Benton Brooks

Another man killed on the Pan Handle road; this makes 10 that have been killed within one half mile east of Hebron station since the road was built. Benton Brooks was found about 1 o'clock on the morning of the 5th of July badly mangled by being run over by the cars. He went to Chicago on the 4th and came home on the late train and got off with a good many others, seeming to be all right and was not seen again until 1 a. m. next morning, a brakeman was looking for a hot box on one of the cars and found him under the cars badly mangled. He and Smith who died under the influence of chloroform a few days ago tented together in the swamp and both died in a few days of each other.
