Death of Walter Parker

Mr. Walter Parker, a son of Lieut. J. F. Parker, of Villa Ridge, received fatal injuries at the gravel pit just this side of Villa Ridge Monday morning. The young man was in his 21st year. He had been at work at the hill where the Illinois Central is working its steam shovel or some time. A few days ago he entered the service of the company as a brakeman. He was an extra and worked when needed. He was wanted Monday morning and had just commenced work, when his foot was caught in the fatal frog and the train ran over him, crushing a leg, an arm and probably fracturing his skull. he was brought to Cairo at once and placed in the hospital, but died before noon. he was unconscious to the last. The remains were taken to Villa Ridge Monday night.
