It will be remembered that Frost had gone out of the house when the early morning explosion of a heating stove set fire to the frail cottage at Evans. He hurried to it and tried to enter a window to rescue his sister and the children, and fell forward into the blazing room. Shelts had to help him out, and his body was badly burned. It was thought at first he would recover but his injuries proved more extensive and serious than believed. He was taken to the La Grande hospital by the railroad company by which he had been employed.

Mr. Frost is survived by five sisters and his father and one brother. They are: Mrs. F. R. Carey, North Fork, Nebr.; Mrs. E.B. Yarbrough, North Bend; Mrs. R.R. Graves, Clyde, Wash.; Mrs. Oscar Christianson, Salem; Mrs. Bonnie Frost, Snohomish, Wash.; Terrence Frost, North Bend, Ore.
