Fatal Amusement.

About 4 o’clock on Saturday afternoon Harvey Wilson Fry, a young man who lived with his parents – Mr. and Mrs. Martin Fry, at No. 195 Garfield Street, Morrellville, fell under an east-bound stock train on the Pennsylvania Railroad a short distance below Neneveh, and he died in Johnstown four hours after, from the effects of his injuries.

Shortly after dinner on Saturday young Fry and several of his companions boarded a west-bound freight train at the Pennsylvania Railroad Station to take a ride to New Florence, where they arrived in safety. On their way back young Fry was giving his chums an exhibition of train-jumping by running along with the cars and jumping off and on. This he did for some time, until, when he attempted to make a leap he missed his hold and fell on the track, the wheels passing over his legs.
