Thomas Dalton, of South Fork, was drowned in the Conemaugh river at the P.R. R. stone bridge at that place Saturday evening.

He was crossing the bridge and in an endeavor to get out of the way of a train stepped off the bridge, falling 25 feet into the stream. His body was found late Saturday night in 12 feet of water. The remains were taken to his boarding house in South Fork, thence conveyed by railroad to his home in Bedford county for burial. The deceased was about 27 years old.
