him ho hastened to the city and told his
discovery. The coroner and other citi
zens hastened to the scene , when the pa
pers wore secured , and an attempt was
made to lift the dead man from the
water when it was found that ho was
tightly imbedded in the quicksand. A

nround the body , which was seized by
willing hands , hut oven then it re
quired n great effort to pull
the body from its place. Six

pany got into court again , but this time
on a stipulated agrecmontand the board
of transportation will not be called upon
to settle the old sore. The following
agreement tells the whole story which
was tiled with the board to-day :
In settlement of the matters referred
to in the complaint of the village of

ties horcto ngrco that said railroad com
pany will construct the sidewalk called
for by the town ordinance on t'lo south

necessary in order to bring the
sidewalk to the proper grade of said
street , and protect the sumo with proper
balustrade ; said walk to extend us fur
eiibt as the real estate extends owned
by the said railroad company.
Thebuid railroad company also agrees
to furnish the material Unit the city
may need for the construction in the
llr&t instance of a guard or balustrade
