Death of L. Standish
Well known Citizen Succumbed Yesterday
Following Accident at the
Larned Stock Yard

A tragic accident that shocked the entire community occurred Tuesday evening when Lawrence Standish, while preparing a carload of horses for shipment at the Larned stockyards, fell and a horse stepped on his abdomen, causing his death yesterday afternoon at 3 o’clock. Immediately after the accident, Mr. Standish was rushed to the Larned hospital, but he sank rapidly, and his death occurred yesterday afternoon as a result of internal injuries.

Mr. Standish has lived in Larned for many years, and was widely known and respected. Mr. Standish, besides having farming interests, has bought and sold horses and mules for many years, and was well known throughout this section of Kansas.

Although definite funeral arrangements have not been made, services will probably be held Friday afternoon, and interment will be in the Larned cemetery. Ernest Standish, Mr. Standish’s son, who has been employed in Denver, Colorado, arrived in Larned this morning after having been notified of his father’s death yesterday, and Mrs. Lawrence Standish’s sister, Mrs. Jen Reister, of Salem, Indiana, will arrive in Larned tonight or tomorrow morning.

Lawrence Standish was born in Washington county, Indiana, on January 30, 1886, and died in Larned May 1, at the age of forty-three years four months and one day. Besides two sons, Forrest of Larned, and Ernest, of Denver, and one daughter, Dora Alice, of Larned, Mr. Standish leaves to mourn his death his widow, Mrs. Lawrence Standish, a sister, Mrs. M. L. Hungate, of Larned, two brothers, Earl and V. O. Standish of Pawnee county, and his mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. M. L. Standish, of Larned.
