Death On The Rail.

Adairsville, Ga., Feb. 12—[Special]—There was a sad accident here this afternoon, in which Mr. W. W. Adams lost his life. He was attempting to uncouple cars of a freight train, on which he worked as train hand, when his foot was caught under a rail, and he was dragged under the moving cars. He was badly mangled, and died a few hours afterwards. His home was at Dalton. The unfortunate man’s brother, James Adams, was conductor on the train.
