CHARLES RAINEY, a former resident of Watova and well know here, a light car repairer employed by the Missouri Pacific Railway Company in its Coffeyville yards, met a sad and tragic death Monday (April 22) morning a little after nine o'clock.
He was engaged in repairing the safety appliances on a box car, which stood on a siding in the yards, about 100 yards south of the Fourteenth street crossing, when another car was shunted down the track, striking the car that was being repaired with sufficient force to cause it to knock the man down and pass over his prostrate body.
The wheels of the car passed over Rainey’s body just above the waistline, cutting the garments, crushing the flesh and completely disemboweling him. Unconsciousness did not follow for some time. The mangling was so great as to make the case absolutely helpless and medical or surgical aid was powerless. Rainey lived perhaps 40 minutes after the accident occurred.
The boxcar on which Rainey was working was not standing on the regular repair track, it is said, but was standing on a track used in switching. The crew did not know, it is claimed, that any work was being done on the car at the time; mush less did they know the shunting of another car down the track would kill a man. The crew, which shunted the car, was grief stricken, and the scene following the accident was most as pitiful as the tragedy itself.
Charles Rainey was a single man, was about 26 years of age. He leaves an aged mother and a brother to suffer his loss.. Until a year ago when he went to Coffeyville, he lived in Watova. He had many friends here.

LEE E. GALBRAITH, youngest son of Howard H. Galbraith, was instantly killed, a few minutes after 12 o'clock Saturday (June 29) night on the lease of the Fullerton oil Company, in 34-27-13, northwest of Lenapah, in the Territory.
The young man had been working for his father. Lee went to work at 12 o’clock that night. The men had been putting casing in the well and the sand line had become disarranged. It was not in the groove of the pulley at the top of the derrick, when the engine was started, and the sand line lever applied. There was a fearful jerk and the pulley fastening gave way. The pulley shot down from the top of the derrick with tremendous force, as if from the mouth of a cannon. It struck Galbraith on the top of the head, a glancing blow, killing him instantly and inflicting an awful sound.
