Morley Burrows

Killed By The Cars.

Morely Burrows, a young man 19 years of age, in the employ of Wm. Cheney as a farm hand, went to Michigan City Saturday to buy himself a suit of clothes. After making his purchase he started home on foot, taking the Michigan Central railroad track. On the way he was struck by a Michigan Central passenger train west-bound and due here about noon. The train was stopped and Burrow taken to Porter. He lived until Sunday morning, when death relieved him of his sufferings. Undertaker Lumberg brought the remains to his morgue in Chesterton, and the day following they were claimed by relatives. The funeral was held Monday at Furnessville. No Coroner's examination was held, as the relatives did not desire one.
