Came To Grief.
An unknown man, beating his way on a freight, came to grief at Cathay. For a number of stations, every time the train stopped, he had been jumping off and hiding. When the train stopped there at midnight for water, the car he was on was standing on the bridge. He awoke suddenly and realized that the time for him to vacate had come. Without waiting to see where he would strike, he jumped from the car, and struck the water in the lake about 20 feet below. The water is at least 15 feet in depth. He received a slight cut on his hip and a good ducking besides, otherwise he was not injured.
