Full Text

The body of Mrs. Smith who was employed at the Vinemount Quarry, was found on the T.H.&B. tracks last Friday morning by some Italians going to work. Mrs. Smith came from Hamilton on the car reaching the Smith Mountain at 11 o'clock Thursday night, but from that time until about 4 o'clock in the morning, when it is supposed she was struck by a freight train, nothing is known of her movements. The body when found was lying lengthwise between the tracks on the main line, straightened out, and although one foot was smashed and the body badly bruised on the back, it seems remarkable how two trains could pass over a body and the features remain quite recognizable. Coroner Thompson and Constable Springstead were soon on the scene, accompanied by Coroner Simpson, of Hamilton. The body was removed to Hamilton and from there to Port Dover, where the funeral took place on Sunday. Mrs. Smith's untimely death came as a shock to her many friends at the Vinemount Quarry.
