ROY W.RENFROW KILLED
Roy Renfrew, the oldest son of
Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Renfrew of
White Rock, met a most frightful
death Monday evening, about dusk
within about one-half mile of his
borne. That evening after school
the two sons of Mr. and Mrs. Ren-
frew, Roy and John, saddled their
ponies and went to the John Henry
farm, a mile and a half south of
their home, which their father is
farming, and where he was at the
time, to get some peanuts they had
raised. They had helped to load
some peanuts into a hayrack and
started home, riding along behind
the hayrack, on which was their
father. When a short distance
north of Mr. Osborn's home, John
rode his pony around in front of the
hayrack and mule team and Roy
started around, when his pony com-
menced to run and buck with him.
His father seeing that the horse was
bucking quite hard called to Roy to
hold on tight. This horse running
and bucking frightened the mules
