Newspaper published in: Providence, R.I.

Mr. Job LUTHER, the flag man of the P. W. & B. R. R. Co., stationed on Child street, was seriously injured yesterday about 2 o'clock. He was at his post on this occasion, waiting for the 1:42 p.m. train for Brist5ol, when a boy attempted to drive his team across the track, as the train was approaching. Mr. LUTHER seized the horse's bridle and endeavored to prevent him crossing, when he became entangled with the wagon, and was dragged some yards and mangled in different parts of the body in a shocking manner. He was immediately picked up and carried to his residence in a chair, and Drs. BULLOCK and CARPENTER called to attend him. (Warren Telegraph.)
