Awaita Death on Rail. While de
spondent because of domestle trouble,
a Watertown. citizen, nerving himself
for the deed with strong drink, delib
erately laid his head across a rail of
the Milwaukee tracks Monday night
and awaited the coming of the 10:10
flyer. Two friends, who had heard of
lis threat and followed him, dragged
him from danger when the oncoming
ttaln was only a fewfeet away. Hav
ing had words with his wife early in
the evening, he left home, went to a
saloon and began drinking heavily.
When alone in the saloon with the bar
tender he told the latter of hla trou
bles and declared he was going to end
all by throwing himself In front of the
flyer, and left the room. He desired
that the public should know the cause
when his body should be found. The
bartender, being alone, could not leave
his business and follow, but becoming
alarmed, went to a place of business
nearby and told of the threat. Two of
the despondent man's friends Institut
ed a search, and by the aid of his dog
soon traced him to the Milwaukee
tracks, where they found him lying on
his back asleep, with his neck on the
rail. The headlight of the swiftly ap
proacing flyer was flashing barely a
hundred feet away wheat the frantic
friends dragged the sleeping man from
a horrible death. He resisted at first,
but gave tip, and his friends took care
of him until he became rational, when
he thanked them for saviBg his life, as
ell desire far death had vanished,
