Veteran Killed.

E. W. Southworth, freight conductor on the Passumpsic railroad, was killed at White River Junction last night. As his train was going into the Junction he slipped in some way and fell between the cars. Several cars ran over him and his body was frightfully mangled. Mr. Southworth was a resident of Lyndonville, where he has a wife and family. He was formerly a member of Co. D, First Vermont cavalry, and for a long time had been a member of Post Chamberlin, G. A. R.
