POULTNEY, March 12.--Mangled almost beyond recognition the body of
Edward Ellis, 38 years old, was found this morning beside the Delaware
and Hudson railroad track near Martin's pond, a quarter of a mile south
of the Poultney station. It is supposed that Ellis was hit by the
Rutland-bound train last evening.
The body was discovered by the engineer of the early train out of
Rutland this morning. The train was backed to the Poultney station and
the proper authorities immediately went to the scene of the accident.
Parts of the man's body was found scattered along the railroad track for
a distance of several hundred feet.
Ellis was a laborer and boarded with Mrs. W. J. Ellis of South Poultney.
His home was in Brownsville, Me.
