HILL, R. H. C.

LOCAL AND PERSONAL.

R.H.C. Hill, Baltimore, representing the R.G. Dun Mercantile agency, about 2 o’clock Thursday morning walked off Western Express near Ryde Station, twelve miles east of Huntingdon, Pa., and was ground to death by a freight train moving on an adjoining track. He was about thirty five years old. Hill was sleeping restlessly, when suddenly he arose and walked out on the platform. One of his fellow passengers noticed that his eyes were closed, and believing he was walking in his sleep, hurried after him, but was too late. Before the rescuer reached the door Hill had stepped off the platform, and an instant later was beneath the wheels of the freight cars.
