A MAN BEHEADED. Run Over By A Tramcar Near Shepherdstown— Barn Burned. [Special Dispatch to the Baltimore Sun.]
SHEPHERDSTOWN, W. VA., Nov 2. — A young man by the name of Walters, about 18 years of age, was instantly killed last Saturday evening at the Virginia Ore Bank, about six miles east of Shepherdstown. He was employed in the ore mine and was run down by one of the tramcars and had his head cut of. The unfortunate man lived in Maryland, opposite the ore bank.
Saturday night the barn on the farm of John C. Flanagan, in the same locality, was destroyed by fire. Cruzen Link is the tenant on the place and he lost all of his farming implements, harness, etc., and 1,100 bushels of wheat was destroyed. There was no insurance on any of the property and the loss will be very heavy. It is supposed that incendiaries started the fire, as Mr. Link had a short time previously shot shot at a couple of men who had been stealing chickens and apples from his place.
Mrs. Clara Henson, wife of Mr. Alexander Henson, died at her home, in Shepherdstown, yesterday from typhoid fever, aged 30 years. Mrs. Henson was a former resident of Hagerstown. She is survived by her husband and two sons.
