Frank, son of Ladwig Ignarska, liv
ing about a mile north of Tarnor, this
county, waa struck by the train Sunday
evening and killed, dying almost in
stantly. Both legs aad one arm were
broken, and his heed hurt badly. The
lad waa aboat 10 years old, washerding
cattle, and it seems difficult to aay just
how the accident happened. One pas
senger on the train saw the lad and
supposed he was six or eight feet from
the passing car. The next seen of him
he was awinging around on to the track
from the rear end of the last car, when
the train was stopped. The accident
happened aboat 8 o'clock. Our special
correspondent writes us from Humphrey
from which we gather some additional
particalars. The mother was raving
crazy Saaday night, ao that they had
not been able to get a statement from
her. She was seen running from the
boose, which is near the track, imme
diately after he was killed, so she may
have seen how it happeeed. A traveling
maa standing on the rear platform aaw
him, and he waa whirling over and over
in the middle of the track, aad this was
the first any one knew there waa an ac
cident. No wheels pissed over him, and
everyone who has seen the child and
seen how he was found thinks he most
have grabbed at the handle-bar on the
rear coach, caught hia hand and waa
thrown witk sach force onto the track
that be waa instantly killed. He looks
like there was not a whole bone ia his
body. Some of the traveling men were
crying yet when they reached Humph
rey. They said his mother was the most
terrible sight they ever saw. We learn
from another source that Coroner Metz
held an inqaest at Hamphrey. and that
the railroad eompaay was censored for
not having the right of way under fence.
