A man, name not learned, was run over and killed by the passenger train at Newton last night.  The particulars as told our reporter by the newsboy on the train are that the man was a section hand and that he attempted to crawl through under the foremost passenger car just as the train was pulling out, and was caught by the truck, which passed over him killing him instantly.  (The Wichita Daily Eagle, Wichita KS.  July 8, 1885.  Page 4).
