CARL ZEPLIN FATTALLY HURT
Fourth of Family to Meet With a Violent Death
Special Dispatch to the World-Herald.
West Point, Neb., March 10 - While driving cattle this
morning to Schenstock brother's stock yards, Carol Zeplin was
thrown from the horse he was riding and sustained injuries, from
which he died later in the day. Mr. Zeplin, with
others, was crossing the railroad track after the cattle, when in
some manner his horse stumbled over the rails, throwing Zeplin
face forward. He struck one rail with his breast below the
heart. While unconscious he was carried to a neighboring
house, and after thirty minutes of medical stimulation he became
conscious but complaining, and evidently suffering severe internal
pains to which he succumbed at 6 o'clock in the evening.
The deceased was 48 years old. He leaves a widow
and two children. He was the fourth male member of a large
family to meet a violent death. He was for many years and up
to the time of his death Schenstock brothers' g(r)ain
elevator manager, a devout Lutheran and a highly respected man.
Some two months ago he was insured for $2,000.
