After going about a mile and a half, and before he had time to escape, his vehicle was met by an extra train, which had on board the "Examining Committee," run into, and he so terribly crushed that he died of his injuries in a short time thereafter. The two boys who were with him on the hand-car, escaped injury. Mr. Dinon was one of the oldest and most valuable section masters on the road.
