James Moyer, a resident of Gothen
burg, but who hod spont the greater of
the summer and fall cutting nnd baling
hay on land owned by him near Key
stone, was instantly killod in tho west
yards about 8:30 Friday ovening. Moyer
and nn acquaintance named Hudson
took passage on freight No. G3 at Her
shoy for tho purpose of coming to North
Platte. The train arrived here shortly
after eight o'clock and pulled down tho
main line past the east switches of the
west yard, and began backing in on the
sidetrnck. Moysr nnd Hudson were
seated in the caboose, and tho conduc
tor romarked to thorn that they had
better tret oh" as tho train would not
run down to the dopof. Both men went
out on 'the rear platform of the caboose,
Moyer descending the north sido steps
and Hudson tho south sido. Tho Intter
concluded to tret olT on tho same side as
sido. As he dismounted Moyer was
not in sight and Hudson concluded that
he, Moyer, had preceded him down the
track. Ho walked rapidly, but failed
to find him, and after reaching town
visited several rooming houses in search
of Mpyer but of no avail. Tho finding of
a mutilated body by an employe of the
company at 11:30 proved tho sequel to
Moyer's sudden disappearance, tho
mutilation being such as to to make the
body, unrecognizablo. Just how Moyer
fell beneath the wheels will never bo
known. He woro a heavy fur overcoat
nnd this may have hampered or tripped
him as he attempted to alight, or ho
may have come in contact with a switch
stand as he jumped, nnd was thrown
back under tho train. The ontire train
