Plummer Drown of Wheelock, while coupling cars at Sherbrooke, P. Q., last Thursday morning, had his arm badly smashed; and it is supposed that he fainted, falling across the rail, and the freight train passed over him, cutting off one leg near the body. His injuries were so great that he died about four hours afterwards. He leaves a wife and two children to mourn his sad fate. He was a new brakeman, having commenced work Wednesday. Short was his new task.
