BURY MOORE AT BREESPORT FARM
Exertion Caused Death of Unfortunate Man—County Farm Folks Didn’t Know He Was Coming.
The funeral of Lynn Moore was held this afternoon at the county farm in Breesport. The Rev. Nightingale of Erin conducted the services. The man was buried at the county farm.
Moore’s death was the direct result of over-exertion in walking from the Breesport station to the county farm which is some distance and mostly up grade. He was suffering from tuberculosis and other diseases and the walk was too much for him. They did not know at the county farm that Moore was coming or would have met him at the station. He was sent there on the 4 o’clock Lehigh train Tuesday afternoon and died shortly after his arrival at the farm.
Moore was the man who was picked up by Officer Stewart here several nights ago and found to be suffering from a tubercular hemorrhage. The police were at a loss to know what to do with him. He was sent to St. Joseph’s Hospital but could not be kept there on account of the contagious nature of his illness. A solution was finally found when he was arrested on a technical charge and sent to the tramp house at the count jail.
Moore was an Elmira man and had lived here a long time. (handwritten on article Sept. 16, 1915)

CROSSING TENDER IS KILLED STEPPING IN FRONT OF TRAIN
Jacob Miller is Struck by Another Train After Flagging For Freight at Crossing at Lackawanna Between West Junction and Big Flats—The Body is Brought to Elmira.
Jacob Miller, aged seventy, was instantly killed at 10:30 o’clock last evening at the Lackawanna crossing of the West Junction-Big Flats macadam. This is the second grade crossing west from West Junction, the first being the Erie Railroad crossing.
Mr. Miller was employed as night flagman at the crossing. Mr. Miller had been on the crossing to flag motorists and other vehicles when a west bound freight train approached. The freight train had passed the crossing and Flagman Miller stepped to the east bound track. He had not noticed the approach of a rapidly moving light freight train and stepped in front of the locomotive. He was knocked down and mangled under the wheels of the train, death coming instantly.
County Coroner Charles N. Hammond was notified at his home in Elmira Heights and hurried to the scene of the accident. He interviewed persons witnessing the accident and will probably return a verdict of death by accident.
