To Save Her l>ying Husband, But Without AraU.
Shell Lake, Wis., March 3.—News has just reached here of a heroic but unavailing attempt of a wife to save her husband’s life under peculiarly distressing circum-atancc.s.

Before half of their journey had l>een accomplished they were wrap|>cd in a blinding snow-storm and their progress l)ecame slow and difficult. Soon Mr. Hass sank down in the snow, completely exhausted and unable to proceed. His now frantic wife tried in vain to urgo him on, but she was compelled to leave him and seek aid at the nearest house. When she arrived at the house she sought she found a woman alone. It was now about ten o’clock at night, but, taking blankets, the two women started to succor Mr. Hass. He was unconscious when they reached him. and with difticulti' they succeeded in getting him a few rods further toward Shell Lake. But Hass was a largo, fleshy man, and the women were comi>elled to abandon their efforts in his behalf. Wrapping her exhausted husband in blankets and giving him some nourishment, Mrs. Hass sat dowh beside him. while her kind assistant started for her home. Mrs. Haa.s stayed with her husbsnd until he diccl, ab.nit eig'nt o’clock in the morning. When help arrived at the scene the unfortunate cou)>Io was taken home, one nearly a^ lifele.^s as the other. Mr. Hass was seventy years of age, and his faithful wife a few years his junior.
