Daniel Corwin

Last Saturday night about 8 o'clock, as a freight train started from our station eastward. Daniel Corwin, a young man who had been working for Mr. Lewis on Morgan Prairie at threshing, and during our County Fair sold cider on the fair ground, got aboard between two cars it is said to steal a ride to Wanatah, but when the train was about a half mile east of the Normal School he fell between and under the cars so that a wheel ran over his hand, arm and shoulder, crushing them so as to disable him from moving more than to get off the track. He lay there in terrible suffering all night, but was discovered early Sunday morning by some of the Normal students who were walking along the road, to whom he told the above and they signaled the early eastward newspaper train, which stopped and took the poor man back to our station where he was put in care of Trustee O'Brien and started for the County Asylum, but died on the way near the Sugar Loaf Bridge. Coroner Paramore was notified and held an inquest on Monday, eliciting the foregoing facts.
