A Mr. Roach fell off the train, at Stegall’s Station, this Wednesday morning, and was instantly killed by the fall.  He had undertaken to climb to the top of the cab, and missed the top hold, and fell to the ground while the train was in motion.  It is said that his head was bursted into atoms.  He was one of the train hands.  His remains were sent on to Atlanta for interment.  He was, fortunately, a single man.
