Two Men Run Over by a Train Fighting

Fairbury, Neb., May 12, - A doctor named ZEIGLER and George Browner were having a fight back of Colby’s billiard hall early this morning when the Rock Island switch engine, pushing a train of cars out of the way, ran over the two men, cutting off both ZEIGLER’S feet and injuring BROWNER’S right hand. Both men were under the influence of liquor. ZEIGLER has since died and it will be necessary to amputate BROWNER’S right hand.
