Miraculously Escapes,, STRUCK ON MAIN STREET P. M. CROSSING "BY PASSENGER TRAIN YESTERDAY AFTERNOON. Mrs. Cross Will Recover. ^< «« One of the most shocking railroad accidents Olare has ever Known, occurred yesterday afternoon when the west-bound passenger train struck the rig driven by Mrs. Dolph Lebherc living one and one-half miles north of . Dover, she being accompanied by her mother, Mrs. Eli Cross, living just west of Dover. Mrs. Lebherc was instantly killed, Mrs. Oross received numerous injuries, and the horse died within fl,ve minutes after being hit. The buggy was smashed to splinters. The deceased was taken to A. Thurston & Go's undertaking rooms and the mother's wounds and bruises were attended by r>rs. Sanford and Lamb summoned by agent J. H. Galliver, in the express office, and as Soon as pds- Dible she was taken to the home of Senator and Mrs. • A. J. Doherty, tfiiose hospitality many an unfortunate baa shared. The Sentinel ecrlbe called this morning and found Eire* Oross resting as comfortable as fflould be especte% .Her injuries are many, but the one probably most cstioras is tlje knee of the left limb, the "Baasiiles holding the knee Cap in itlaee having been raptured and the D&sells having been drawn out of glacs. The little finger of the left fam& was split open and these, besides chest bruises and bruises on several parts of the body, comprise.her known injuries. It is to be hoped no serious internal injuries will develop, and this being the case she will be able to be around again in a few weeks. A coroner's jury consisting of David McPhall, J. F. Tatman, A. S. Rhodes, George W. Lee, T. 0. Holbrook and R. M. Mussell was empaneled by Justice A. W. Mclntyre which viewed the dead body and adjourned till ten o'clock Monday, December 23d. Un- dersberiff 3. L. Welch^was on duty and the afternoon train brought Prosecutor Cummins who directed the proceedings. E. G. Welch was appointed clerk of the court. Going to press before tbe findings of the jury the Sentinel can only give both sides of the case as near as possible as it will be brought out by sworn witnesses Monday. The ladies had been purchasing goods at Holbrook's Department' Store and were driving north, and when near the track they heard a train whistle, but not seeing faithful old "Grandpa" Liese, the Watchman, they thought there was no danger and made the attempt to cross. Others say that "Grandpa'* was oh duty at his post and made eyery endeavor to Btop them. If for any season Mr. Liese did not do his duty, the railroad company are liable for damages, bub however this be, the truth will be ascertained at the inquest. Mrs. Cross was taken home this afternoon, and there seems to be no doubt.of her recovery. Mrs. Libherc leaves a husband, two daughters nine and seven years of age and a baby boy one year old. And this makes her death doubly sad, as tbe mother's gentle guidance and help will be bitterly missed by them. One nf the most pathetic parts of this terrible accident, was, that scattered along the track where the mother met her death was a little handsled, a drum, a little doll, and doll cab besides other little gifts which the fond mother and grandmother were taking home to the little ones. Imagine the heartaches when the husband and children heard of the catastrophe! Deceased was thirty years old last October and had lived in Olare county for tbe past twenty-four years. Besides her immediate family she leaves a father and mother, two brothers, Dennis, a soldier in the Philippines, and Joe, of Ashland, Wis., and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Smith and Sarah Cross, thirteen years of age. The funeral will be held from the Dover church Sunday at two p. m. and the remains interred in Cherry Grove cemetery. The railroad company haye known for years that this Main street crossing is a dangerous place, and had they placed gates there this accident would have been averted. The full proceedings of the inquest may be published in next issue. The nature of the accident is such that the entire sympathy of all is with the bereaved in this the saddest experience, probably, of their lives. A. H. Mallory, civil engineer for the National Bridge Co. of New York, spent Sunday at the home of his uncle, Jas. EL Seeley. 1 A Card.
