Died of His Injuries.

Tom Ramsaur, a negro train hand on the East and West railroad, fell between the cars at Jacksonville, Ala., Tuesday evening while coupling cars, and had his arm and leg badly mashed. A physician was called and it was decided to amputate his arm. He rallied form the operation and seemed to be doing well until about seven o’clock when he suddenly grew worse and died in a few minutes.

He had an accident some time ago, and had only been at work about two weeks since his recovery.
