The engineer on a north bound freight train Saturday night discov ered a etellrall lying across the track Just over the hill, two miles south of Adrian. The person or persons who fnt the obstruction there evidently ntended to wreck the fast mall train which goes south early in the morn ing. The engineer on this train could not have discovered the dang er In time to have stopped the train and a wreck would have followed. The English does not contain an eplthetstrong enough to fit the fiend who would do a deed of that kind. His name could not with propriety be need In respectable society. We sincerely hone that he will be apprehended and be given a punish ment commensurate with hU evil de sires on the lives of his fellow men.
