As the South-bound passenger train was rounding a sharp curve north of Mannington Tuesday evening it struck a man named Nat Fox, killing him instantly.

Fox was very drunk and had taken a seat on the track to rest himself. Before the engineer could stop the train, he was upon the doomed man with the results as above stated. Fox was well known in this county, and his sad fate is much to be regretted.
