O. freight to Tunnelton in Grafton yard, despite the fact that they were badly intoxicated. They continued to ride in peace, embracing each other, pledging fealty and love as only drunks can do. when an argument came up and Leighty says Coban called him a "d-scab," and a fight ensued.

It .seems that Coban. after knocking his "buddy" from the train, felt sorry, and In his maudlin condition attempted to jump from the mo\intt train to see what had become of his pal. and in jumping was thrown under the train.

How he was able to drag himself, injured a«* bad as he was. out of the tunnel, onto the porch of tho barber shop, seems-almost impossible.
