He was walking down the track, be

the road. Forgetting that south
bound trains were using the north
bound track, he did not perceive his
danger until too late. The tender of
the engine caught him with consider
able force, knocking him some dis
tanci.', but luckily clear of the track.
He suffered a sarlous concussion of the
brain, and was unconscious when
