Lawrence being larger than Louis, dragged his would be rescuer under in his frantic struggles, both boys came to the surface and Louis tried to pull the panic stricken boy to the shallow water, when they sank again, and Louis managed to free himself from the frenzied grip of his unfortunate companion and raise to the surface for air. He waited for Lawrence to come up again, to catch him but in vain, Lawrence did not come to the surface again. The now thoroughly frightened boys on the bank ran for assistance which they secured, but it was about an hour before the body was got out of the water. Every effort was made to resuscitate him but was of no avail.

Auto Runs Away - Driver Lost Control of High Powered Automobile and It Runs Over Two Children - Eldest Child Killed and Baby Probably Fatally Injured. Father and Mother of Victims Prostrate Driver Suffering from Mental Shock - Result of Speeding - One of the most deplorable and saddest accidents that ever occurred in this city took place about 5:45 Monday evening in East McCook, when a six cylinder, late model automobile, driven by Eddie Lichtenberger, going at a very high rate of speed, swerved from the street, cut through a telephone pole, tore through two heavy wire fences across two yards and stopped within a few feet of a dwelling, crushing the life out of an eleven year old girl and dangerously, injuring her baby sister she was wheeling in a buggy, carrying and pushing them ahead of it through both fences. In its track it tore down and pulled up the big railroad ties used for fence posts, and literally cut out a piece of the telephone pole. Witnesses of the affair were paralyzed with fright at the awfulness of the night, but it all took place so quickly no one could have saved the little ones even had they been close to them, the speed of the car was so great. The children are daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Bert Benjamin. The girl aged eleven years was caring for the baby, eight months old, while her mother was baking and was wheeling it in the baby carriage along the sidewalk, when in front of Charles Fahrenbruck's home his children asked her to come in and she had just entered the gate when the auto struck them, pushing the little ones along and mangling them on in the wove wire fences. When the auto came to a stop, the girl was under the auto. The screams of the children and those who witnessed the tragedy quickly brought many to the aid of the little ones, and a party of tourists going west passing as the crowd begun to hurry to the scene, stopped and backed up. When they saw what had happened they took charge and lifting the auto up and took out the children. The baby was taken by the mother who was attracted to the scene by the screams, and when the little girl was taken out from under the auto the gentlemen recognized her condition and inquired for a hospital taking her in their auto hastened to the Co-operative hospital where she died shortly after without regaining consciousness. The mother and baby also were taken to the hospital shortly afterward by Dr. D.J. Reid, and then the father who has been off work sick was brought up but the little girl had died before he got there. Beside Eddie Lichtenberger who was driving the car, there were Gale Gruh and Griff Knowles, none of whom were injured. The occupants of the car are grief stricken over the unfortunate end of their ride. That evening warrants were sworn out before Justice of the Peace, W.B. Whittaker, and Edward Licthenberger was arrested on a charge of manslaughter. He was taken to the office of the County attorney where on account of his mental condition he was on the security of A. Galusha and James McAdams bound over to appear at hearing set for Tuesday and was taken to his home, where a physician and nurse were called to care for him. Tuesday when the hearing was called a physician's certificate was presented stating the defendant was unable at that time to appear for preliminary hearing. He was placed under $2000 bound to appear September 13, before Justice of the Peace W.B. Whittaker, his mother, Mrs. Lichtenberger and James McAdams signing the bond. Friday 3 September 1915

The body will be brought back to Nebraska and the funeral services will be held from the home at McCook, Thursday. For nearly twenty-five years Mr. Morlan has been attorney for the Burlington railroad at McCook, and until the last ten years he was a leader in republican politics in the state. Mr. Morlan was a self made man. He was born on a farm in Ohio, of Quaker parents. His father was of the stern old Puritan type, frugal and non-progressive.

He found it hard sledding in his early days in Nebraska and when the Burlington was building some of its lines in southwestern Nebraska. Morlan worked on the grade under Contractor John Fitzgerald of Lincoln. He settled at Arapahoe in 1874, and resided there for ten or twelve years. When the Burlington established division headquarters at McCook he moved there.

