SON-IN-LAW OF REV. CLARK DIES UNDER TRACTOR
While logging on the divide just south of Glen, Neb., out from Harrison, Neb., last Monday, Henry Metzger, son-in-law of Rev. and Mrs. D. J. Clark of Niobrara county, was killed when the tractor he was driving overturned, crushing him to death beneath the heavy machine. His skull was crushed so badly that he died almost instantly.
From information received in Lusk, Mr. Metzger was dragging a log behind the tractor, and in going up the incline of the hill, the pull on the machine cause it to turn over, pinning Mr. Metzger beneath it.
This is the second tragic death in the Metzger family in recent years. A young son was killed when a large tent pole fell on the boy at the celebration in honor of President Coolidge at the government farm, near Ardmore, over two years ago.
Mr. and Mrs. Metzger have lived on the divide south of Glen, Neb., for the past year. Mrs. Metzger was formerly Miss Edna Clark, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. D. J. Clark, old and highly esteemed citizens of Niobrara county. Rev. and Mrs. Clark formerly lived in Harrison, where Rev. Clark was pastor of the Methodist church.
