Charles Wheaton and Louis Prue
Wars Driving Home From ' Garden
Saturday Evening. ' -
Charles Wheaton . and Xouls Brue,
both , of this city. were instantly kffl-
ed and their bodies horribly mangled
when 'the wagon in which they were
riding-'.w struck by. the New Xork-
Boston express, due in this city at
6.82. The accident occurred on the
Columbia road, about 100" feet inside
of the city limits at 6.40 Saturday ew-
ieninjr.
j. Both men were -carried about 40
Jfeet by th engine. Prue's body was
dragged the furthest. The top or his
head was taken completely off and
his brains were scattered along1 the
tracks. His arms and legs wre
broken In -several places and his body
waa gashed. Wheaton si body was
also mangled, and his arms and legs
'were broken in several places. iSoth
'men were cut -about the face, but iden
(tifl cation was easy.
j The wagon was demolished, parts of
'it being carried ISO feet. The horse
Shadf a gash about eighteen inches 'otig
i and six inches deep on his flank-. -He
(was able to walk but his owner or
j dered him shot.
j The engineer on the train, which
iwas about fifteen minutes late, was
named Potter. The brakes were ap
plied as soon as the engineer became
'aware of the accident.
i Medical ExaminerW. L. Hlggins of
.South Coventry . was notified and the
I bodies were not moved until he ar
'rived. Wheaton was immediately
'Identified and iPrue was- recognized
later.
The men were going to Prue's gar
den to get some cabbages and left
this city about 6.30. Although no cab.
bagea were scattered ' around where
the accident happened, from the po
sition of the horse and. the bodies, it
looks as if the men were returning to
this city when struck. The crossing
Is in a bad place, as a sand bank
hides the tracks until one gets on
the railroad and the noise of the wag
ion wheels on the cement road prob
iably deadened all noise of the ap
f preaching train.
Wheaton is survived by his wife and
th-es children. Prue leaves a wife
and two children.

emmead Foley's Honey and Tar as a
sure cure for coughs and colds. It
cured my daughter of a bad cold. My

and her whole family with Foley's
'Honey and Tar, and everyone in our
neighborhood sneaks highly of it.'
fThis reliable family remedy masters
croup. It clears the air passages and

this city was fatally injured and died
a -few minutes later when struck-by
an automobile owned and driven by
Oscar Arnurius of Manchester o tfeo
Willimantic-Hartford state road, near
Manchester Green.
Mr, McNamara was taking an au
tomobile ride - with Albert YounfS of
this city and near the Green they
stopped and McNamara went to the
rear ,of the car to see how the rear
light was burning. He had not been
there two minutes when the other car

ed by the collision and on the right
thigh where the other auto hit him.
The pelvic bones were crushed and a

car, just to one side. He glanced up
and' saw the car coming and the next
thing his car hit him, knocking him,
down and Doth cars nrusnea past
him. His injuries were confined to
a lacerated hip ana bruised nana.
The car in which' McNamara ,was
riding was stopped on the right hand
side of the road, and he was probably
in front, of the light when the acci
dent occurred. Another auto was
passing just before the accident took
place and Arnurius says that he' was
blinded by the light and turned to
the right and did not see the other car
until he was on ton of it.
MerdicarExaminer Dr. W.'R. Tinker
viewed the body and gave permission
for its removal. -.
