Was Decapitated by Train on New York Central
At Niagara Falls
Started to Cross Tracks at Second Street
When Gates Lowered

Ringing of Bell and Shrieking of the Locomotive Bewildered the Woman Who Was
66 Years Old. Train Struck Her and Her Head Was Severed From the Trunk

Niagara Falls, July 6 - Mrs. Armenia WERNER, widow of the late Sebastian
WERNER, of No. 542 Fifth street, was instantly killed at the Second street
crossing of the New York Central Railroad soon after 8 o'clock this morning.

The killing of Mrs. WERNER was one of the most shocking fatalities that has
occurred in Niagara Falls for some time. Mrs. WERNER had left her home to go
to the office of her lawyers, Cromley & Gittins. She walked down Niagara
street to Second and was crossing the tracks on this street near the depot. A
train was standing in the station, while another was approaching from the
Tenth street station. Mrs. WERNER was on the tracks when the gates were
lowered. This act seemed to bewilder her and she stood on the southbound
track, quite at a loss to determine which way to move. The whistle of the
approaching locomotive and the violent ringing of the bell are said to have
added to her confusion. She was struck and thrown to the track, the wheels
decapitating her. The train was stopped as quickly as possible, and the
headless and lifeless trunk picked up and carried into the depot.

Coroner SLOCUM was notified, and his investigation revealed her identity
through pension papers carried in her pocket. Mrs. WERNER was a woman 66
years old, and lived with her two sons, Frank and Fred, at No. 542 Fifth
street. She was born in Scotland, but had resided in Niagara Falls forty-five
years. It is understood the gates at the crossing were lowered after Mrs.
WERNER had passed the north side of the tracks, so that when she reached the
south side she was confronted by the barrier of the gates, which, it is
stated, had shut her in on the tracks. An inquest will be held.
