besides other injuries. He died at the Dicldnson Hospital in Northampton at
1.30 P. M. the same day.

October 23. — Mrs. Mary Dunn, 46 years of age, while lying upon the track
about half-way between the Mount Tom and Northampton stations, was struck
by train No. 86 and instantly killed at 11.40 P. M. There were reasonable
suspicions that she had been killed and placed upon the track in advance of
the train.

April 16, 1887. — Patrick Re3molds, a tramp, got upon train No. 24 at the
Holyoke station, and after the train had run a short distance, Beynolds, in
attempting to jump from the train, fell under it and was severely In-
jured, and died April 19. He was partially intoxicated at the time of the
accident.

April 20 — The body of William S. Haley of Amherst was found upon our
track In *• Jones Cut," near Holyoke. Apparently, he had been dead some
hours when discovered by the engineer of train No. 33. The cause of his
death is unknown, and there was no evidence of any collision with the trains
of our road, excepting such as arises from the place in which the body was
found.

May 7. — James S. Lee of Holyoke, while attemping to go In front of a
switch train which was being backed on the South Holyoke branch track, was
caught in a narrow space between the train and W. N. Potter's storehouse
platform, receiving internal injuries from which he died on the following
day.

May 21. — Hans Hamilton, a passenger from Holyoke to Chlcopee on train
No. 36, fell asleep and was carried past Chlcopee. On awaldng about a half
mile south of Chlcopee, he jumped from the train, was Injured and died
May 26.

June 6. — Frederick Dunbar of Holyoke, a child three years of age, was
playing under the cars standing on Race Street in Holyoke. This train was
near his father's house, and the child was allowed to play in the street and
about the cars unattended. Another train was attached to this train, and it
was moved, killing the child Instantly. Of course no one knew at the time
that the child was under the train.

August 29. — Ell Roberts, brakeman on the Holyoke switch-train, was
thrown from the top of a foreign freight-car, owing to a defective brake
wheel, and injured his hip and shoulder. He is still unable to resume his
work.
