Narrow Escape. --The Lewiston Journal, Me states that a few weeks ago Mr. Levi Gould left his house in Auburn early in the morning to cross the river. He told his family he thought he should cross the railroad bridge. But his wife told him he had better not, as she dreamed the night before that he attempted to cross the bridge and was run over by the cars. Regardless of this warning, he went, and while on the bridge, the cars, in backing over from Auburn, struck him a quartering blow, wmpted to cross the bridge and was run over by the cars. Regardless of this warning, he went, and while on the bridge, the cars, in backing over from Auburn, struck him a quartering blow, which knocked him down and threw him across the track. His presence of mind enabled him to put his feet up against the side of a freight car and throw himself off from and between the rails, where he laid till the train passed over him, inflicting a number of severe bruises upon various portions of his body.
