AUTOMOBILE GOES OVER EMBANKMENT. Mrs. John M. Harrell Killed, This place does not seem to be intended for automobiles, with the Kentling machine wrecked by a train a few weeks ago and the fine new touring car of ex-trustee John M. Harrell wrecked, Tuesday, on the hill just west of the Harrodsburg depot, killing Mrs. Harrell and injuring several others. Mr. Harrell and wife, Fred and Lillie Deckard and Lora Johnson, were returning from the Anderson grave yard, near Springville, where they had been decorating graves of relatives, and when they reached the hill between Ray Taylor's and the depot, Mr. Harrell, who was driving, attempted to change gears and in his hurry grabbed the reverse lever which caused the car to back, while the engine was going at such speed, it backed over an embankment nearly 100 feet high, and rolled to the bottom where it lodged against a tree. The car was new give passenger Reo; Mr. Harrell had just purchased a short time ago and was having good success running it, until just a slight mistake at a critical time, caused it to go over the embankment. The car turned over and over, four times lighting right side up at times, and with the engines going would plow its way on down until a tree lodged it. Miss Johnson, who was sitting in the middle, told Mrs. Harrell they had better jump out and she raised to open the door when the car began rolling, and it is supposed the side of the car crushed her skull. All were thrown out except Miss Johnson and she said that when the car would turn the top would catch her and throw her back in again where she remained unhurt, except for a few bruises on her right arm. She could not get out and Mr. Harrell and Fred Deckard ran to release her. Mr. Harrell took hold of the car and lifted it while Fred cut some straps to take her out. It required the efforts of two strong men afterwards to lift what Mr. Harrell did. Lillie Deckard wandered around and walked to the depot before she came to her senses, she asked the agent where she had been and what was the matter with her, it was found afterwards that the muscles of her right arm Dainty Wash Fabrics For Summer Frocks embroidery and lace Jacket suits reduced Campbell & Co.

Tourner and Gardner, of Bloomington, were summoned and did everything known to medical skill to save her, but she never regained consciousness and died at 3:30 Wednesday morning. Fred Deckard was badly, bruised and scratched up but not seriously injured. Mr. Harrell was not hurt much, but the shock has greatly effected his heart as he was already slightly afflicted with heart trouble and with the loss of his wife, which is a terrible blow to him, he is almost a physical wreck. The funeral of Mrs. Harrell, was held yesterday afternoon at 2 o'clock, at the residence in charge of Rev. Quincy short and undertaker Harrell, with interrment at the Harrodsburg cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Harrell were married about 10 years ago, they had no children. She was 40 years of age and a member of the Christian church.
