ing with bis back toward the approaching approaching train, which struck his wagon about midway, totally demolishing it, and the doomed man was thrown violently violently against the engine and lodged on the pilot. The body remained where it fell until the train could be stopped. He was dead when the train hands reached him. The left thigh was broken, his side , and back were badly damaged and the back of the head crushed in. The body was car ried to Tbomasville where it was washed, dressed and coffined, the railroad company paying all of the expenses and hiring a messenger to deliver the sad news to Mr. Stout's family. He was driving a mule and a horse. The horse had three or four ribs brokeu and received other injuries, but none of them fatal; the mule was unhurt.
