Lambert, Herbert (1893? - 2 AUG 1913)

About 7:00 o'clock last Saturday evening a bad accident occurred at Columbia, Clark County, Wis. Herbert Lambert, a Fairchild young man about twenty years of age, was the victim. Mr. Lambert was employed at the Columbia Pickle Factory, being temporarily in charge of the station. On Saturday evening he wished to go home, but found there would be no passenger train until Sunday noon. After conversing with the operator, and despite the warning given him by that part, he attempted to board a gravel train as it was coming out of the pit. He tried three times to get on the cars and in the third was thrown under. Both arms and both legs were cut off. He was picked up by the train crew, who made every effort to alleviate his sufferings, and taken to Merrillan in the caboose, where the doctor was on hand to attend to the injuries. He died about two hours after the accident.
