A Hoy's Frightful Dentil.
Ono of the most terrible accidents that has
happened in Omaha for some time was the
dashing to death of little Robert Neal , n
thlrtecn-ycnr-old boy , on the 13. & M. cross
ing over Thirteenth street yesterday fore
noon. In company with his father , 13. F.
Ncal , who lives on the corner of Sixteenth
and William streets , the boy was walking
west on the B. & M. tracks , and when he
reached the bridge ho ran ahead of his
father. At this moment the 10:40 : train came
rushing around the curve from the west , but
was obscured by the smoke from a Union Pa
cific train passing on the track below. The
father was Just stepping UJKNI the bridge and
.he boy was about two-thirds across when
Mr. Neal suddenly espied the train only a
lew feet from his son. He shouted to the
joy to get to one side , and had ho understood
ils father's words , lie might have been saved.
iJut not noticing the approaching danger , ho
turned to hear what his father was saying ,
when the locomotive struck him. His feet
became entangled in the cowcatcher and ho
was dragged several feet. When within
ibout twenty feet of the spot where his
father stood the head of the boy struck an
upright bolt , and the entire top of the
skull was broken off and the brains
scattered along the track for a distance of
fifteen feet. The entire brain cavity was
emptied. The engine carried the body to the
spot where the nironlrcil father stood and
lashed the mangled remains of his boy at his
"ect. The father was distracted with horror
uul grief nt the terrible sight.
The coroner was summoned and the re-
nains were carried to the morgue , where an
nquest is to bo held this morning nt 11
o'clock. An examination of the body shows
.hat in addition to the frightful bursting of
.ho skull , the Jaw bono and both legs were
broken. The father blames the railroad com-
> any for the accident , as ho says that the
train was running at an unlawful rate of
speed , and that no warning of any kind was
given by the engineer.
DIED AT THE'POOB HOUSE.
Sad Fate of Noble Hearted Fred Nell ,
.This afternoon the members of the brick-
ayers' union will lay to rest one of their
members , whoso experiences previous to be
ing claimed by the messenger of death were
particularly sad. The name of the deceased
is Fred Neil , and he passed from this life in
the hospital attached to the county poor farm ,
where ho was driven , it is claimed , by n
icartless brother-in-law whom he had aided
financially and in various other ways. A
jrother is also openly censured for his appar
ent lack of love and respect in a trying mo
ment. Neil was a hard-working , industrious
young man , and , as the story goes , contrib
uted his earnings toward bringing from the
old country his sister and brother-in-law ,
whom ho established in a pleasant homo at
Walnut Hill. Several days ago ho was taken
down with malarial fever , and , as is alleged ,
its money became exhausted on Friday last.
Ho was stopping with this brother-in-law , and
when Fred's finances became low ho forced
him to leave his room and seek shelter
n the poor house , whither he walked. There
ho was kindly received by the management ,
and while his fellow workingmen were mak
ing merry at their annual ball at Exposition
ball about 2 o'clock Saturday morning his
spirit took flight to the other world.
Intelligence of Neil's death was communi
cated to the union on Saturday , and the pres
ident , Leo Frost , nt once appointed a com
mittee to investigate the circumstances and
make arrangements for the funeral. The
committee reported the foregoing details to
Mr. Frost , who nt once authorized them to
secure a coflin for the deceased and carriages
for the members to attend the burial this
afternoon. Ono hundred dollars has been
donated to defray the expenses of the obse
quies , which promise to bo of a quiet out im
Death of Mrs. Grant.

Ham Wallace , died at 11 o'clock Saturday , at
her late residence , nt the ripe age of seventy-
three. Yesterday Mr. and Mrs. Wallace left
for Cannon O. , in charge of the remains ,
where the interment is to take place.
