When she entered the building the mangled and broken body of her "good man" confronted her, and it 1s believed he had been dead several hours. Henkle had been caught in the mala shaft of the machinery and whirled over until his legs and arms were broken aud was pounded and bruised from head to foot. A blow near the temple probably caused his death. He worked alone at the station, and no one witnessed the accident or his dying agonies.
