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.
