A negro boy, 14 years old, was found dead, lying beside the railroad track at Kennesaw Friday night.  He and two other boys, we learn, had started to Chattanooga and after reaching some point above Kennesaw, two of them turned back; the other went on to Chattanooga.  A coroner’s inquest was held Saturday morning but no clue was found as to the cause of his death.  The boy who returned with him has been put in jail to await investigation.
