A BRAVE OLD MAN'S DEATH.
Attempts to Save a Boy and Both
Are Killed By a Train.
N. J., Dec.17The Cincinnati Express train, which was half an hour
behind time, while running at the rate of forty miles an hour through
this city, struck a wagon driven by Terence Hickey, fourteen years old,
at the George-street crossing of the Pennsylvania Railroad at six o'clock
this morning. Moses Ryno, aged sixty years, saw the danger and went
to the boy's assistance, but was too late. The train rushed around the
curve, struck Ryno and threw him off the embankment, instantly killing
him. It then crashed into the wagon, part of which was deposited in
the front of the ladies' waiting-room at the depot. The boy was found
dead, wrapped in a blanket, firmly fastened on the cow-catcher. His
skull was fractured and brains were oozing from the wounds. Ryno was
the father of a large family. He was formerly a policemen. The gateman
at the crossing was not on duty.
