Barnesboro Man Killed

The worst mangled body that Undertakers McMillen & Killins of Barnesboro ever prepared for interment was that of Andy Malega, who was killed on the Walnut Run Branch of the PRR at the shaft of the Maderia Hill Coal Company Monday night about 9 o’clock. Malega and his brother- in-law were walking along the tracks and heard the train approaching. The latter stepped out of danger but Malega was not so alert and was caught. After the train passed, the brother-in-law called for Malega but received no answer. Walking ahead a few paces he stumbled over a portion of Malega’s body which was cut into many pieces.
