KILLED ON RAILROAD. Unknown Negro Boy Found Dead Near the Lukens Co. Mill. The body of a iiegro boy Apparently about 12 years old was found Dfl tbe track of the Central railroad near the yard of tbe Lukens Lumber Mill about 3 3) Monday afremoon. The local freight cme iu ?bout 20 or 30 minutes before, and it a supposed be was run over by it, hut no one has been found who knows anything about how be was killed. One leg and one arm were cut iff, the other leg broken nod arm dislocated. The trains come in slowly at that point, and tbe hoys who are generally loafing thereabouts have been in the babit of climb? ing on tbe trains aad riding up to the depot, and the probability is that he met bis death in that way. Who tbe boy is had not been found out rben tbe above information was obtained, but be is no doubt one of tbe many of that age and site to be fouod about tbe railroad and depot at all boors of tbe day and much of tbe nigbt, with very little to do. Coroner Hoses held en icquestt Monday afternoon otter tbe remains of tbe negro boy found dead oo the A.C. L track near the depot. Tbe name of tbe boy could not be ascertained and none of tbe circumstances of tbe killing are known. Tbe verdict of tbe jury was that tbe unknown negro boy was killed by being run over by ths A. C. L. freight train and that no blame attaches to tbe railroad company. Treasurer Scarborough has bis books in readiness to begin tbe collection of taxes on Oct. 15th.
