FOUND DEAD ON RAILROAD TRACK
fcfldot a Trial for Double MurderAshland Man Nearly
Perished in Mountains.
v Ashland, Nov. 24. The body of an unknown mat
between 35 aud 40 years of age, was picked up on the S. P
Co's roadbed, near the Edgewood station, Saturday after
noon. He apparently met death iu a mysterious manner.
As the north bound passenger train pulled out about a
quarter of a mile from the station, the train hands uotice.l
a man who was walkine on the side of the track make a
lunge for the last caf; but he did not succeed in mounting
the steps of the coach. An hour after an extra freight
traiu came along aud the engineer noticed something lying
across the roadbed, which proved-to be the body of a ma:i.
Hefore the train could be brought to a stand the locomotive
and seven cars had passed over the bod'. When picked
up the corpse was cold as though it had been dead for
some time ami was not mangled or cut; the pilot, locomo
tive and cars passiug over. the body without apparently
injuring it. The remains were taken to Edgewood aud the
coroner sinimoned to held an inquest.
At the inquest held this morning by Coroner Fair
childs the man could not be identified and a verdict of ac
cidental death, was rendered.
While the section mau was asleep, Saturday, the dead
man attempted to rob him and be afterwards gave him 50
cents with which to buy whiskey. It is believed he was
either asleep or too drunk to head the trains. There were
no papers of any description found on the body by which
it could be identified. ,

It causes tho patient to "throw up the
