A Fatal Accident

Odessa Lorene died Monday evening at 9 o’clock at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. C.H. Lorenz, about two miles above Calpella. Her death was particularly sad, resulting as it did from thoughtlessness of a playmate.

At school about three weeks ago she was swinging with a companion and a boy pushed them unexpectedly with such force that both fell out of the swing. The other girl was not injured but Odessa struck on her back and was unconscious several minutes. With returning consciousness she seemed to regain her former strength but grew steadily (sic) weaker and had several severe sinking spells. Dr. Bowles was called in but found the spine so injured that she was past relief and nothing could be done except to allay the intense pain she suffered. -Ukiah (California) Times.

Some of our readers will remember little “Dessie” with her dark curls and bird-like voice, who use to assist in our entertainment and will sympathize with the parents in their bereavement. – Ed.
