McCook, Neb., Dec, 27 An awful
railroad accident occurred ut Perry
Station, about six miles west or Me
Cook, at five o'clock ths evening,
which resulted in the instant death ol
Kiigineer Andrew Cummins and File
man Maxtor W. Goodrich, both of
whom aic recent anivals from Red
Cloud, whoie they were formerly in
the employ of the R. &il. It semis
that the engineer and fireman, with
ongino 135, wtro pulling tho gravel
train back to the gravel pit nt Wau
nctta and was backing up, tlicro be
ing no turn table at Wituuclta At
Perry Station they encountered and
ran over some hoiscs, tho animals go
ing under the engine, which was
thrown into tho di'ch, tho tender on
one side, tho locomotive proper ou the
other sido of tho track. Roth of the
engine men were pinioned under the
locomotive and wero crushed to death.
Word wa9 brought hero by a horse
man nnd the wrecker and crew (juick
ly repaired to the scene. Tho wotk of
releasing the dead men was prosecuted
with vigor, tho crushed and disfigured
bodies being brouizht back to McCook
at eight o'clock. Roth of the unfor
tunate men havo families living at Red
Cloud, Mrs. Cummins having onejchild.
Tho dead fireman's family consists of
a wife and two children.
This is ono of tho saddest accidents
that cycr occurred on tho western di
vision and it has cast a shadow of
gloom over this community.
The above item was taken from the
Lincoln Journal, and relates to two of
our well known and esteemed railroad
boys who met their death whilo in the
pursuit ot duty. Railroading has its
terrors and dangers, yet littlo docs the
passongcr think of those things when
ghdding over tho iron rails, drawn by
the ponderous locomotive, wlio.e guid
ing hand is that of tho bravo engineer
and his trusty fireman. Day in and
day out they remain at their posts,
facing countless dangers, yet ever
ready and willing to perform their du
ties no matter how severe. This
was the case with Andrew Cummins
and his fireman, R. W. Goodrich
They wore at their posts of duty when
the dread messenger came and called
them to a higher lifo. As soon us
possible after the accident their
families, in this city wero madu ac
quainted nith tho sad news and left
Tuesday cvoing -for McCook. On
Wednesday evening tho bodies were
brought to Red Cloud, and were met
! at tho depot by tho A,, O. U. W. and
Mapotiio lodges, and escorted to their
lato rosidcnc.'H. On Monday morn
ing at eleven o clock the funeral ol
Mr. Baxter Goodrich took place at tho
Congregational church under the
management of Red Cloud lodge No
00, A. 0. U. W, of which he was an
honored member. After the services
the body was taken to Salem, Kansas,
for interment, a large number of the
A.O. U. W lovs nnd friends following
and paying the last tribute at the
grave. Tho funeral of Andrew Cum
mins took place this afternoon at
ji.iuo eiockirom tiieuuristion oliurcli
and was taken charge of by Charity
large A. F. & A. M., of this city of
which Mr. Cummins was an cstcencd
member. Death is sad at all times,
but coming to their homes as it did
so unexpected it is doubly severe, nnd
and tho trying ordeal is ono that will
cause those left behind many tears of
anguish and muoh suffering that none
can portray that have not passed
through the afiliction. In thoirhourof
sorrow tho bereaved families and their
friends havo the heartfelt sympathy of
every household In tho city.
