Leonard S. Warren, brakeman on night freight train from St. Johns, son of Mr. M. H. Warren, was found dead Monday morning, this side of St. Alexandre, having mis stepped probably, and fallen though the trestle-work, some thirty feet upon the rocks. He was twenty-six years old and leaves a wife and numerous friends. He was a faithful and trusted employee, as may be known from the fact that he was a returned soldier, with a proud record - severely wounded, promoted, honorably discharged and pensioned, and though scarred and maimed, still full of the self sacrificing, heroic spirit which only death could utterly subdue.
