Mrs. W. Deam, of Athens, is in critical condition at St. Joseph’s Hospital following injuries received Saturday morning when the wagon she was riding on was run down by a freight train backing from Goodrich to Athens on the Soo Line.

She was taking milk to the cheese factory and claims that there was no warning as the rear end of the brain born down on her. Her horse was on the crossing before she was aware of her danger. The wagon was crushed.

The injured woman was put on board a train and rushed to Marshfield. An examination at the St. Joseph’s Hospital showed several cuts and bruises about the head, broken right hip and pelvic bones, dislocated left hip and other minor injuries. She is 34 years old and has seven children.
