Sad Deaths of Two Sisters

Miss Mamie Cooper and Sister, of Near Bealton, Struck by Engine 15 of Southern and Killed

Last Sunday afternoon as a party of young people were returning from making social calls two of them were killed by train No. 15 when they were within sight of home.  The fatal accident occurred near Bealton when Miss Mamie Cooper and her sister, to avoid No. 44 on the north bound track, stepped immediately in front of No. 15 which was south bound.

Two years ago their father, who was employed as track man, was killed in almost the same place, in the same manner, by the same train run by the same crew.
