A stranger named Henry Babbe was found lying in an unconscious condition beside the Union Pacific track near Clarks last Friday. He was picked up and cared for by the people of the town until communication could be had with the railroad company's headquarters. The company ordered him removed to Omaha, where he was placed in St. Joseph's hospital. It is not known whether he fell from a moving train or was struck by a locomotive while walking on the track.
He never recovered sufficiently to tell how the accident happened but died Sunday from the effects of the injuries.
Papers found about him show that his home was at Monticello, Ia., and the remains were sent there for interment.
