.ROCK ISLAND, ILL.
George I'oell of Grand 1-slauJ, Neb.,
the liremau oil the Si. Joseph and
Graud Island railroad who recently re
ceived a letter from President Roose
velt notifying him that he had been
awarded a gold medal for saving the
lifo of a child, thereby nearly losing his
own, has told in his own words the sto
ry of his deed of heroism. Many of the
details of his heroic act were recently
toid for the lirst time, says a special
dispatch from Grand Island, Neb., to
the Chicago Tribune.
Mr. Poell lives with his wife and her
mother in a modest little home pur
chased wholly from the proceeds of the
sale of his photograph and of the child
ti rescued. The photographs were sold
by the rescued child's father.
The ieop!e of the couuty also showed
their admiration for Mr. Poell by elect
ing him couuty clerk, an office which
paj-s $1,500 a year. Mr. Poell was un
known in the (Hail) county, and his sole
campaign issue was his rescue of the
Son of MaNwn Aent.
1'ne cbfid whose life was saved by
Mr. Poell in so daring n manner was
Paul Ussary. the two-and-a-lialf-year-
old son of John Ussary, the station
agent at Powell, Neb. On June 2 last
the child was seen on the track abend
of a train which was running at a rate
of thirty miles nn hour. The train
could not be stopped In time, and Mr.
Poell climbed out of ifl cab. crawled to
the locomotive pilot, snatched the 'child
from certain deatli and threw it to one
s!lc of the track. In doing so he slip
ped and fell. He was caught cither un
der the pilot or the wheel of the engine
truck and wa. dragged 30O feet, bump
ing oAer the ends of the ties. His right
foot was torn off at the ankle, both
arms were broken and his flesh fright
fully torn and bruised.
I'oeli was conscious when picked up,
but bis first thought eenied to be for
the child. At his request Brakeman
Everhart immediately ran back 1C0
feet from where the fireman lay to find
the child. lie had only a slight contu
sion on the head and almost Immetli-1
ateiy began to cry. lie was quicuiy re
stored to his mother.
Talking the other day of his thrilling
experience, Mr. Poell ealled attention
to the fact that In every account so
far as published It had been stated that
he thought of his little brother at home
ot the time.
"I don't know where the newspapers
got that." said Mr. Poell. "Though 1
have a little brother at the old home in
Hanover, I just dftln't happen to think
of him. In fact, there wasn't much
time to think. We were rounding a
curve at a pretty good rate and on a
down grade with a heavy train. Sud
denly the engineer put on the emergen
cy brake. I looked out ahead. There
was a child on the trck. . The little
fellow seemed to have heard us and In
his childish way appeared to turn part
ly around and then toddle off straight
ahead of the engine, &s if to run away
from us and beat us.
"The engineer could not leave his
post. I saw at once that we could not
stop the train In time. I can still see
those little blond curls bobbing up and
down. Something told me I must run
out, get on the pilot and sweep him off
the track, and well, that was the only
thing there wnj to do. In some way I
slipped, got caught Just below the cyl
inder, was dragged quite a distance
and then dropped."
Proud of Hunband.
JlrsI Poell 'Is'as proud of her husband
as -she well may be. She shows the
shoe which Mr. Toell had on the mlss
LDS JtoLat the time andxplalQedihe
iTg."if of admiration beaming in "ncr
"Mrs. I'ssary has the handkerchief
and cap George wore at the' time, but
fhe refused to give them up. saying she
would not part with them for the
world." Mr. and Mrs. Ussary were in
Grand Island to visit the Poell family
as soon as Mr. Poell had sufficiently
recovered, and, :s may le imagined,
the strongest ties of friendship have
been formed between the families. Mr.
Ussary. a man of humble means, has
done all that he could do to akl the
family of his benefactor.
The medal is given to Mr. Poell by
the interstate commerce commission
and is the first to be awarded under
the recent act of congress authorizing
the giving of medals for the saving of
life on railroad trains or tracks.

SIEGE CANNON HERE
Product of Rock Island Arsenal Prom
ises to Do Away With Re
Says a Washington dispatch: A new
type of siege gun has been completed
by the ordnance department at the
Rock Island arsenal and has been
shipped to the Sandy Hook proving
grounds for a test. The new weapon
throws a (50-pound projectile. This is
five pounds heavier than the projec
tile now thrown from the five-inch
siege guns, which are to be replaced
with the new model if the gun proves
The chief characteristic of the new
gun is its long recoil. It is said that
this gives a steady carriage and that
the carriage will not jump when thvs
gun is fired, as is the case with the
gun now in use. This will permit of .
more rapid fire, as it will not be neces
sary to place the carriage in position
after each shot.
