JESSE ESTES KILLED BY CARS
Guthrie Young Man Met Death Under Wheels
At Kingsley, Kansas
Jesse Estes, a well known and highly respected young man of Guthrie, was killed by the cars at some hour early yesterday morning at Kingsley, Kas. Particulars regarding the matter are very meager. A telegram reached the city yesterday morning, notifying Sydney W. Smith of Estes' death and nothing since has been ascertained.
Jesse Estes left Guthrie last Saturday night for Colorado points. For the past six months he has been clerking in the Sydney W. Smith grocery at 213 West Harrison avenue, and only resigned his position Saturday evening in order to take the trip. For 18 months prior to his employment with Smith he had clerked in the J.R. Moffat grocery on East Harrison avenue.
Young Estes was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Madison Estes, who reside ten miles northwest of Guthrie. He would have been twenty years old on September 2, next Monday. His parents were in the city last evening, trying to get more details relative to his death.
Both Messrs. Moffat and Smith speak very highly of Jesse Estes, declaring him to be honest and upright in every way. He was very quiet at all times and of a backward disposition, but generally liked and respected.-State Capital
The unfortunate young man's parents live only a few miles southwest of Mulhall and are well known here. Sympathy is extended the sorrowing relatives.
The body of Jesse Estes, who was killed on the railway in Kansas Saturday, was buried in the Mulhall cemetery Tuesday afternoon.

In memory of Jesse Newton, son of Mr. and Mrs. Madison Estes, who was born near Sidney, Manoni county, Iowa, September 2, 1881. He came with his father's family to Oklahoma in 1890, where he lived until his death, which occurred August 26, 1901, aged nineteen year, eleven months, twenty-four days. He was laid to rest in Rose Lawn Cemetery, Mulhall. He has gone to meet his sister who, many years ago joined that company of whom it is said: "They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither the sun light on them nor any heat; for the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall lead them unto living fountains of living water, and God shall wipe away all tears." A large number of friends and companions met with the bereaved family at the cemetery to assist in the last sad rites of him, whom they had known and loved in life.
Memorial services will be held at Stony Point school house Sunday, October 13, 1901. Rev. Paul J. Everett will deliver the sermon.
