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.
