HEAD CUT OFF IN FREIGHT WRECK.

A head-on collision on the Rutland railroad took place Friday night in
the yard near the fair grounds of the Rutland County Agricultural
society and one man was killed and four injured, all railroad men. The
accident happened when an incoming freight drawn by two engines struck a
shifting engine which was taking cattle to the fair grounds. A fog
prevailed and the regular freight was two hours late. Harry Miller of
Rutland, fireman of the second engine of the double header, was killed
instantly, his head being cut off.
