Killled by Train

Two Guilford Men Killed. Joseph Wallace and James Moriarty Struck by Express Train at Green- field Yesterday Afternoon.

Joseph Wallace and James Moriarty of Guilford were struck and instantly killed yesterday afternoon as they were leaving Greenfield, by the express train from the south due to leave Greenfield at 1.48. They had been in the village on business and were on their way home when the accident occurred. Their bodies were thrown about 20 feet, the horse carried 100 feet and killed and the wagon smashed. The train, in charge of Conductor Moore, was halted, and the bodies taken to the station, where they were soon recognized. The crossing is a dangerous one. Down the track one can see some distance, but to the north the track is not visible for any great distance. The electric signal at the crossing is frequently out of order and fails to sound. Mr. Wallace, who was about 65 leaves a widow and several children, one being Mrs. Walter Weatherhead of Greenfield.
