Anton Jenson Narrowly Escaped Being Killed at Me
tuchen Yesterday—Was Struck by a Train
but was not Seriously Injured—Was Dodging
Freight Trains.
Hand Which Was Swinging in Front of Him
Was Hit and the Man Thrown Several
Feet—Was Badly Bruised and Shaken
up—Continued to this City Where
Wounds Were Dressed.
Anton Jensen, the State street sew
ing machine dealer, was struck by an
express train on the Pennsylvania
railroad at Metuchen yesterday after
noon about 5 o’clock, but escaped
with slighFinjuries.
This road has four tracks. The two
outside tracks are for passengers trains
and the two inside for freight. Mr.
Jensen was on the south side and, as
is the custom of .anyone who crosses
this dangerous place, he looked care
fully to ascertain is tliore were trains
From the west there was a freight
bound tor New York and from the
east there was also a freight. Both
were long but the east bound train
passed first and Mr. Jensen stepped
behind this one and waited for the
other to pass. When this had passed
he started to cross the track. One
hand was swinging in front of him
and this was hit, by the locomotive of
a west bound express which had come
up unobserved. The hand, hip and
knee were all struck but the out
stretch ed was struck first and the force
swung the man’s body around and
took much of the forco from the body.
To this lucky hand Mr. Jensen proba
bly owes his uninjured hip and.leg if
not his life. He was hurled several
feet and fell on the rock ballast of
the tracks. His chin was bruised and
his lip cut badly. The bones of the
hand and wrist may be broken. Mr.
Jensen arrived here still suffering
from the severe shock.
Dr. G. W. Tyrrell dressed the
wounds, none of whicli ate very ser
ious. This is remarkable. There are
few such escapes from Pennsylvania
express trains.

Edward Acker Buys the Van
Name Property in Tottenville
and will Move There Shortly.
Edward Acker, who lias a machine
shop on the Staten Island shore near
Sea Breeze, has sold that property to
Charles Leahand, of New York, and
lias purchased the YanName property
at the foot of Main street, Tortenville,
to which place he will shortly move
his plant.
When seen by a News reporter this
morning, Mr. Acker|said the sale and
purchase had hut re.cently been made
and that his plans were not yet com
pleted. He said ire \rtid not know
what Mr. Leahand would do with the
place Mr. Acker now occupies.
It is expected that Mr. Acker will
move his machine shops within a
short time. The new location is
much better adapted for his purpose,
being nearer communication with both
New York and Perth Amboy.
For several years past the machine
shops have been busy turning out
small engines for power boats, and
these engines are installed in many
boats in these waters. They have
given much satisfaction and are in
creasing in popularity. With his new
plant, Mr. Acker expects to do a still
larger business.
