Injuries Probably Fatal
John Henley, a section laborer, was probably fatally hurt near Iaeger Tuesday night while trying to get out of the way of the Dry Fork passenger train. The man, who was not on duty at the time of the accident, stepped out of the way of the local train and directly in the way of a freight train on the westbound track. He was attended by local doctors who advised that he be taken to Welch, which was done, and the injured man is now at Miner's hospital where the chances for recovery are against him.
[Another "second train" accident in double track territory.]
Loses Left Foot
Louis Falls, of Roanoke, while trying to catch a freight at Graham yesterday afternoon about 1 o'clock lost his left foot. He was a trespasser and was trying to steal a ride to the coalfield. The man was brought to this city where he was placed in the Bluefield Sanitarium for treatment.
