MEETS DEATH UNDER TRAIN
Ross Clawson was attempting to board a freight train at Lake Village on the New York Central railroad on Tuesday of last week when he fell and one of the cars struck him on the head, crushing his skull. He was a young man with well to do parents at Radnor, Ind. Young Clawson was afflicted with the wanderlust, finding great pleasure in wandering over the country. He was a young man who bore a good reputation in his home town.
Undertaker Sheets was called and prepared the body for burial. A brother living in Chicago was notified and he instructed that the remains [be] taken to Radnor for burial, where they were taken on Thursday morning and funeral services were held at 2 p.m.
