A lad named Murphy, employed as a driver on Watkins Bros.' wagon, attempted to drive across the Midland Terminal track at Anaconda in front of a train about noon yesterday. The team did not like the looks of the engine, and dashed down the street at a breakneck speed.

The driver was thrown out and struck his head on the hard ground. It was some time before he regained consciousness, and the physicians consider his injuries serious, though not dangerous. The wagon was reduced to kindling wood..
