J. C. Rusmisel Killed at Shenandoah When He Touches Live Wire.

SHENANDOAH. La., Aug. 24 — Picking-up a live wire near the new power plant excavation here, J. C. Rusmisel of Lincoln. Neb., employee of the Iowa-Nebraska Light and Power Company, was electrocuted late Friday.

His widow and son, 5, survive.

E. C. Hlld, safety engineer for the Iowa-Nebraska Light and Power Co., left Lincoln Saturday morning to investigate the accident in which Mr. Rusmisel lost his life. His report had not yet been received afternoon.

Information received by the office was that a magnet wire which Mr. Rusmisel was carrying in his hand broke so that one end of it flipped-up against 110-volt wire, thereby sending the current through his body. He was employed in the construction gang and was helping to clear the grounds where the crew was working when the accident happened.
