On the 27th ult., Lew Vincent, a brakeman on Conductor Law's passenger train, in passing from the express section to the mail end of the car on the outside, while near Bismarck, lost his grip and fell. The car was moving at the rate of twenty miles an hour. No one saw the fall, and Vincent had been unable to tell how it happened. It had not been discovered that any bones were broken or any internal injuries (serious) sustained. He was unconscious for some time.
