Montgomery.ŚW. L. Tarpley, white, aged 40 years, boarded a Western railroad train yesterday morning en route to Tuskegee. Before the train had gone 100 yards he fell from the platform under the wheels and was fun over and killed. He died a few hours later.
The dead man came to Montgomery from Birmingham, but no one knows anything about him as he had no letters on his person except a telegram addressed to him at Starkville, Miss. His body is being held in Montgomery.
