Crushed to a Shapeless Mass.

Doylestown, Jan. 18.—Edwin Beck, aged 20 years, who has been working in the Belgian block quarry near Quakertown, was instantly killed yesterday, eight tons of rock having fallen upon him. The rock was thrown 100 feet from an adjoining quarry. Beck saw the large stone coming and started to run, but tripped, and the rock fell upon him, literally crushing his body to a shapeless mass..
