Colored Boy Struck by Train
William, the twelve year old son of Allen Saunders, colored, was struck by a train yesterday morning about 8 o'clock just west of the signal tower and an ugly gash about five inches in length cut in his head. The boy was picking up coal on the railroad, when a freight train passed, striking him and knocking the lad unconscious. He was carried to the office of Witten & Frazier and the wound attended to by Dr. H. M. Witten, who found that the skull had been fractured. It is believed the boy will recover.
