|M. J. Sanker, a conductor on the Cambria & Clearfield division, was killed at Amsbry on Tuesday, in a peculiar manner. Sanker was killed by the breaking of an iron ring on a freight car. To the ring was attached a rope connected with the locomotive, used in "drilling" cars. Sanker was walking along the car to which the death-bearing ring was attached, and when the iron suddenly divided into three pieces, one of the flying fragments struck the doomed man in the head causing a fracture of the skull from which death resulted in a few minutes. Sanker, who lived at Cresson, was aged twenty-six and was unmarried.
