Mr. .lohnsev and hie family reside within a few yards of the truck on the opposite side from the depot and the child, a little girl, escaped from the yard and was making for the depot when it was dis covered by its mother who ran to over take it. An engine was passing at the time and hefore the mother could catch her baby it was Btruck by the cowcatch er of the engine and instantly killed.
