Ed. Bogar was killed by an automobile driven by M.E. Walker, of Kendrick, at the Red Cross picnic at the Steel school house on Texas Ridge, yesterday. This word came to The Star-Mirror this evening by telephone from Kendrick. Mr. Bogar became excited, it appears, and stepped backward directly in front of the car, which knocked him down and the wheels passed over his body. He was taken to Kendrick and died last night. It is said no blame attaches to Mr. Walker. Bogar is said to have a wife and three children.
