a spirited one and not accustomed to the
work When near Bancroft's road and
the Hue of tbe old city railroad,the horse

The roller had no seat, so the driver is
compelled to stand upon It. When the
animal jumped from the cut. Wieble was
thrown from the roller to the ground,
In falling, he managed to grasp the
shafts and endeavored to raise himself to
the roller. He was unsuccessful, and
after being dragged about teu feet was
forced to let goof the shaft
In falling he was unable to get on his
feet and, in auother instant, was nnder
the ponderous roller. It passed over his
chest crushing his heart aud otherwise
injuring him internally.
William, his 16 year-old son, who was
with him at tbe time, was horrified at
the awful death of bis father, He was
dumbfounded and was unable to stop the
animal after it had doue its deadly work.
