Mrs. George Anger

One of the most shocking accidents that has occurred in this vicinity for a long time, occurred Friday evening. Mrs. George Anger went with her sister to Chicago Friday morning, and they with another sister returned on the night express, due here at 10:30. It seems from what we can learn that she had been dizzy while in the car, and then in her hurry to get off left the seat and passed to the platform out side before the train stopped, and while the conductor was bringing some packages for the party, she fell from the car, the wheels of the coaches passed over her, completely severing the head from the body. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. Rice in the church of this place Sunday forenoon after which the remains were followed to the graveyard., two miles east of this place, by her relatives and a large concourse of friends. Her sorrowing husband, with whom she has lived so happily since their marriage, four years ago, has the sympathy of the entire community.
