U.B. Frankl’s, where the doctor died.  Mr. Brown said things did not look familiar; so many buildings have either been moved, torn down, or remodeled.
