John B Clary Died From Injuries

John B Clary, a young farmer residing about five miles east of Lisle, this county, died at Saint Mary’s Hospital in Kansas City, Mo, Thursday night, September 12, 1918 at about 8 o’clock as a result of injuries sustained the day previous, when he was run over by a freight train at Merwin, Bates county.

Mr Clary boarded a freight train at Lisle on Thursday morning with the intention of going to Drexel, where he expected to register in the Selective Service Draft for National Army service, being 35 years of age. The train was a “through freight” not stopping at Drexel, so when Merwin was reached and the train slowed down a bit, Mr Clary jumped off, but, in some manner, slipped, the train running over his left leg, below the knee, almost severing it. Dr BL Phillips of Drexel was called, dressed the wounds and sent the young man on the late morning train to Kansas City, where he was placed in Saint Mary’s Hospital, but all efforts of the physicians and surgeons there were futile.

The injured man also suffered severe internal injuries.

The deceased is survived by a wife and four small children, the family being left if distressing circumstances. Mr Clary has always been considered a sort of freak of nature, in that his heart was located on the right, instead of the left side of his anatomy. He had never been strong, physically, but was always able to work and make a living. It is said that Dr William F George, a former widely known Cass County physician, who is now located at San Benito, Tex, several times offered Mr Clary the sum of $1,000,00 for his body, after death, to be used for dissecting purposes.-Cass County Demo 9-19-18
