MICHAEL McMANUS
______

Is Instantly Killed by a Piece of
Falling Timber.

     This morning, at 7:50, Michael McManus was instantly killed by a piece of timber 12x12 and 20 feet long falling on him. The gang of men at work on the Santa Fe railroad bridge about a mile from town, under charge of Mr. Humphrey, went to work this morning, according to the testimony at the coroner's inquest, and divided its force--part to work on the bridge, and the others under the bridge or on the ground. The passenger train on this road going south leaves the depot at 7:45, and in a few minutes after leaving, passed over the bridge. In about three minutes after the train had passed, the men from below called to the men on the bridge to come below. Mr. Harroll, a witness, stated that when they got down, they found that a stick of timber 12 by 12 inches and 20 feet long, which had been standing upright against the bridge, had fallen and struck Michael McManus on the head. The men raised the timber off of the prostrate man and found he was quite dead. Upon examination, it was found that his jaw and neck were broken, dying instantly. It is supposed that the jar of the train as it passed over the bridge was the cause of the timber falling.
     Mr. McManus was about 32 years of age and is from Pennsylvania. He had been with the present gang of workmen about nine months, and is spoken of as a sober, industrious and good man. His remains were taken to Undertaker Smith's to await the action of the coroner's jury, which sit this forenoon and returned a verdict according to the facts as given above.

DEATH OF MRS. SADIE CRILL
________

A Sad Case of Destitution.

     Mrs. Sadie Crill, from Cherokee country, came to the hospital Monday, dying with the consumption. She came here, no one seems to know exactly why, sick, with four children, the oldest a fourteen-year old girl. They were encamped in a tent near the river at the time she was admitted into the hospital.
     She gradually sank until death relieved her of her misery yesterday evening. George Grimes is the grandfather of the children, the children are the fruit of a former marriage. He is said by the little girl to be well-to-do. He lives in Cherokee country. The girls says that if the children can get money enough to take them to Kaufman, they will find a friend in Judge Dillard at that place.
     A subscription is being made up for their relief and to defray their expenses to Kaufman after it is ascertained that they have friends there. Their grandfather will be, if not already, notified of their condition. It is a sad case, and if friends or relatives of the children do not come forward to their relief they will have to be provided for.

DESTITUTE CHILDREN
__________

Picked Up and Cared For by
Will Coe.

     At the time of the death of Mrs. Crill, the HERALD detailed the destitute condition of the four children left to the charity of the public until friends could be communicated with. Somehow the charitably inclined people failed to interest themselves in the matter, except to talk a good deal and not act [at] all. It came to the knowledge of Deputy Sheriff Will Coe, that the children were drifting about over the city seeking food, when he proceeded to look them up. He found two of the smaller children in the river bottom, one in East Dallas and the other in the southern part of the city. He gathered them together, took them to a kind hearted lady who took them as boarders for a few days. Clothing was purchased and the little people were washed, cleaned, clothed and fed. Mr. Coe has written to their grandfather, Mr. Grimes, to Judge Dillard and two uncles of the children, and mailed the letters to-day. Mr. Coe has done nothing more than any man ought to have done who was able to do it, but he has the thanks of everybody for acting with such promptness.
