ACCIDENT ENDS FATAL—TENSLEEP. OLD-TIMER IN
Last Saturday a sad accident happened on the Denny ranch located near Tensleep, Benjamin Denny went into one of the fields with a binder to cut grain and while oiling the machine his horses became frightened and ran away. Denny at the time was down in front of the machine and it is supposed the bull wheel in the center of the binder, which carries all the weight, ran over him crushing his stomach and breaking every rib in his body. Dr. Gray was summoned and arrived just as he was passing away. The funeral was held on Monday afternoon, the services being conducted by Rev. Jan J. LeFebre in the church at that place. The members of Worland Lodge I. O. O. F. then taking charge and holding their ceremony at the grave and laid the remains tenderly at rest. A large number of friends and relatives were present to pay their last respects to the departed. Rev. LeFebre is also a member of the order bringing out all the good that can be obtained in the lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. The brothers who attended from Worland were: Dr. W. O. Gray.
