Way freight No. 96 from the north in charge of Conductor J. FERGUSON was placing some cars on the side track that crosses Lake street and running to the Ochs building, Mr. ROBBINS was returning from the post office when he was struck by some cars that had been switched on the main track. The engine was standing on the siding and Mr. ROBBINS not noticing that the cars were under motion had evidently stepped onto the main line waiting the engine to pass and did not see the cars coming until it was too late to get out of danger. The cars struck him on the side throwing him on his face in the ditch along the track. Dr. C. C. PROBERT was hastely summoned and on examination found that he was badly bruised about the face and hip but that he was not suffering from internal injuries and that no bones were broken. - Roscommon News.
