CAUGHT AT A CROSSING.
A Farmer and His Two Daughters Meet Death While Trying to Outspeed a Train.

LIMA, O., March 7.– A terrible accident occurred at Sharkey’s crossing near this city, last evening, by which Lyman Hyde, an old farmer, and his 23-year-old daughter, Judith, lost their lives and Emeline, a 16-year-old daughter, was fatally injured. The trio were driving towards Lima and at the point named, which is at the end of a deep cut and on a curve, attempted to cross in front of a freight train. The horse balked and the frightened occupants of the buggy became too bewildered to even attempt to save themselves. Lyman and Judith were killed instantly and Emeline had her skull crushed.
