ROLLER SKATING VICTIM DEAD.

Chester Caughey Fatally Injured by
Fall on Sidewalk.

Chester Caughey, the 13-year-old boy, whose back was broken in a roller skate fall on the sidewalk last Thursday, died yesterday at his parents' home, 3944 Terrace street. The doctors called his trouble spinal meningitis, but ever since the accident it has been commonly understood that the little fellow's back was broken. Much of the time the boy was delirious with pain.

No one saw the accident and the victim was never sufficiently free from distress to describe it himself. The father, Robert C. Caughey, is manager of the Eagle Manufacturing Company.

Within a week of young Caughey's accident three other young people in the same neighborhood suffered serious bone fractures from falls taken in roller skating on sidewalks.
