George E. Brown, a well known on
g!ncr of this city, was killed Friday
afternoon when IiIh car ovorturned pin
ning him underneath. The accident
t.'ccuirrcd throe and one-half miles
south of town on what Is kntfwn as
"Dodge hill," a steep and ratlier dan
gerous ascent used to show off tlio
hill climbing power of automobiles. Mr.
Drown owned an 8-cyllnder car, and
desiring to test Its power, drove to the
hill Friday afternoon, and was soon
passing through the state farm about
a: 30. Threo hours later Mrs. Joseph
Schwalgor accompanied by hor son
Paul and sister Miss Anna McLean
while driving In that vicinity noticed
the overturned car and could discern
a man's head and arm protruding.
They hurriedly drove to the stato farm
and a telephone call sent Cor the sher
Ilf and coroner who, with Dr. Dent
and others drove out. They found the
heavy car turned over on its right Bide,
with tho edge resting cn Mr. Brown's
nock. The body was extricated and
after an examination Dr. Dent an
nau,ced that lifo had been extinct for
two or three hours.
As Brown was alone, there was no
cyo witnoss, but the track -. the cur
showed that he had made a partial
ascent, had then started backward,
and upon reaching the foot had struck
rough ground on a reverse ascont and
turned over. The general theory and
tho only pnr.'bublo one is that when
part way up theMitll the engine died,
and in descending the brake did not
work or was not sufficiently strong to
hold the car on so steep an incline.
Tho funeral service was held at the
Methodist church at 2:30 Sunday af
ternoon and the body taken to York,
by Mrs. Drown, tho two sons, and
rtii-hnrtls. Orton. Trexlor,
Murrin, Voselpka and Guyman, who
wore the pall bearers.
Mr. Brown, who was about forty
years of age, had lived in North Platte
for about fifteen years, and was em
ployed as fireman and later as engi
neer on the Union Pacific and was
a member of tho B. of L. B.. He was
popular with acquaintances and a
splendid man in all particulars. His
death was a distinct shock to tho en
tiro community. v
