o'clock Saturday forenoon on High
way No. 8, twelve miles north of
Mr. and Mrs. Orsborn were enroute
from their home in Ewing, Nebraska,
to the home of their son Ray and
family at Lynch, Nebraska. The fatal
accident occurred on the north end of
the first jog west in the highway north
of O’Neill; Mr. Orsborn stated to John
A. Robertson, who arrived at the scene
of the wreck a few minutes before he
passed away, that he thought that the
! road turned to the west instead of to
the east at that point and that he dis
covered the mistake when it was too
late to make the turn; the car plunged
over the embankment and turned over
onto the top pinning Mr. Orsborn be
neath but throwing Mrs. Orsborn
clear of the wreckage. Mr. Orsborn
was injured internally and passed
away a short time after he wa§ re

arm, severe scalp wounds, and a num
ber of wounds on the face; she was
unconscious when found and remained
in the same condition until she died.
She was an invalid; having lost the
use of her right side about five years
ago as the result of a paralytic stroke.
No one saw the accident but Mr.
Orsborn stated that a number of cars
had passed each way before a small;
boy who was out hunting with a small
rifle happened along and stopped a
car. George Harrington and M. R.
Sullivan of this city were among those
who assisted in caring for the victims.
Mr. Orsborn was brought to the Big
lin undertaking parlors where the body
remained until Monday, when it was
taken to Ewing; funeral services were
held from the family home in Ewing
at two o’clock Tuesday afternoon, con
ducted by Rev. M. A. Frazelle, pastor
of the Episcopal church. Burial was

15, 1800. at Amboy, Illinois. They
