      Clarence Dennis Killed Tuesday Afternoon
      Clarence Dennis, aged 36 years, was killed about 2:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon near the Pennsylvania station this place. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Railroad Co. carpenter gang which was digging a ditch for an overflow drain, for the cast water plug and was throwing out dirt at a point 100 feet north of the depot.
      The jar from a passing train started a cave in; other men jumped and yelled to him but he was buried up to the neck by the fine cinders which packed so hard about his chest that he was suffocated. Rescuers worked to release him but he was black in the face when they got to him. The body was taken out with difficulty.
      He was born in Pine township Sept. 2, 1881, son of Mr. and Mrs. Alanson Dennis; survived by father, 1 brother, 5 sisters.
      The funeral will be at M.E. church Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. J.G. Ginader, interment in Linesville cemetery.
