Chicago, April 13.

A special to the Chronicle from Belleville, Ill., says: A skipping-rope contest has caused the death of 11 year old Freda POIGNEE and occasioned the serious illness of two other children. There was great rivalry among the three children and others of the school they attended as to who could jump the rope the most. The attending physician said the cause of the death of Freda was heart disease, caused by too violent exercise.
