Fatal Fall From Horse
Seventeen Year Old Burden Boy Died Saturday Morning.

Harry West, seventeen year old son of Mrs. Sarah Gresham of Burden, died at the the Winfield hospital at 3 o'clock Saturday morning, from injuries received in a fall from a horse Friday afternoon.

His horse slipped and fell, throwing him against a curbing, cutting a deep gash over his right ear fracturing his skull and inflicting internal injuries. He was brought to Winfield as soon as possible, but died early Saturday morning without regaining consciousness.

He is survived by a mother, two brothers and two sisters. Mrs. Shepherd of this city is a sister.

The body was shipped to Burden and the funeral services and burial will be at that place Sunday. (Winfield Courier).
