TRACKMAN IS KILLED OUTRIGHT

Wylie Burris of Glen Easton Unable to Hear Train

 

     Wylie Burris, of Glen Easton, a B&O trackman, was struck by a westbound passenger train No.71 near Glen Easton just before four o'clock Wednesday evening.  A bad wound at the base of the brain on the left side caused instant death.  It is supposed that the rush of water during the storm prevented him from hearing the train in time to step out of danger.
     Burris leaves a wife and four children.
