Phil Welsh of North McGregor, brakeman on the Prairie du Chien division, was killed Friday morning at Bridgeport, Wis. He went out of the cab window on to the footboard nd walking to the end of it caught hold of the blizzard light which broke. He went under the engine and forty cars passed over him.

The remains were brought back to Prairie du Chien where Mr. Whalen took charge of the body and then removed it to Mr. Connell's home at North McGregor. The funeral services took place in the Catholic church Sunday morning.

He is mourned by two sisters and three brothers.
