Former Clintonian Killed in K. C. Yards

W. H. Carothers returned Friday from Kansas City accompanying the remains of his brother, Thomas who died in the general hospital there Thursday night.

Mr. Carothers was run down by Kansas City Southern engine in the yards that morning and had both legs cut off and his skull fractured. He was sent to the general hospital, where he died a few hours later. A. M. Carothers and brother, W. H., went to Kansas City at noon Thursday and identified the body as that of their brother, Thomas, who they thought was employed some place in the west.

It is believed that Mr. Carothers had returned to Kansas City and was employed near the yards and that he was injured while on his way to work.

He was a single man and leaves two brothers, A. M. and W. H., of this city.
