“GAS KILLS MAN AND WIFE.

Death Enters the Home of J. A. Rawlins of Ravenswood.

J. A. Rawlins and his wife were killed by illuminating gas in Ravenswood during last night.

They retired as usual last night and when they failed to appear this morning a search was made of the house and the couple were found dead in bed. Gas had been leaking into their sleeping apartments all night from an open gas-jet and the fumes had overcome and then smothered to death the sleeping couple. Efforts were made to revive them, but life had been extinct too long and medical aid was unavailing. The coroner and police were notified of the death and an investigation is being made to-day to disclose as near as possible the circumstances that surrounded the fatality.

Mr. and Mrs. Rawlins were elderly people and in good circumstances. the husband had retired from business. He was in good health except for a slight injury to the leg for which he intended to consult a physician to-day.

Musical Treadmill

TreadmillThe songs on my iPod determine the speed at which I work out on the treadmill and the elliptical machine. I match the beat of the song playing by watching my knees keep time in the mirror. Sort of a HIIT, but Baby Boomer style. :)

Sunday I had a little extra time, so I took notes while on the treadmill to see just how fast my musical guide was moving me. I walked/ran as fast as the beat would allow. I kicked up the incline periodically so my steps would be a little more labored, thus slowing my pace to match the beat when necessary. Here’s my workout results:

  1. I Kissed A Girl by Katy Perry; 3 minutes at a 9%  incline at 4.4 MPH
  2. Midnight Confessions by The Grass Roots; 2.45 minutes at a 10% incline at 4.5 MPH
  3. Some Nights by Fun; 4.36 minutes at a 15% incline at 3.8 MPH
  4. I’m Still Standing by Elton John; 3.04 minutes at a 10% incline at 5 MPH
  5. Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes by Paul Simon; 5.38 minutes at a 14% incline at 4 MPH
  6. Overjoyed by Matchbox Twenty; 3.06 minutes at a 15% incline at 3.2 MPH
  7. Holly Holy by Neil Diamond; 4.41 minutes at a 15% incline at 4 MPH
  8. Ring My Bell by Anita Ward; 8.12 minutes at an 11% incline at 4.4 MPH
  9. Whip It by Devo; 2.39 minutes of panting and very slow walking – I was pooped!
  10. Black Velvet by Alannah Myles; 4.49 minutes at a 15% incline at 3.4 MPH
  11. Brother Love’s Traveling Salvation Show by Neil Diamond; 3.29 minutes at a 14% incline at 4.4 MPH
  12. Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks; 5.28 minutes (bored with this song – didn’t log my results) :(
  13. You Can Call Me Al by Paul Simon; 4.36 minutes at a 12% incline at 4 MPH
  14. Like the Way I Do by Melissa Etheridge; 5.25 minutes at a 15% incline at 3.8 MPH
  15. Roar by Katy Perry;3.44 minutes at a 6% incline at 3 MPH

It took 66 minutes and 13 seconds to reach the four mile marker. That’s 20 minutes longer than it takes me to reach four miles on the elliptical. It’s also 20 minutes longer than I have on a weekday morning. There’s definitely some tweaking to do, but no worries – the beat goes on!
