Barnesboro, Pa., Dec. 9th -- Andy Lazarcak of Cambria City, Johnstown, was run over and instantly killed by a train on the Susquehanna division near Barnes tipple No. 7 at 7 o'clock Monday night. The man was alone at the time he met death. A few minutes before he had been in the company of some friends at one of the hotels and walked away alone. The next heard of him was that he had been killed. As the train came thundering along, the headlight revealed to the engineer the form of a man lying on the track, but there was no time to stop before he was run over and the body was horribly mangled. The train was stopped and the crew found that the body had been cut in two below the shoulders, the arms were cut off and the left leg severed above the ankle. The remains were taken to the undertaking rooms of Bougher & McMullen where they were prepared for burial.

The dead man had been in this place several times recently negotiating for the purchase of a hotel. He formerly conducted one at Cambria City and before that was proprietor of the Midway Hotel at Windber.
