EARL VAUGHN MEETS DEATH IN ACCIDENT
NINE YEAR OLD SON OF EDWIN VAUGHAN RUN OVER AND FATALLY INJURED
Earl, the nine-year-old son of Ed Vaughan died Monday at about 6:00 o’clock from injuries received when a load of grain passed over his chest a few hours earlier. During the noon hour, he and most of his companions ran out from the schoolyard to ride on the tongue of the trail wagon of a wheat hauler who was passing with a four-horse team. The Vaughan boy fell and the weight of the wagon, which was heavily loaded, passed over his chest. He was mortally injured and died within a few hours. He suffered but little pain, as almost all his body was paralyzed. He was conscious up to the time of his death.
Earl was a bright and likeable boy, studious and industrious and a favorite among his companions.
The news of his death was a severe shock to the relatives and friends, and the expressions of sympathy for the bereaved relatives were universal.
Earl was nine years of age. He was born in Malad and lived here during his short life.
Funeral services over the remains were held at the Second Ward Tabernacle Wednesday afternoon, D. I. Woodland residing. The speakers were President Richards, E.M. Decker, Dr. Richards and Senator Harding, all of whom made appropriate and impressive remarks. Two selections by a quartet and a solo by Arthur Castleton were rendered. The prayers were offered by George Stuart and John Mifflin.
There was a large attendance and many beautiful floral offerings.
