Killed on the Railroad
Daniel Kamerer, an old resident in this vicinity, was killed on the A. & G. W. railroad, near the Mercer street crossing yesterday afternoon at 1 o'clock, under the following circumstances:
Mr. Kamerer had made arrangements with a son of George Aldenderfer to go fishing, and was accordingly walking slowly down the track within a short distance of Mr. Aldenderfer's house, when the boy, as well as several others who happened in that locality, called to him that there was an engine coming; stepping to one side, when it is presumed the unfortunate man thought he would be safe, he proceeded to walk along the path when the train came upon him, the end of the pilot striking him on the head and killing him instantly.
The engineer gave repeated signals and the calls to him by the people of the neighborhood were loud enough to be heard by the unfortunate man distinctly, but, as is presumed, he supposed himself far enough away to escape the passing engine.
Beyond the bruises about the head no other cuts were received as he fell away from the wheels and down an embankment. His body was removed to the residence of his son-in-law, Daniel T. Seigfried, near the Fair Grounds. He was aged about 65 years.
