11 oward Rogers, a fireman on
the Illinois Central, is missing. He
was last seen in the discharge of his
duty Saturday night, between Shan
dy and Hatchie river. After cross
ing the river, just before ascending
the grade on the South side, the
engineer ealjed to Rogers to fire the
engine, but received no response.
As soon as Bolivar was reached,
the engine was detached from the
train and backed to the river in
search of the missing man, but he
could not be found. The supposi
tion is that Rogers fell into the riv
er. Monday morning his cap was
found in the river about a mile be
low the railroad bridge. Every, ef
fort has been made to recover the
body, but without success. The
young man was about 2 4 years of
age and belonged to an old and
