Track Walker Killed

Ananias Rose, a track walker in the employ of the Pennsylvania Railroad company, was instantly killed Sunday morning near Mineral Point above Conemaugh by east bound train No. 11. The unfortunate man was working at the curve about 600 feet from the Mineral Point station. He and another man were boring into a rail in the middle of the track. They saw a train coming on another track and the noise from that prevented their hearing No. 11's approach until too late for Rose to escape. His companion got away just in time to escape Rose's fate. Rose's body was literally cut to pieces, fragments being strewn all around. George Bros., of South Fork, took charge of the remains and the funeral was held at Wesley chapel on Monday.

The deceased lived at Mineral Point, was 47 years of age and is survived by two children.
