DEATH IN AN AWFUL FORM.
Engineer Slowly Scalds Before Help
St. Paul, July 7.John E. McGowan,
an engineer on the Northern Pacific
railroad, was killed at 10:30 yesterday
when his engine jumped the track at
Dellwood, White Bear Lake. His right
arm was broken near the shoulder
and his left leg was fractured below
the knee. Death resulted from being
scalded. The train was only a short
distance from Dellwood station when
the track sank beneath the weight of
the locomotive. The coupling of the
engine and tender broke and the en
gine tipped over on the right side,
where McGowan was sitting with his
hand on the lever. He was caught
with his hand under the cab and was
pinioned to the ground. The steam
began to escape and the engineer was
slowly scalded to death while hun
