YOUTH FALLS FROM TRUCK AND MEETS DEATH. Losing his balance when the large motor truck, No. 3, belonging to Schmidt & Ziegler, on which he was riding, turned the intersection of Ver ret and Alix streets, John Robert Du rand, aged fifteen years, fell to the street pavement and was struck by the right hind wheel, which fractured his skull, causing death within a few min utes. The driver of the truck, a ne gro, Henry Martin, twenty years of age. of 1729 Calliope street, was lock ed up in the Eighth Precinct Station on the charge of manslaughter, on which he faced Judge O'Donnell in the Second City Criminal Court Tuesday morning. Martin was engaged in delivering goods to r.tail merchants in Algiere for his employers late Monday after noon. At each stop he made, and be tween stops, boys Jumped on the truck to take a ride. He did not drive them off. At 6:13 o'clock he left the store of Prank Castroglovanni, at Pacific av enue and Alix street, half a square from the Durand boy's home. Durand and a companion. Thomas LeBlanc, aged fifteen years, of 301 Pacific ave nue, joined those on the truck, among them being William Henley, fifteen years, of 201 Pelican avenue, and An thony Lauman of 201 Alix street. Martin drove the truck out Alix street to Verret, where he turned to ward the river. Some of the boys, as well as Martin, say there was a jolt as if a rock or some other obstruction was in the road. Durand, who had a "blank" pistol in his hand, showing it to Henley, with whom he stood in the center of the vehicle, lost his balance and pitched over the side of the truck. One of the boys called out to Martin, a ho immediately stopped the truck and ran to Durand's side. Someone telephoned for the police patrol, and on the advice of Dr. John A. Rupp. who was on the scene soon after the accl dent, Durand was placed in that ve hicle, Martin assisting in doing so. The patrol wagon started for the Durand home. and just as it drove up to the door of the house the boy expired. Young Durand was the son of J. C. Durand and the late Jane Vernon, and was a bright pupil of McDonogh No. 4 school, being a member of the eighth grade. His mother died last Decem ber. He is survived by his father, three brothers, Charles. Walter and Vernon Durand, and three sisters, Mrs. Albert Strehle of Mc!onoghville and Misses Isabel and Julia Durand. The funeral took place at 3:30 p. m. Tuesday from the late residence. 318 Pacific avenue, with services at the Church of the Holy Name of Mary, with interment in St. Bartholomew's cemetery.. He was a member of the St. Joseph's Boys' Society of Algiers. the members of which attended the funeral in a body. A pathetic part of the funeral of young Durand was the immense floral offeriAgs .which were brought by his classmates and the attendance of the members of the sixth, seventh and eighth grades of 'McDonogh No. 4 school in a body. The grades were accompanied by the teachers.
