MAN KILLED -- The Johnstown Tribune says that a man by the name of James Woodford was killed on Tuesday night by one of the trains on the Pennsylvania Railroad. The deceased, in company with his brother Andrew, had gone to Wilmore in search of employment. On Tuesday, he left his brother at Wilmore and went to see a friend at Portage Station. On Wednesday morning, the sad news came to his brother that he had been killed on the track. His head had been partly cut off and his left arm broken. The deceased was twenty-seven years old, and was formerly a resident of Indiana county. A short time ago he moved to Clearfield county, near the Cherry Tree, where his mother now resides. His remains were taken to her on Wednesday evening.
