John was a well known citizen and farmer living four miles east and three-fourth miles north of Henderson on the Old Triplett farm, met a tragic death last Sunday afternoon.

It seemed that the heavy rain had washed under the roadway leading from his feed lots leaving a crust of earth like a natural bridge covering a chasm some twelve feet deep. One of his hogs in crossing this slipped off into the cavity and was badly injured. He and his wife had gone out and rescued the pig and Mr. Triplett said he thought he would just dig out that bridge and prevent any more accidents. He went for his spade and Mrs. Triplett returned to the house.

Later she called him and receiving no reply went to look for him and found him at the bottom of the pit with a great quanity of earth on top of him and entirely covering him with the exception of one foot and one hand. This was about 11 o'clock. She hurriedly called help and they extricated him, but he had evidently been dead for some time - probably smothered by the earth.

From all appearances he had started to dig and the bank had suddenly caved precipitating him to the bottom where he struck on his back and an avalanche of earth fell on top of him. It was certainly a most tragic death and a terrible shock to the family and the many friends of Mr. Triplett.

Funeral services were held in the Christian church in Henderson, Tuesday afternoon at 2:30 and burial in the Farm Creek Cemetery. John S. Triplett was thirty-nine years of age and had spent practically his entire life in the vicinity of Henderson where he was respected and honored by all who knew him.
