If it had not been for the presence of inind of Agent Gilmore he would have been cut to pieces. He tried to board the north bound passenger ti'aiu while in inotion and feil beween the cars with bis head and shoulders ocross the rail. -Mr. Gilmore grasped Hoelzle and pulled him back betwen the rail and the platform and held his head down so as to clear the steps. At this time Hoelzle made an effort to get up by throwing a leg out. Mr. Gilmore qnickly pulled this also into line and held Hoelzle down until the train passed. He got up without being iujnred and got ou tbe ;rain which had stopped. If he had uot been held down as he was he would ia%e been cut to pieces. As it was, jarring afew scratches, he was umuured.
