A. H. Lund

A. H. Lund, a tramp painter, was struck by a wild train on the Lake Shore road just east of Chesterton Tuesday between one and two o'clock. He was walking on the track, and when the engineer pulled the whistle to scare him off, the man simply turned around and threw up both hands. The engine threw him considerable distance, inflicting fatal injuries. From papers found on the person it was learned that the man had a wife and child in Chicago, and was 32 years old. He was tramping in search of work, and unlike the true tramp, walking instead of riding the bumpers. He was treated by Dr. Callahan, and then sent to the County house. When about twenty rods from this asylum, the poor fellow died.
