Sad Accident.—Monday morning as the Southern bound freight train on the Selma, Rome and Dalton Road was leaving Pinson’s Depot, Mr. Charley Mills, the conductor, left his caboose for the purpose of going on the engine, and when he had gotten on the tender and was making his way forward, he stepped on a stick of wood, which turned with him and threw him off, striking his head against a stump, killing him instantly.  Mr. Lloyd, another conductor, who was with Mr. Mills, was thrown from the tender in the same way, and severely hurt. – Rome Commercial.
