Runaway Coal Wagon

Milton Ames, a drayman of Fairmont, met with a serious, if not fatal, accident last week. He was hauling coal from the depot when the train came in. His team became frightened, and began to run away with the load of coal. In some way Mr. Ames was thrown under the wheels, which passed over him, breaking several ribs and otherwise injuring him.
