POLITICIAN KILLED BY RACE HORSE

JACKSON. Mich., Feb. 6. — Noris H.
Branch, a prominent merchant of this
city and former member of the Michigan
Legislature, was knocked down and instantly
killed this afternoon by a race
horse on the ice course at Vandercook
Lake. The race, 2:30 pace, had four
horses entered. Three had finished when
Branch, wanting a better view, stepped
on the track directly in the path of
Greenmore, driven by Fred Gowan, and
was killed.
