B. M. (Mart) Phillips
was run down by a train in Waco last Saturday morning at 3 o'clock, and
died in the afternoon of the same day. Both legs were cut off
above the knee.
Details are meager as to the particulars regarding this deplorable
accident. Mart was night man at the ice factory near the railroad
tracks and it seems that he, with others, were watching a train load of
soldiers that was pulling into Waco, when he was run down.
Deceased was 27 years old. He was a son of J. H. Phillips
of this city. He is survived by his wife, two brothers and two
sisters. His brothers were working in the plant with him at the
time of the accident.
The interment took place at Millican, the home of Mrs. Phillips
, Sunday afternoon.
