A Sad Death.

     Our community was startled Monday by the news that J. M. Mills, a farmer living eight miles south of here was killed by the cars Sunday night at Clarks at about 12 : 20. Mr Mills was preparing to ship a car of cattle to the South Omaha market when he made an attempt to catch the front end of the next to the last car and ride down to the stock yards where they were to get his cattle. He missed the step and was dragged about 200 feet, when his foot got caught in the frog of the switch and pulled him under the cars, both cars passing over him. He lived but a short time. The funeral was held Tuesday at 1 o'clock at the M.E. church in this city. The woodmen of the world of which he was a member , had charge of the ceremony. Mr Mills leaves a wife and four children to mourn his loss.