The family home at McCook is one of the beauty spots of the section. Mr. Morlan was a wealthy man. In recent years he has been greatly interested in farming. He had a big ranch under the ditch and here he planted an orchard that has yielded large returns. He had a market for all of his products in Denver, and took great pleasure in looking after the ranch. He recently refused $50,000 for it. Mr. Morlan was a man of strong character. In recent years he turned his powers of research toward religion and among his friends he has long been known as"Deacon." At one time a great lover of hunting and fishing, he turned from these, being convinced that is was wrong to kill any animate thing. He has been in poor health for a year. Webster S. Morlan was born April 19, 1848, in Crawford county, Ohio, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Morlan. He attended the district school near his home and later the Iowa Lutheran college. In late youth he moved to Cass county, Neb., where he taught two years in the Snyder schoolhouse, south of Plattsmouth. He began practicing law at Crete in 1870. From 1871 to 1874 he was engaged in law at Lowell. In 1874 he moved to Arapahoe, where he resided until 1892. Since that time he had been a McCook resident. While at Lowell he served for some years as clerk of Kearney county. From 1883 to 1887 he was district attorney of Furnas county. He was married January 10, 1874, to Miss Mary Evans of North Platte. In 1900 he was nominated for congressman on the republican ticket but was defeated, although he was beaten by only 361 votes, when the previous republican candidate had been defeated by 1,500.

Took His Own Life - Saturday afternoon, October 30, 1915, one of the saddest events occurred that has happened in this city in years, when Mr. M.J. Mathes of the court house and Methodist church, committed suicide, while evidently suffering from some mental trouble, that is unaccountable to everyone, and to none more so than his family. Always he was to those he met a very genial, happy man, with a smile and friendly greeting whenever and as often as he met anyone. Life to him seemed a joy and everybody his friend. Saturday noon he left the court house in his usual genial way, greeting friends on his way down town. He purchased a small bottle of carbolic acid and went home, spoke to his wife saying"Here goes," and drank the contents of the bottle. Mrs. Mathes had no thought of what he was doing, and when he said it was all over with him she did not realize what he had done.

Killed by a Kick - Tuesday evening about 6 o'clock, Lyle McClain the 12 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. W.B. McClain, was kicked by his pony, one of hoofs of the animal striking him in the face lacerating the skin just below the right eye and crushing the bones of the cheek and brow, the other hoof striking over the left lung and causing hemorrhage of the lungs from which he died about 7:30. Lyle was in the corral with the pony alone and how or why the pony kicked him is not known. He went into the house, where his sister, Hazel, was and told her the pony kicked him in the face and complained of his eye hurting him. She called for their younger brother and just about that time the father drove his oil wagon into the yard and she called him in. He at once telephoned for Dr. D.J. Reid and sent the younger boy for the mother, who was down town. The unfortunate little fellow complained only about his eye hurting him, and when the doctor arrived he cared for that but his condition led the doctor to examine his body, and found he had been struck on the left chest and a more careful examination disclosed the fact of the internal hemorrhage and that nothing could be done as the left lung was too badly crushed, and in a few minutes the little fellow passed away. The force of the kick was so great that it is believed he did not suffer from any great pain, and death came from the hemorrhage before the system had recovered from the numbness caused by the blow received by the kick. The accident is a sad one, and the grief stricken parents have the heartfelt sympathy of everyone in the community. Lyle McClain was born in this city April 12, 1903, and has always lived here. He was a very bright, intelligent, and energetic boy, and was quite a favorite among his schoolmates and companions. He leaves to mourn his tragic death, his parents, two sisters and a younger brother. Friday 5 November 1915

Burned to Death - Wednesday about noon Mrs. Robert Rogers was burned to death in her home, about 8 miles northwest of this city, in Hitchcock county, together with all its contents. The Rogers have a new residence built and were getting ready to move into it. Mr. Rogers and the eldest son were attending a sale and the other son was at school, this leaving Mrs. Rogers alone at home. About noon neighbors saw smoke issuing from the house, which was of sod, and giving the alarm by phone to near neighbors, hastened to the house to give their assistance but found the entire contents had been consumed and the body of the unfortunate lady burned beyond recognition. How the fire originated and why Mrs. Rogers was unable to get out, if she was awake, will probably never be known. The sympathy of everyone is extended to the sorrow stricken family.
