Mrs. I. D. Kinnaman received a telegram last Thursday evening that her husband, who was a bridge builder, had fallen from the Merchants' Bridge in East St. Louis, a distance of sixty feet on Wednesday afternoon and had died from the injuries received at 11 a.m. that day. Mr. Kinnaman, her little daughter, her sister Mrs. Nebeker and Mr. Nebeker left for their home in Altamont, Ill., by the evening train, ordering the body prepared for burial and shipped home at once. The funeral services took place on Saturday. The bereaved have the sympathies of their many friends here, in their sorrow and sad bereavement. Hiram Smith, a farmer of north Vermilion County, was run over by the gravel train in east Danville, Ill., last Tuesday evening, one week ago and received injuries from which he died soon after. One of his horses wee killed instantly. Extra care should be taken by our citizens at this place. This same train goes through here at a terrible rate. Murdered A Crazy Man. Crawfordsville, Ind., Sept. 21-Last night a man suffering from mental aberration and giving his name as J. J. Reinhan of Danville, Ill., arrived in the village of New Ross, six miles east of Crawfordsville. After wandering aimlessly about the streets for a while he got into the buggy of William Evans, which was hitched to a post and drove rapidly away. He was followed by Evans and Coroner Bronaugh, who in a couople of hours met him returning. Evans drew his revolver and shot Reinhan through the head, inflicting a fatal wound. Evans has not been arrested. The coroner is staying with the dying man waiting for breath to leave his body so that he can hold an inquest.
