Killed at the Crow Banks.

Herbert Keys, a young white man about 17 years of age, met his death last Friday at the Crow ore bank, on the property of the Etowah Iron Company.

He ran the tramway from the mines to the railway. He was going to the mines with an empty car and had gotten off to open one of the gates. After the car passed through the gate he attempted to jump on, but the car jumped the track and ran over him, terribly mangling him and killing him instantly.
