Dismembered on the Railroad
Special to The Inquirer.
POTTSVILLE, Pa., Dec. 14.---Frederick Gounder, of Cumbola, met a shocking death on the Philadelphia and Reading Railroad at Eagle Hill colliery this afternoon. While working about a shifting engine, which was obscured most of the tome by clouds of steam, he was run down and his body horribly mangled. One of his arms and both of his legs were cut off. He died in a very short time after the accident.
