Thomas Cantrell, a discharged inmate of the Soldier's National Home of Wisconsin, was killed at Newport, Pa., Saturday, by a fast train on the Pennsylvania Railroad.


A son of Thomas Cantrell, residing about three miles from Gilmans, in Sullivan County, was riding with his parents Thursday of last week on a lumber wagon, to which was attached a buck-board seat. The lad fell from the seat and before the father could stop the horses, the rear wheel had passed over the little fellow's body. He lived but a few minutes afterward. The child was aged four years.
