Little One Run Over by Engine; Eye Cut Special to The Telegraph Selinsgrove, Pa., Jan. 28. A remarkable escape from death was the experience of Annie Latshaw, aged 7, daughter of Rev. John Latshaw. She attempted to cross the Pennsylvania Railroad track in front of a train and was struck and knocked down by the pilot of the engine as the man at the throttle was powerless to prevent the accident. The train was brought to a ston and the crew hurried to the scene j expecting to find the mangled body of the child under the engine, out sne andcrawled out from between the tender iand baggage ear unassisted. She was bleeding from a cut over the right eye and other slight lacerations. A thorough examination failed . to disclose any serious injuries. The cut above the right eye seem. - to be the most severe.
