A Terriblo Tragedy of the Ball nt
Devanney's Bridge Mrs. Bridget

Mrs. Edward Kelly, of Scott Street,
Ground to Death Under Passenger
Train from Scranton Crossing the
Bridge When Run Down.
There was a tenlble tracorty of the
rail enacted yesterday afternoon In
the death of Mm. Hrldcet Walsh,

The women were run down on De
vanney's btldpe, Brooklyn stteet, by
passenBer ttaln No. 3, nn the Ontario
and Western load, which Is due In
Carbondale at 4 10. One, Mis. Walsh,
was hurled to her death, and Mis.
Kelly was Riound to death under the
wheels of the flying ttaln. Hci's wns
a hoirlfylnff death. Her body was
fearfully matiRled by tbe wheels. Her
head was cut off and Knocked alone:)
oer the tlex of the bridge. Both
Iprs were crushed mid nho was dis
emboweled, Mrs. Walsh lived fm .Miout fifteen
minutes after being struck. She wan
hit on the bead and back, which would
irdicrfte that she wns tiylng to get
out nf haim's wny. She was thrown
on tho glidois, but lived not mote than
a quarter of an hour after being
The scene of the mildeut is known
as Peanne's bridge, whhh crosses
Erookljn stieet oepliead. Mis. WhIMi
and Mrs. Kelly were on their way to
visit friends at the lower end of
Brooklyn, and they chose the rail
road tracks of the Ontatlo and West
ern because of the route being appre
ciably shorter, thn toad running with
in a stone's throw of their homes.
They weie walking In the direction in
whhh the tialn was coming and weie
not more than ten teet fiom the ex
treme eivi df the bridge when the
t.aln came flying toiind the utre
from Mnyfleld Yawl. The end of the

tHe bridge, and the trainmen ate not
afforded a full lo of tho htldge until
the train sweeps dear of the bildge.
The women, as .slated befoie, had only
a few feet to onor befoie being otf
the bridge, and a meiclful Intel ven
tion of ii few cei'iimls would lune pre
erved them from the awful fate
whhh lslted them. Behind them was
a man, .-. stiauger. who left Imme
diately .liter the dieadful happening,
without dl( losing his Identity. He
was not with the women, but was
walking In the same dlieitlon as they
were. In desulblng the aci lilent, he
(aid that the ti .tin was nil but upon
them when he shouted to warn the
women. Mis. Walsh, who was tome
whit w.-akenel fiom age, was slow In
getting off tho ttaiks and was struck,
partly on the side. When she was
plt bed iside, !. almost fell Into the
arms of the man, who stood on the
bridge girders, paral.zed uith fear.
Mrs. Kelly. It appears, was either
feat-stricken or did tint hear the
warning cry. for the engine note dmvn
on her before she could moe to one
side tn another Instant the slight
Iform was being frightfully mangled
.under the speeding train.
Engineer Peck, who was nt the
IhrbftTeV did not succeed in stopping
the train until the last car had passed
oyitrrHrs, K'Hy'r -form.
There wr.s u slikenlng sight when
th trainmen came back. Mrs. Kelly's
body was almost denuded and along
the rails and about the tics blood and
shreds of flesh weie scattered.
The mangled body of Mrs. Kelly
was cart.ed over the hridge and laid
along the embankment. Mrs. Walsh
was yet alive, though her vltalltv was
rapidly growing less. The hospital
ambulance was summoned, also Dr.
Harpier, but before either nrrled, Mrs.
Walsh jiassed away.
