A silver quarter turned up in
Brooklyn the other day that beat
the experts. Some said it was a
counterfeit and others that it was
genuine. It passed through the
hands of several banking cashiers
and clerks and opinions differed de
cidedly as to its genuineness. It
was finally sent to the Treasury De
partment at Washington City and
after the usual dignified delay came
back with a judgment pronouncing
it a genuine coin.

Run Over and Killed.
A white man, a stranger, who
was evidently about 35 or 38 years
of age, was run oyer and killed last
n.ight, about 8 o'clock, at the Union
Depot yard. ' He was a passenger on
the 7:40 train and it seems had wan
uerea out; jjiTp-.tne. .vara t two, or
three hundred yards East of the de
pot, while waiting for the Southern
train to start. The shifting engine
for the W. C. & A. R. R., No. 110, was
engaged in making up, a train and
while baeking up the yard rat over
the unfortunate man. Both leg's
were cut off below the . knee and
there was a severe fracture, on the
side of his head. The remains were
taken up and to-day were interred
in a handsome metallic coffin. The
man was a stranger here and
the only means of identify
ine: him is by the name on
his trunk, which is that of W. F.
Mullen. He had in his possession
$10 in money, $9 in paper and $1 in
siiver a watch and chain, a bunch
ofkeys ofc, He was well dressed.
Coroner Miller held an inquest over
the remains to-day and the verdict
rendered by the jury is that "the
deceased, W. F. Mullen, came to his.
death by being run over on the. W.
& W. R. R., by engine No. 110, in
charge of Engineer W. F. Brandt."
It strange that the deceased
should have been out on the yard, in
a strange town, at night with an on-.
gine moving about on the different
tracks, and there s probabiy a mys
tery here. vhfcb, m,a,y Uever be clear
ed np. Oja.fi part of it, however, is
knpwn. It is a little word of two
syllables and seven letters, and they
spel "whiskey." ; V
The unfortunate man had been
drinking freely. He was from New
York bound for Charleston, at least
the ticket he held so stated Mr.
Fran k Kil day, th $ star of the 'Streets
of New York," Company, met him in
ha smoker on the train and he tells.
usthas the man drank frequently
on the. way down the W. & W. R. R.
He imagined that Mr. K. was a de
tective (nd told him. that he would
go back with him from this cit A?
oa tim.e he ran hia hand Wi ht

hjis iuqrey to. Mv Kilday WOQ 5?
course refused it, MrvK eWs that
the man was evidently crazed by
liquor and eailed the attention of
the porter to this effect. He after-
wartlS saw a man, another stranger, i
seat himself by Mullen and put his,
arm around him and talk to him fa-
miliarly and he thought that this
was his friend and that he would be
taken care of. What became of this ,
friend has not yet transpired. j
