of John Dana, who reported himself us
recently from Lower Cauada, was dis

euth the car from Saint Joseph, huving
held himself upou tho trucks and rested
his feet down, upon tho brake-beam.
Tho brakeman advised him to get out
of his dangerous position, but it appears
that ho failed to take his advice. JIo
held on to his unoomfortublo position

was uotified that he would uot be per
mitted to ride longer iu the truck of the
sleeping car, which was to be switched
off of the Kansas City train nnd attach
ed lo tho out-going Saiut Louis train.
Ho attempted to disengage himself from
the truck, aud, owiug to his cold and
beuutubed condition, was unablo to do bo
quick enough to escape dangur. Just
as ho was crawling across the truck, the
train backed suddenly, and tho heavy
wheels of the sleeping car caught his left
leg, ruuuing over it just below the hip.
Ho died iu a short titno. Ho was a
