Former county commissioner succumbs today

Ralph Stocking, 80, of 1309 North Blaine, a former Sumner County commissioner, died early today in a local hospital where he had been only a short time.

He was born May 17, 1882 at Mayfield. A number of years ago he operated the Merchant’s Delivery Service in Wellington. He was engaged in farming for many years, living just west of Wellington on Highway 160 before moving to Wellington about 10 years ago. He served as a county commissioner of the first district. He was also engaged in the insurance business. He was a member of the First Methodist church.

Survivors include his wife, Dora M., of the home; two sons, Edwin Stocking, Palo Alto, Calf., a brother, John L. Stocking, Kansas City, Mo., and six grandchildren.

Funeral services will be held at the First Methodist Church with burial in Prairie Lawn cemetery. Arrangements were incomplete today and will be announced later by the Fisher Mortuary where friends may call.

R. STOCKING INJURED

Roderick Stocking of Mayfield, father of Ralph Stocking of this city, is suffering from an accident which might have proved very serious.  He and his son Porter are threshing at the Fred Stayton farm near Mayfield and their machine is run by an electric motor.

In some unaccountable manner Mr. Stocking took hold of a bunch of live wires with a current of 13,200 Volts.  Ralph says that the situation is similar to that described by one of the Chautauqua lecturers last summer when he said that a great deal of electricity has just the same effect as a small amount; that is the person will be stunned but not seriously injured.

Mr. Stocking was put to bed, and while he is still unable to be up today, it is thought that he will suffer no serious result.  A peculiar circumstance of the affair is that a tack in one of his shoes burnt a hole in his heel.
