Wreck on Rio Grande in
Colorado Kills 21,
Injures 50.
W. C. Kettle, Wife. Son
and Two Daughters
of Ashton Were
Last Friday night at 9:4*1 o’clock
some 22 miles east of Glenwood
Springs, Colo., on the Denver & Rio
Grande road, occurred a disastrous
head end collision between a double
header freight coming east and a pas
senger train going west, resulting in
the death of some 21 persons and the
injuring more or less of some 50
others. Among those killed outright
were W. C. Kettle of Ashton, to
gether with his wife, his dahghters,
Mae and Seta, aged 22 and 18 years,
and his 14-year-old son, Paul, who left
Ashton last Thursday for their new
home at Grand Junction, Colo. It
seems that the engineer of the pas
senger mistook time by his watch
ten minutes, in trying to make a side
track at Dotsero Siding, and the re
sult was that both trains came to
gether with a tremendous impact
which demolished all three engines,
completely telescoped the first three
or four passenger coaches, including
the chair car, in which was the ill
fated family from Ashton, not one of
the occupants of which are said to
have escaped alive. A long distance
telephone message was received by
Claire Kettle, a surviving son, at
Ashton, from the Bee. giving the first
news of the fatal wreck, early Sunday
morning, who immediately started
for the west, but received word from
his brother-in-law, Mr. Henry Jens,
at Grand Junction that he was com
ing with the bodies of the ill-fated
family and would arrive at Ashton
Wednesday evening. The funeral
occurs this (Thursday) morning at
the Catholic church in Ashton. W. C.
Kettle, who met his death in so tragic
a manner, had for years been a pros
perous farmer living some four miles
north of Ashton, but had recently
sold his farm there and purchased
a tine seventeen-acre fruit farm near
Grand Junetion, Colo., and was on
his way to his new home with his
wife and the three unmarried mem
bers of his household, and the news
of their untimely death was a great
shock to their many friends and rela
tives in this county. The surviving
members of the family are, Mr. Claire
Kettle, mail carrier on the route
north from Ashton, and Mrs. Henry
Jens, living at Grand Junction. A
brother. Geo. YV. Kettle, lives at
North Loup. Neb., another brother
lives at Grand Junction, Col., and two
sisters, Mrs. O. L. Way of Ravenna,
and Mrs. L. Butterfield of Arcadia.
A ’phone message from Ashton this
morning says Henry Jens arrived last
evening with the bodies of Mr. and
Mrs. Kettle and two daughters and
son, accompanied by Mr. Kettle’s
brother, Mr. John Kettle of Grand
Junction, Colo., and that the bodies
were this morning lying in state in
the vacant Polski store building and
being viewed by great numbers of
people. The funeral was to take
place at 10 o’clock from St. Francis
Catholic church and the five bodies
laid in one grave.
Mrs. E. C. Kilpatrick of Webster
township received a letter laet Friday
that her sister-in-law. Mrs. Fannie
Bone of Vinton county, Ohio, had
recently undergone an operation for
cencer of the breast and her recovery
was very doubtful. The sympathies
of her many friends are with her.

Work of the Little Winged God
Yesterday Cupid seemed to have
taken possession of County Judge
Pedler's official abode, and no less
than three couples of young people
sought his official aid in launching
them forth upon the matrimonial
seas. The first two couples caught in
the embrace of cupid were Mr. Seth
J. Duncanson and Miss Lottie E.
Sadler, and Mr. Frank S. Sadler and
Miss Loella A. Hyatt, all of Anselmo,
who came in a bunch, each pair
evidently intent on assisting the
other through the trying ordeal. The
third wedding occurred close on the
heels of the double hymeneal cele
bration, and were Mr. Herschel Slier
beck and Miss Etta Crist, both of
Westerville. Custer county, the bride
being accompanied by a stalwart
brother and a dainty little sister, who
were present to witness the most
elegant manner in which Judge Pedler
cements loving hearts in indissoluble
bonds, the judge in this latter in
stance being supported and braced up
by the presence of the editor of the
Northwestern, who was tiius enabled
to advertise him as a little the best
knot tyer extant. In this connection,
we can not refrain from the belief
that under the line art work of
County Judge Pedler. ably assisted by
| the handsome deputy in the office, is
clearly demonstrating to the victims
of Cupid that Loup City is the verit
able Gretna Green of central Nebras
ka. as scarcely a week, or even a few
days, passes that the office is not the
scene of nuptial affairs of those com
ing from adjoining counties and even
| from other states. It Is also evidenced
1 that the worthy county judge's office
i is still a greater Mecca for the pre
| liminarv preparation for like above
| great events, by the frequency of
! swains from a distance securing per
| mits. and not being so much acquaint
: ed with the officials cementing pow ers
depart for other and ministerial
: qualifications, but we have no doubt
; that within a short time all will have
! such intimate acquaintance and his.
tory of the neatness and dispatch that
, the ministers will have to approach
this successful dignitary and ask con
cessions or express a willingness to
form a trust with him in these affairs
of heart. Just the second day pre
ceding. in evidence of what we say
above, a license was granted a young
couple from Valiev county, Mr. Edgar
Houtby and Miss Hazel Hain, but as
they were not on to the splendid
qualifications of His Honor, the cere
mony was held elsewhere.
