FARMER TRAMPED BY HORSE DIES
Wife of Clarence Carter Sees Tragic Accident As She Enters Barn
Injuries sustained when he was struck down and trampled by his horse while attempting to readjust its bridle last Thursday, proved fatal yesterday to Clarence Carter, 42, World War veteran and farmer residing about 7 1/2 miles northeast of Vancouver who passed away at, the Veterans hospital in Portland.
The rancher was driving the hay rack on his, farm on which he and his family had moved but three weeks before, when the bridle slipped from .the head of his horse. As he raised his band to readjust it. the horse, who had been mistreated before his present owner came into possession, apparently thought he was going to be struck and reared on his hind legs, knocking his master down, breaking one of his legs, and causing internal injuries,
Mrs. Carter, who had just come from the house with a coot drink for her husband, saw the accident and rushed to his assistance. His sister, Mrs. E. H. Smith was called, and together they took him to St. Joseph's hospital. Later he was removed to the Veterans hospital. At first it was believed the broken leg was the only injury but when the injured man's condition failed to improve it became apparent he was also hurt internally.
Mr. Carter was born in Iowa but came to Vancouver about 30 years ago. Although he had lived in Tillamook, Oregon, at different times, the greater part of that time had been spent in and around Vancouver and Ellsworth. During the World war he served in the spruce division in Vancouver. In recent years until moving to his farm, he worked at the carpentry trade.
Mr. Carter was a member of the American Legion, the Loyal Order of the Moose and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.
Surviving are his widow, Nita; a daughter, Donna LaRee; a sister, Mrs. E. H. Smith of Vancouver; five brothers, E. F. Carter of Orchards, Fred, Salmon Creek, Harry of Vancouver, George of Omaha, Neb., and Jack of Gaston, Oregon.
The body is at Pearson's undertaking parlors in Portland pending definite arrangements. It is expected services will be held from the parlor Saturday and internment will follow in Tillamook cemetery according to his sister.
