KILLED ON THE TRACK.--On Tuesday morning a man, name unknown, was killed at the junction of the Midland and Victoria Railways, at the north end of the town, by the Midland train from the north, running over him. It seems that he was walking along the Victoria track from the north, carrying a gun and accompanied by a brown spaniel dog. He walked close to the Midland train, which was moving slowly over the diamond crossing. The engine struck him and he staggered back a couple of yards, and then, as the train moved up, walked to a car as if to jump on, but fell between the cars, and the wheels passed over his body above tthe highs, killing him instantly. The body is lying at the Midland station. It has not been identified as yet. He is now lying in the freight shed of the Midland Railway, and has been seen by hundreds of people, but all to recognize him. The coroner refuses to hold an inquest, as he has no suspicion of foul play. The County Attorney also refused to order that an inquest be held. As he was killed outside of the corporation of Lindsay, the town will take no action in the matter. It is expected that the Midlrnd Railway will cause an inquest to be held to prove their innocence.

[After the above was in type we learning that the unfortunate man was a resident of Coboconk, named Arthur Hale. He was about 40 years of age, unmarried, and of somewhat disordered intellect.--Ed. F.F.G.]
