RUN OVER BY AN ENGINE.
Man Killed by an
Engine at Hot Springs.
Ed S. Ames , editor and pro
prietor of the Times-Herald at
Hot Springs , S. D. , was killed by
the cars late Saturday night , Aug.
5 , 1906. He had met a black Hills
delegation at the passenger station
and jumped on the train , which
backs down to the freight switch
yards , when Mr. Ames left the
train and started across the main
track toward home. The engine
was backing down the track to get
on the other side of the train ,
when he stepped directly in front
of it and was run over by the ten
der , one truck passing over his
body. The account as given by
the Lead Call in part is as follows :
The engineer succeeded in stooping
the engine within a few feet , but
those few leet were enough to run
Mr Ames down , and to intl ict upon
him injuries which he survived but
two hours. His injuries were horrible.
his body being almost severed in
twain , but despite the awfuluess of
them he survived for about two hours
and during that time dictated to his
wife the disposition of his business
and its future manap-iment. * * *
Mark Knight , secretary of the lodge
in this city , went to the Springs last
night , and was present at the funeral
as the representative of the lodge.
The funeral was held at 2:30 : o'clock
this afternoon , Rev. P. M. Smock of
ficiating , and telling in eloquent
words of the worth of the life which
the deceased had lived. It was a ser
mon which appealed to ail wh-j heard
it. Ed had lived a clean life , was a
good man in every community in
which he had ever lived. The paper
which he edited took from him its
personality , and like himself , was
true , honest and good , and we , of the
newspaper fraternity , knew his worth
and appreciated him as a man , and in
every place in which a paper is pub
lished in the Hills there has been
murmured the prayer "Kequiescat
in peace. "
From a writer in the Times-Her
ald we quote the following :
The writer was awakened from a
slumber Sunday morning , just alter
the clock had struck the hour of
twelve , by a messenger , announcing
that Mr. Ames had been caught un
der the wheels of an engine and was
seriously injured. As we entered the
C. & N. W. waiting room , we beheld
his prostrate form lying on a cot ,
with his face bruised and his body
mangled ; the lustre had gone from
the eye and earthly hope from the
heart. We took the cold and feebly
responsive hand and thought of him
as we had . * ren oim only a few boms
beforr , all life , vigor , ami in the flu * h
of his mature manhood. 'Twas then
we realized how true it in that the
only certain thing about life is its
The funeral services were held on
Monday afternoon. An hour before
the time announced for the services
to begin , the church was packed from
pulpit to sidewalk. During the ser
vices , hundreds of people waited pa
tiently outside to be permitted to get
a last goodbye look upon the face of
their friend. The funeral music was
most fitting. Mrs. Crow , of lead ,
sang ' 'Face to Face , " and Mrs. C. W.
Hargens sang "Thv Will Be Done. "
The I. O. O. F. held their beautitul
ritualistic ceremonies at the grave.
From all over the state is appear
ing extended accounts in the news

variably the editors close by express

SHOOTING AT GORDON.
A tragical shooting aff air occured
in Gordon last Sunday night about
9:30. : Ben Trueblood had taken
Miss Maggie Bylstra to church
and had just returned leaving her
at the hotel door and going across
to Eebbeck's restaurant. Asa
Walls had been going with the girl
for some time and was jealous of
the other boys , and was lying in
the hotel office waiting for their
return , and as the girl entered the
office he arose and spoke to her.
A slight scuffe followed and Walls
pulled a gun and shot her. The
bullet entered the left side just in
front of the collar bone striking
a rib and glancing out making a
wound about 6 inches long. The
girl rushed into the room of Mr.
and Mrs. Abbott saying that Asa
Walls had shot her and he was so
close to her when he fired the shot
that her clothing was all afire ,
which was put out by Mrs. Abbott.
After the shooting Walls stepped
1 out in front of the hotel , looked
j around a little , went around the
south side of the building and dis
appeared. * * * Dr. Dwyer
was summoned to dress the wound
and said had it been half an inch
higher it would have proven fatal.
Also City Marshall Lambert was
aroused but nothing was found of
their man that night. All the
towns around were telegraphed
and ranches phoned to be on the
outloofc for Walls. The next
morning he was arrested at Rush ;
ville by Sheriff Kipplinger. * *
Walls was bound over to the
district court. The Gordon Jour
