Thursday evening, John ?.'. Hughes,,
sixty-four years old. started for his
home at y "J fro?-..-, t Street, Kuthcr
ford, K. J.
Mr. Hutches b?. am. lntcr?BSted In
I i.<w .???;. p?-r, and when tin train
.stopped Just before reaching th?;
bridge over Hackensack River he
thought it was the Itutherford sta?
tion.
Absent-mindedly he pushed hisj
v ay to th.- ??Intform and Slighted. At
the same time the tr-:iu started up j
and .Mr. Hughes, r? all/ing he was in;
a wilderness ?.ml some distantes from
Rutherf? ?*?!. attempted to board it. '
but failed. !
The train passed an?! the aged man '
ptarted to walk t?-> Rutherford. Aa <
he got In th.? cent? r of th?- Hacken-I
River bridge h?* saw a train sp- '
proachinir In the opposite dir?-, tie'?. ?
and he leaped to Hie furthr-r tra.-k. ?
only to l?MM his footing and plum,'?* ?
oft the span.
Drops Into the Water.
Mr. Hughe* was thrown again
piling which, after falllnc ten feet I
toward the water. fract?ired his riyht ;
hip and canacd other Injuries. He|
then dropped into the water, which al i
that point is deep.
A good irwtmrTier. Mr. Hughe* man
d to bring himself to the surface
,-ift?-r he sank and then he floundered
shout until he caught htild of a spar.
There he clung yelling for help,
eral tratas t?a-raed, but the rattle of
th?- cars only drowned his voice and
shook th.? spar until all his strength
wns required to hold on.
Pot nearly half an hour he clung
to the ???par. Hi* voice was beeomini*
OTt ak and his alrcngth was first giv
InK away. The pain in the fractured
hit? was excruciating.
Down th.- river ?am.- a boatman.
The light on the boat was within a
f.-w feet of Mr. Hughes, but his vole??
was so choked that It hardlycarried
to It. Then Mr. Hughes b? at on the
water with his* left lag and attracted
tlie attention caiman.
Hc*?c?i?*?l by a Horn man.
He was placed in the boat and taken
ashore. Th?-n lie was carried up th.
bank and placed at the side of the
track. Shortly before S o'clock a *
bound train was sighted, and with his
lantern the boatman brought It to 8
stop.
The boatman explained that Mr
?Hughes had fallen off the bridge and
would soon ?lie unies? medical atten?
tion was given him. The injured man
was put on Hie train and taken to St.
Mary a Hospital at Passaie. There Dr.
i>i?onne!l uni?! that unless pneumonia
developed Mr. Hughes would probably
