Rc.bc rt Shrader. While Removing
Family to Fort Croak, Loses
A r to and Contents From
A very ur.u i:al incident that led to
the desti uctir.n of an auto-truck be
longing to Robert Shrader, is reported
hom Omaha, where Mr. Shrader is
now located, and engaged in the trans
fer business. It seems that Mr.
Shrader was engaged to move a fam
ily ftorn South Omaha to Fort Crook
and, last Monday, started to make the
trip. One load had been sent on and
Mr. Shrader' loaded the piano and a
number of rugs and other smaller ar
ticles in the auto truck for hauling to
Fc t Crook. It seems there was a
a ox containing reveral Hat irons
placed on the truck, and someone care-le:-sly-th'ew
a box cf matches in this
hox with the flat irons. The jar and
movement of the truck along the road
caused the irons to toss about in the
box and caused the matches to ignite.
Mr. Shrader, who wasr' driving the
truck, did not notice the fire as the
wind was blowing from the direction
he was traveling and prevented the
: moke from attracting his attention.
He noticed, however, that several par
tics residing along the road were try
ing to attract his attention, but
thought they were just waving at him
for a joke and kept right on traveling
alen. Finally when near Fort Crook
a farmer and his wife came rushing
out to the road, and their frantic ges
tures and cries caused Mr. Shrader
to stop, when he discovered that the
rear of the truck with the piano and
other articles was all abke, and just
as he jumper! from the burning truck
the gasoline tank exploded, complet

much to learn that he is at the Pres

go an operation for appendicitis. Mr.
Baker was taken suddenly with the
attack and to secure him relief it was
decided to have him placed in the
