Obituary

Killed.

John Dunn, a laborer who had been in the employ of the Otter Creek Marble Company, at Brandon, was run over by the Rutland and Burlington train, due here at 9:35 last evening, and killed. It occurred a little distance this side of the depot at Brandon. The engineer saw what he supposed to be a bundle, and stopped the training as soon as possible, and on going back found him. The wheels passed over his head and entirely demolished it. He was intoxicated, and had laid down upon the track.
