IN CITY AND COALFIELD
Knocked from Engine
James Taylor was knocked from an engine on the yard yesterday at noon and had his ankle sprained and his chest bruised. It appears that the throttle on an engine sprung out, striking him in such a way that he was thrown, fortunately escaping more serious injury.
Suffered Broken Leg
Frank Fink, an employee of the Appalachian Power Company, had his leg broken just east of Maybeury yesterday, when he stepped from the east bound track to the west bound track and was struck by the end of the tank of an engine. He was knocked to the ground, and was brought to St. Luke's hospital in this city, where it was found that his left leg was broken above the knee. The accident occurred about 5:15 yesterday afternoon.
Is Still Going Through
The Gary Pullman has not yet stopped running into New York, in spite of all reports to the contrary. It can be said that the company is considering the change mentioned in the Daily Telegraph on Sunday, although a bulletin to that effect has not been posted, as yet.
