Boy Killed at Johnstown.

A boy named Thomas Gallagher, son of Thomas Gallagher, of Cambria, was almost instantly killed on the Pennsylvania Railroad at Johnstown Tuesday afternoon.

He was walking along the railroad near the freight station, when a freight train came along, and he stepped off the track to avoid it and was struck by Way Passenger, due at 3:32.

The body was picked up, when it was found that the boy’s head had been crushed in. He was almost instantly killed. Two brothers and a sister of the deceased were killed at the Morrellville crossing two years ago.
