Popular Cadiz Young Man Is Picked Up Dead When Car Leaves Road
Companion in Coupe with him Escapes With Very Minor Injuries Sunday
R. EMMETT MITCHELL, 23, Cadiz, son of Mr and Mrs. W. King Mitchell, was killed instantly when the car which he
was driving left the road and turned over about four miles from Eddyville on the Eddyville and Princeton road, about

Dear sister fell asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep,
A From which none every wakes to weep.
A calm and undisturbed repose,
Unbroken by the worst of foes.
Tis hard to break the tender cord,
When love has bound the heart
Tis hard so hard to speak the words
We must forever part.
Dearest loved one we must lay thee
In the peaceful grave's embrace
But thy memory will be cherished
Til we see thy heavenly face.
We have lost our darling sister,
She has bid us all adieu
She has gone to live in heaven,
And her treasure lost to view
Dearest sister thee has left us
And our loss we deeply feel
But tis God who has bereft us.
He can all our sorrows heal.
Yet again we hope to meet her,
When the day of life is fled.
When in heaven with joy to greet thee.
Where no farewell tear is shed
Written by her brother,

Accident Fatal To Lofton Mitchell
Popular Young Man Dies As Result Of Automobile Wreck Sunday
Five Men Injured When Ford And Truck Collide On Highway West of Cadiz
Lofton Mitchell, twenty three and son of Mr. Oscar Mitchell, who reside just east of the city limits of Cadiz, died Tuesday afternoon at 4:48 at the family home following serious injuries sustained in an automobile accident last Sunday afternoon about 2:30, three miles west of Cadiz on the Jefferson Davis Highway.
Young Mitchell was twenty three years of age last October and a popular young man with many friends. He was a mechanic and for some time had been employed in the shop of Earl Stalons in this city.
The father and mother, two sisters and three brothers, are among the surviving relatives.
Funeral services, conducted by Rev. John t. Cunningham of Princeton, a life long friend of the family was held at the family home yesterday afternoon at one o'clock and the remains were taken to Blue Spring in Caldwell county for burial.
The young man was born near Blue Spring, and grew to young manhood in Caldwell county. Some years ago he came to Cadiz with the family and had resided here since.
His untimely death and the tragic events connected with it are much regretted by all.
The circumstances which cost the young man his live and which caused his companions in the car to receive painful injuries took place Sunday afternoon about 2:30 o'clock.
Young Mitchell was in a Ford car with Dennis Hendrick, Raymond Fuller, Gorman Mitchell and John Gardner, colored, all of Cadiz, and they were coming in the direction of Cadiz. Hendrick was driving the car, Lofton Mitchell being in the front seat with him, and they were traveling at a rather rapid rate of speed.
Near the home of Carey Vinson they caught up with a truck being driven by Louis Timmons, also of Cadiz. In the truck with Mr. Timmons were his wife and four children, his two sisters, Misses Irene and Commie Timmons, of Christian county and his brother in law, James S. Thomas, wife and two children. They had attended preaching at Oak Grove Sunday, and were on their way to visit another sister Mrs. Ellis Stallons, and family on Blue Spring.
Mr. Timmons says that the signal was given that he intended to turn from the highway into the side road between the Crute and Vinson homes going to Blue Spring. Mr. Hendrick says that he sounded his horn for the right of way and that when Mr. Timmons turned to the right side of the road to make his turn into the side road he thought he was giving the Ford the right of way.
However, as the truck was making the turn into the side road going to Blue Spring it collided with the Ford driven by Mr. Hendrick. The right wheel of the Ford struck the truck and the left wheel of the Ford was broken off the axle and the car turned over twice. All the occupants were pinned under the car, and Mr. Timmons undertook to remove the men from the wreck. Others soon arrived on the scene, and when the men were gotten from under the wreck it was discovered that Lofton Mitchell was seriously hurt, and for awhile it was thought he was dead.
A telephone message was hurried to Cadiz and the ambulance soon responded, and the young man was brought to his home near Cadiz. It was discovered that his spine had been seriously injured in the wreck and his condition was seen to be critical. There were times that it was thought he might be better, but these proved to be temporary, and he began to sink Tuesday morning, and death came late in the afternoon.
John Gardner, the colored man, sustained a broken collar bone, which was the most serious injury sustained by any of the other occupants of the car. Gorman Mitchell sustained scratches and bruises about the head and back. Dennis Hendrick sustained a black eye, and his body was bruised in several places. Young Fuller sustained flesh injuries on the hip and back. In addition to his collar bone being broken Gardner also bruised about the arm, head and leg.
None of the occupants of the truck were hurt except Mrs. James Thompson, who under the excitement of the moment, became hysterical and either jumped or fell from the truck and sustained scratches about the body and arms.
The Ford owned by young Hendrick and his brother Garland Hendrick, was completely demolished, but the truck was not damaged but very little.
