KILLED IN AN AUTO ACCIDENT

Nashua, June 1.--W. H. Anderson, a real estate dealer and W. H. Kennedy, a member of the City Carriage company, both prominent in city affairs, were instantly killed Tuesday afternoon when Mr. Anderson, while driving his automobile down a steep hill on Concord road, about three miles from this city, lost control of the car which crashed through the railing of a bridge spanning a small stream.

Both men were caught under the car.

The two men, who were the only occupants of the machine, were returning from Concord when the accident happened.

In some unaccountable manner, Mr. Anderson lost control of the car, while coming down the steep grade, and before he could apply the emergency brakes, it had crashed through the railing of the bridge and toppled into the river. The bodies of the men were recovered shortly after the accident happened.

Mr. Anderson is survived by a widow and three children, while Mr. Kennedy leaves a widow and two children.
