Pleasant Valley that he failed to co.i
shier the train order. He was closeiy
questioned by Jthe attorneys and the
coroner, and when questions were ivit
to him he broke clown and wept. The
morning session of the inquest tod.iv
was almost-entirely devoted to hearing
Mr. Larson's testimony.
The jury will complete its investiga
tion this afternoon and return a ve
