SHOCKING RAILWAY FATALITY AT TREORCHY. At about 9.30 on Monday evening, an accident occurred on the Taff Vale Railway about a hun- dred yards above the Treorky Railway Station, whereby a man named James Davies, a batcha- lor, about forty years of age, residing at 8, Howard street, Treorky, met his death. It ap- pears that the driver of an up passenger train noticed the body of a man, badly mutilated, lying near the metals. On the arrival of the train at Treherbert, Mr Davies, station-master, Treorky, was telegraphed to, and in company with some of his staff, proceeded to the spot indicated, where they found the body in a shocking state. The deceased's head was liter- ally smashed, and the brains were scattered about the place. His right leg was completely severed from his body, and his arm was in a mu- tilated condition. It is conjectured that de- ceased intended to make a short cut across the railway and river to get home. It is not known whether he fell across the railway, or whethei he was sleeping. It is also not clearly known as to when he was run over, as three passenger trains passed down just at that time. The second train stopped at Treorky, but the other two trains ran through. No information has been elicited from either of the guards or drivers. In a few minutes after the body was found hundreds of persons assembled on the spot. It appears that at about 8.45 deceased was seen on the Taff field conversing with some young ladies. Deceased was one of the oldest workmen in the Ocean Collieries, having been in Treorky for 25 years. He was a native of Cardiganshire. Deceased \1 to a little time ago,was one of the most faithful followers of the Treorky (Royal) Male Choir, who attended his funeral, which toek place on Thursday. — 0
