C. Davis, tho engineer did nil lw- could to stop the train when he dis cowered the man but a-t this part of the road bed is on a descending grade it is not possible to stop heavy trains easily. From ull that can be learned, Clayton, who with two other men, Dailey and Peterson, was working on iho section gang and had been sent down tho line to clean out some switches. They heard the train coming and Dailey and Peter son scrambled up on the snow, which is about live feet deep and forms what would be called a cut, only that, there is no room between the walls and the cars for a body. Clayton did not try to get out of the cut but ran ahead of the train probably thinking it would stop. Peterson escaped uninjured and Dai ley's injuries only amounted to bruises. The remains of Clayton were brought here anil buried under tlft direction of Dr. Hoxsey on Tuesday. John Clayton belonged to the (lot-am and jetsam of humanity, lie was one of that vast army o( men that are con stantly going from one place to another working a few days here and next week turning 1 up in another stale. A good man, doubtless, as many of them ate, but with that roving spirit which lias possessed so many men, he could not abide long in a place. He was about thirty-eight years old and had worked about a week or ten days on the fang. Left no property. Not even a valise. Nothing was found on his person to give a clue by which his friends or re lations could be found saw a small memorandum book in which he bad kept his time and store account. His: name was not even found. John Cliiy ton wtw the name which he had giveu to the timekeeper. On one leaf of the memorandum book was written in a good bauid. "Tom Fagan, GU O4th St , oil Mission, S»n Francisco, Cala." Dr. Hoxsoy has written to the above address giving the facts, with a faint hope that in this way his relatives may be found and advisoJ of his death and decent buriaj.

Don"t forget the Valentino social tomorrow night at the friteraal tall given by the Lad; IVrreM Irs Miss A. Grace Gill, Leavenworth*i popular primary teacher, has tendered her resignation to the board of school directors to take effect March Ist. Miss Gill resigns her position to lake charge of her father's General Merchandise store in Scio, Oregon. She regrets very much to give up her school, especially in the middle of the term, as she loves the little ones whom she has been with for two years and is greatly attached to the primary work, but as her father is advanced in years and no longer able to handle the business and is unwilling to trust it in tho hands of anyone except ''Grace,"' therefore she feels it her duty as a daughter to submit. The board of education deeply regrets the loss of such an able instructor likewise the parents of the little ones and in fact the town in general will miss her in more ways than one as no social function was com plete without her.
