MISS KREJVE HOUSTON,
Fell .Between Cars.
Hickory Valley, Tenn., March
13. S. E. Jones, aged 40 years, a
wealthy planter and mill man of
Hudsonville, Miss., fell between' the
cars of a swiftly running freight
train, one-half mile south of this
place, and was instantly killed at a
late Lour last night. His death was
the deplorable ending of a prolong
ed spree, which lasted since Mon
day of this week. He left home in
an intoxicated condition early Mon
day, and his family heard nothing
from him until they received news
of his death. It seems that he
boarded the north bound passen
ger train at Hudsonville, when he
intended going southward to some
point on a business trip. He be
came rough and boisterous on the
train, swearing and making a gun
play. The conductor put him off
here. He loafed around the depot
and stores, making a display of his
money, of which he had, perhaps, a
hundred dollars. He went south
on the local and spent the remain
der of the day drinking and loafing
about the railroad yards in Grand
Junction. Ho made repeated at
tempts to board departing trains.
He finally stole - onto a train
leaving about midnight, and as the
train came over the grade a half
mile south of this place, fell between
the cars and was literally ground to
a pulp, his body being scattered in
fragments along the track for at
least fifty yards.
He was found early this morning
