Titus Mead

Melancholy Event.

A man aobut thirty-five years of age was found on the track of the Northern Indiana Rail Road, about three miles east of this place, on Friday morning last, with his skull badly fractured, and had one of his feet nearly cut off. He was still alive when found but senseless. He was brought to this town, and Surgical aid called, but his case was pronounced hopeless as soon as the extent of the fracture was ascertained by the surgeon. He died at one o'clock Saturday morning. His remains were placed in a metalic burial case, and taken to Chicago on Saturday afternoon, to be placed in a Vault until called for by his friends. From papers, letters &c., in his possession it is supposed that his name was TITUS MEAD, and that he or his friends reside at, or near Duanesburgh, Schnectady Co., N. Y. He had money and valuable papers in his possession. It is supposed that he fell from the platform of the train going east, about eleven o'clock Friday night. Three trains passing him during the night, but he was not discovered until morning.
