crashed to an instantaneous death when his automobile
went over a thirty-foot embankment not far from his

men two miles south of Luther. Coming down a steep
hill, the car became uncontrollable and went over the
bank. His neck was broken and he was badly bruised
about the face amd body. The car was badly damaged.

A number of high school boys withnessed the accident
and immediately gave the alarm. It is said that the
men whom Yelldell drove out in the car had been
drinking, and it is alleged that Yelldell imbibed
freely on the trip. A bottle of whiskey is said to
have been found in his pocket when the body was
picked up.
