mounting this was a Rprlng seat on
which Mr. McFadden rode. How tho
accident happened will never be
known, but It Is surmised that in go
ng down into tho ditch, tho lurch
throw Mr. McFadden forward. Tho
top of his head evidently struck the
wagon tongue, for thero was a bad
bruise and on ono side of the head
was another bruise and fracture sup
posed to hnvo resulted from the hoof
of one of the horses. A few minutes
following the accident tho dead body
was found by a farmer going into
town, with tho team standing a short
distance away. The body was taken
Paxton, and tho family notified.
Mr. and Mrs. Mike- McFadden had been
in North Plntte and had lust started
home, and Mrs. Stafford, a daughter
was here at the time. W. R. Maloney
and Rev. Father McDald went to Pax
ton on train No. 17 that evening. The
funeral was held at 10:30 this fore
noon at tho Catholic church in Pax

two, went to the U, S. land office and
entered a claim, which Is now a part of
the McFadden ranch, and taking pos
session of the land gathered around
him a few head of cattle. Ho was a

The Tribune editor was ihtfraately
acquainted with Frank McFadden for
a quarter of a century and he attests
the sterling worth of this man who
though lacking tho polish of some,
had a heart as big as a mountain;
whose word was as good as his bond;
whose friendship was worth while and
whose honesty and Integrity was unquestioned.
