A Shocking Death..................... H. C. Lee Killed by the Iron Horse



Friday afternoon as the 12:5_ Omaha bound train crossed Tenth street it struck the old man H. C. Lee, who was crossing the track at that time, knocking him off the track and killing him. He was picked up by the train men and taken to the Missouri Pacific freight office, where he lingered until 1 o¹clock when he expired.

He was in his 94th year, and was probably the oldest white person in Atchison. The passenger train was due to leave Atchison for Omaha at 12:00, but was delayed here fifteen minutes in loading an unusually heavy run of baggage. When the train reached the east side of the Tenth street crossing, Engineer Finaucano saw Lee walking south across the tracks on the west side of the street. He was badly bent with age, and was seemingly unaware of the approach of the train. Finaucano blew the whistle, but Lee did not hear it, and walked straight ahead. The train could not be stopped, and Lee was caught and thrown to the side of the track. He fell upon a projecting tie, and it was evident that he had been mortally wounded. The train was
