murrer was sustained. On Monday afternoon Felix Pflanzer, an old stone-mason, and his grandchild, a boy about' six years old, attempted to cross the Cincinnati, Hamilton aud Day ton Railroad track in the vicinity of Shipley's agricultural works, below tim.depot, by crawling under a iruiicut train that was standing opposite the works and blockading tho crossing. They bad waited several minut-s, and the truin not moving, the old man concluded to wait no longer. Just asShey had got under the car, the train moved. Pllanzer scrambled out, and in endeavoring to extricate the child, he. had his hand crushed by the wheel. The boy lay between the rails,, and live cars passed" over him, but strnnire to say, he onlv had one arm fractured, which was probably caused by the brake-bars, which hang down near the track. ihe train was stopped as soon as the signal was given, aud the little fellow pulled out from under the car. Pllanzer and the boy were taken to Dr. Markt's drug store, and surgical assistance ren dered. The Doctor thinks he can save tho boy's arm from amputation, but the old man will lose several fingers.
