NARROW ESCAPE.--Wednesday afternoon Mr. John Costello was walking along the trestle work north of the Midland railway bridge when a freight train suddenly turned the curve and bore down rapidly upon him. He at once saw that it would be impossible to reach either end of the testle work before being overtaken by the engine, so he he jumped to the ground, a distance of about thirty feet. He was stunned for a time, but shortly afterwards recovered and walked to the Benson house. A bad shaking up was all the injury he received.--Post.
