Down Goes the
Ground to Pieces Benath Engine
In full view of a crowd of fifty
people Sunday afternoon at 3 o'clock
Sylvester Whalon, employed by the L.
& N., met a terrible death when he
was run down and killed by an engine
directly in front of the passenger
Whalon was engaged in shoveling
rubbish from the track betw een the
depot and the Winchester crossing.
He was working near an engine taking
water, and while in a stoopiug posture
another engine, in charge of a hostler,
backed up the track where he was at
Whalon was unconscious of the ap
proach of the locomotive, which was
due to the noise of the engine near
which he was working, and until a
spectator called to him was unaware
qf the approaching danger. Partly
rising he grabbed for the engine in an
effort, to save his life. He was, how
ever, knocked down and dragged a dis
tance of more than one ; hundred feet.
The engine passed over his body which
was horribly mangled.
The hostler in charge of the engine
knew nothing of the accident until the
cries of the eye-witnesses attracted
his attention, and he brought the loco
motive to a stop a short distance
above the Winchester street crossing.
Coroner Rudolph Davis was at once
notified and he held an inquest over
the remains. The jury composed of
S. G. Clay, D. W. Peed, Hiram A.
Galbraith, W. P. Shelton, W. F.
Hedores and J. C. Snvder. returned a
veridct in accordance with the facts.
The mangled remains were removed
to the undertaking establishment of
Mr. George W. Davis, where they
weie prepared for burial and later re
moved to his home on Vine street.
Whalon is survived bj a wife and a
little daughter aged about 7 years.
Yesterday the remains were taken
to Curry, Harrison county, on the 3 :30
p. m. train for burial.

During and following the game at
Maysville Sunday afternoon, between
Paris and Maysville, Manager McKer
nan, as well as other members of the
Paris club, were subjected to the most
ungentlemanly treatment, and insult
after insult was heaped upon them by
a large crowd. Of the occurrence the
Daily Ledger has the following:
"Manager McKernan, uf the Paris
Club, conducted himself in a most
gentlemanly way yesterday, and the
evidence of rowdyism manifested
against him after the game closed was
