A deplorable accident happened
to a boy named Pedro Hernandez on
the M. & M. railroad last night
about six miles above Matamoros
It seems that the boy was on the
cowcatcher with a lantern, driving
cattle from the track. The train
moving very slowly oh account of
the water standing on the track;
when he either stepped off or fell,
h and his legs were caught under the
cowcatcher and both of them brok
en just above the knee. The train
was checked at once, in time to pre
vent the wheels of the engine from
running oyer the poor boy, and he
was promptly rescued from beneath
the cowcatcher. He was brought
into the city and conveyed to the
hospital. His injuries are thought
to be very serieus. Should his life,
be saved, he will doubtless be a
helpless cripple for life. Later:
"We learn later that young Hernan
dez died of his injuries late this
morning. It was found necessary
to amputate both legs from the ef
fects of which he died shortly after
the operai ion
