Hit by Louisiana and Arkansas Train No. 18 Last Sunday Morning

Jim H. Hardy, age 23, living in Dubach, La., was killed by No. 18 Louisiana & Arkansas train at Morgan Spur, a few miles below Sibley on the morning of Sunday, May 24. His body was struck by the train as it passed that place in the early morning hours. Evidently he had fallen asleep, after sitting on a cross tie to rest. As his head was in his arms, undoubtedly he did not hear the approaching train. The train stopped, after the accident occurred and the train crew brought his body on to Minden. It was sometime before his identity was assured and after it was ascertained who he was, his father, a blacksmith of Dubach was summoned to attend his body and substantiate the proof already given.

Young Hardy had formerly worked in Smackover but had come to Dubach to visit his parents. While there he asked to borrow his father's car to drive to Heflin to visit a young lady in that town. Because of the fact that the car was in bad condition the request was not granted. He then caught a train going via Ruston and got on near Heflin, where he visited his friend. It is supposed that he left Heflin to walk to Sibley to catch the train going east to Ruston, for the purpose of returning to Dubach. The position in which his body was found indicated that he had fallen asleep. His body was prepared for burial by G. C. Butler, undertaker and later carried to Dubach, where interment was made in Henry Cemetery.
