CAR KILLS A VETERAN.
SOLDIERS' HOME, Aug 19. -- While
walking on the track of the Los Ange-
les-Pacific Railroad about 8 o'clock
last evening, Charles White, a member
of Co. F of the Home, was struck by
a car and so injured that he died a
few hours later.
The accident occurred about a mile
east of Sawtelle, to which place the
injured man was taken, and conveyed
by ambulance to the Home hospital,
where he expired at about 4 o'clock
Frank Morris of Co. F was a com-
panion in the fatal walk. He says
they had just stepped off the track
that one car might pass, and did not
calculate on one immediately follow-
ing, which ran upon White. Morris
saw White's danger and reached to
clutch him, but too late.
Charles White served in the United
States Navy during the Civil War,
and was admitted to the Home in 1893.
He was a native of New Zealand, and
aged 60. The records state that he was
unmarried and leaves no relative.
