One of those deplorable accidents
wbich deprive a happy home of husband
and father and end the lives of men who
were bnt a moment before full of light
and life happened early this morning in
the Rock Island yards. Tbe victim this
time was Bert Smith, of Rock Ialan d,
rear brakeman on the first section of
freight train number 45
Tne train pulled into Muscatine from
the east at ibcut 4 o'clock and was at
once run in the lower yards for switching
purpotes. As Dear as can be learned
Smith was running aloDg by tbe side of
the train, which was backing down, to
cut on some cars. Hearing the switch
he ran ahead to turn it and bis foot
catching fast in a frog, he was run down
and killed - before any signal could be
Tbe fireman, who was leaning out of
the car window watching for signals, saw

drat gin? him along. The wheels had
passed over tbe left leg close to the bodv,
severing it. and the right leg waa cut
irom the instep to above tbe knee. ' Had
the train not been s'opped when it was,
bis head would have been severed, as bis
body had been thrown into sjch a posi

not speak during that time.
The body waa at once removed to Daj's
unaenaaing rooms and Uoroner Austin

through to Eldon and returned on a stock
train, arriving for the inquest held at 9:30
o cioca. a. verdict of accidental death by
being run over by a train was returned
and no blame attached to anyone. The
body was shipped to Rock Island on the

. Venae's) Paper Mill.
The Moline Paper company's immense
mill abut down Saturday evening, and it
is understood that it will remain closed
a 1 winter, and perhaps longer. When
the mil! was in full operation the pay roll
included about 80 names, including
about fiye or six women. These will all
be thrown out of employment during tbe
protracted shut down . The plant will
only be closed temporarily, or probably
until we can have water power again.
While the improvements are going on in
tbe pool there is no water power, and the
paper mill is more dependent upon this
kind of power than almost any otbtr fac
tory in Moline. Wben the mill starts up
again attention will be devoted to a fine
quality of book paper, and the mania fac-.
ture of news print win be discontinued
