Miss Gertrude Uthe, Formerly of Glencoe, Killed in That Suburb by Car. Miss Gertrude Uthe, 4646 Woodlawn avenue, Chicago, 70 years old, was struck by a Chicago & Northwestern train at South avenue crossing in Glencoe Wednesday of last week, suffering injuries from which she died a half-hour later as she was being taken to the Evanston hospital. The body was taken to the Jordan undertaking parlors, where a inquest was conducted. It is thought that the inability of Miss Uthe to hear the calls from the flagman caused her to run in front of the train. The body was hurled thirty feet. She was evidently trying to catch a southbound Milwaukee electric car, which was approaching South avenue at the time the train was coming from the south. Miss Uthe is widely known in Glencoe, where she resided until recently. She was a milliner, employed for nearly thirty years wit the D. B. Fisk company of Chicago. She had acquired considerable property in Glencoe and Chicago and was prominent in philanthropic work in the suburban town each Christmas. for the last few months she has been making her home with her niece, Mrs. E. G. Pratt, in Chicago.
