John Sent

Section Boss Killed by a Train.
John Sent, a section boss on the Grand Trunk railroad, living at Stillwell, Laporte Co., was instantly killed Saturday night by a fast freight. He was taking several laborers on his handcar to the Swift ice-houses at Mill Creek, and did not observe the train until it was so near as to compel the men to jump for their lives. They all escaped without injury except Sent, who attempted to remove his car. He leaves a widow and two children.
