Circumstances of the Manner in Which He Was Killed at Perkinsville.

The full particulars of the accident in the quarries at Perkinsville, by which Frank Robinson lost his life, are as follows; He volunteered to run the engine and claimed to be an experienced engineer. Supt. Hicks warned him tot be careful not to get too close to the gears. He was told to take off his coat or button it up, but said, "save your warnings for a green hand. I understand all about this." The superintendent left the engine house and in about eight minutes a hand went there for something and found Mr., Robinson dead, apparently drawn through the heavy gears which are used in hauling up the blocks. This quarry has been very lucky. In forty years of almost continued operation only two men have been killed, one by earth caving onto him, and this one being drawn into the gears. Several have been slightly injured.
