Frank Angevine, a well-known and popular railroad man in Lyons, was killed upon the Syracuse, Geneva and Corning railroad on Monday afternoon. He was baggageman upon the Lyons express and left the latter station at 8:55 o'clock on Monday morning. When the train was approaching Corning he climbed upon the top of the baggage car to unloosen the bell rope, and not seeing the iron bridge of the Delaware, Lackawanna and Western railroad, overhead, he was struck a terrible blow in the back of his head and the back and top of his skull was torn away. His brains, with an immense quantity of blood, gushed out and he dropped dead upon the top of the car. The accident was witnessed by no one, and the first that his companions knew of his death was when a short time later his corpse rolled off the top of the car and fell down into the Chemung river, over which the train was passing at that moment. As soon as the body was taken from the water, it was removed to Corning, where it was prepared for burial and placed in a casket. In the evening it was taken to his home on Shuler street in Lyons. Angevine was only 28 years of age, and left a young wife and three small children. They have been left completely destitute by his sudden death, and the railroad men in Lyons, who had an unusually high esteem for the deceased, are raising a purse of money for the bereaved family. The funeral will take place on Wednesday afternoon.

— The tragic death of Frank Angevine of Lyons, on the Syracuse, Geneva and Corning railroad near Corning last Monday afternoon caused a universal feeling of sorrow among all the employees of the road, with whom he was unusually popular. For some time he had been baggageman upon trains No. 25 and 6 on the S. G. & C. railroad, and his death occurred in the following manner: When the train was nearing Corning he noticed that the bell cord did not work well, and he accordingly climbed up on the top of the baggage car to remedy it. The train was then nearing the Delaware, Lackawanna & Western railroad iron bridge overhead. This he did not notice, and with his back toward the bridge he was struck full force in the back of the head by an iron beam in the bridge. The top of his skull was cut away in an instant, and his brains, with great quantities of blood, ran out upon the top of the car. A few seconds later his corpse rolled off from the top of the car and fell into the Chemung river, over which the train was then passing. This was the first knowledge his companions on the train had of the accident. The body was immediately removed from the water, and after being prepared for burial in Corning was brought to his home in Lyons. The deceased leaves a wife and three small children.
