Point Of A Gun


James Turner Fell From Moving Train at Gassman West of Here Sunday Night and Dies in the Hospital.

James Turner, a brakeman on the Great Northern, was so badly injured near Gasmann {sp} Sunday night that he had died at the county hospital Monday afternoon from the effects of his injuries. Turner was walking over the train and when near the end of a car, the air brake failed to work. The train was jerked and the man fell between the cars. He was rolled and pushed ahead of the car for quite a distance, his leg being terribly bruised and he was injured internally. He was picked up and brought to this city at once and placed in the hospital. Physicians worked over him for several hours doing their best for him. He was delirious most of the time before he died. He was a Mason and asked for his Brethern {sp} to be with him when he died. He was thirty-two years old and very popular with all who knew him. He leaves no family. His sister, Mrs. Downing and her husband arrived from Glasgow Monday and Tuesday night his remains were shipped to his old home at Woodville, Wis.
