Woman Burned to Death Floydada:

A terrible accident happened to S. R. Beck and family near Mt.Blanco, eighteen miles southeast of Floydada, Dec. 27th.

The family were on their way from Clovis N. M. to Plano, Collin Co., Tx. traveling in a wagon in which was a stove with fire. A line broke and the wagon ran off a bluff, turning over and pinning Mrs. Beck and son, 10 or 11 years of age, beneath the wagon bed. Mrs. Beck was burned to death and the boy is so badly burned he cannot live.
