A very distressing accident occurred here Tuesday morning at 5 o’clock.  Mr. J. M. Malcomb, train hand with conductor J. C. Glozier, was putting on a brake on a coal car and lost his balance and fell in front of the cars, the train was backing, three cars and the engine passed over him.  He was instantly killed.  He leaves a wife and four children.  His home was near Tilton.  Mr. Patterson, the coroner, held an inquest, the jury did not put any blame on the railroad.  His remains were placed in a neat casket and sent to his bereaved family at Tilton.  Our entire community tenders their heartfelt sympathies to the bereaved wife and children.
