ACCIDENT
JOH^I METZ, OF WETZEL. COUNTY,
FELL BENEATH THE CRUEL
WHEELS OF PASSENGER
TRAIN.
John Metz, of Earnshaw, Wetzel
county, met with a terrible accident
at the B. and O. station Saturday
night, which resulted in the amputation
of his right arm. He came to
this city on the Mannington excursion
early in the evening and returned
to the station about 9:30. Baggage
Master Zinn noticed that he was
drinking considerably and placing
him in the waiting room told him that
he would be notified before his train
left. When Pittsburg No. 4 came in
the crowd passing through the room
awakened Metz and running out he
grabbed the Clarksburg train while
it was pulling out. After riding it a
little distance some one told him of
his mistake and he jumped from the
steps, but stumbled and fell on the
platform, his right arm falling across
the rail. He was picked up and taken
to the Miners' Hospital, where amputation
was found necessary, the
member being almost entirely severed.
Metz is 39 years old and' married
and it is said that a large' family is
dependent upon him.
Won't Stand Without Hitching. =
The- police frequently have their
services enlisted by Out-of-town people
to locate missing horses which
mysteriously disappear from hitch- f
ing racks. The strenuousness of the
present campaign must be responsible
for this phenomena, for in not
a. single instance have the animals
been aided in their escape. It seems
