Ralston Chandler, 7 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Grover Chandler was instantly killed this morning (Thursday) at about 10:30 when a team ran away and he was thrown off a wagon, striking his head on a post.
Ralston was accompanying his father to Gordon, driving in from the Ross ranch where he was employed. As they were driving along the road a mile east and two miles north of Gordon, an automobile driven by Bert Corbett passed them. Mr. Corbett honked his horn and the team became frightened and went through a fence, where the boy was killed.
