WHITE, James - James White, grandson of Mr. and Mrs. James Forgy, met with an accident Saturday at 4 p.m. which resulted in his death about 20 minutes later. As we are informed, Jimmie had hopped a freight train in the yards, grasping a ladder up one end of a car and losing his hold, slipped under the wheels. Both legs were crushed off below the knees. He was carried into the depot and K.C.S. Surgeon, G.A. Hughes, was immediately called and assisted by Dr. Thompson, began first aid relief to the injured boy but had hardly begun when life departed. Mr. Forgy, the grandfather, was present and the boy tried to talk to him just before he died. The body was turned over to the Peoples' Hardware undertakers and prepared for burial. The funeral was conducted from the Presbyterian church Sunday at 2 p.m. by Rev. W.D. Parrish; the Woodmen lodge, of which Jim was a member, having charge of the burial. The boy's mother, Mrs. Ernest Aschach, who resides in Denver, Colo. could not come to the funeral. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. Will Hager, of this place and a half brother and two half sisters, in Denver. Jim was about 21 years old. It is a sad death - and one of the kind that should warn boys of the great dangers attached to hopping trains. The bereaved relatives have the sympathy of all.
