Killed Man Walking Near Track In
Linton Thursday Night.
----------
WAS  CARRYING  BASKET  GROCERIES
----------
          Elmer Hoops,  a miner of Linton, and living near the Glenburn mine, while on his way home Thursday night met death on the tracks of the Southern Indiana railroad.  Hoops was a man of about 35 years, and leaves a wife and four children to mourn because of his death.  Hoops was walking north on the west side of the tracks and was struck by a southbound freight train. The evidence shows that he must have been walking, as he was struck on the hips and head, both on the right side of his body.  The evidence further shows that he was braced on the ground because of the fact that his right shoe heel was almost torn off the shoe.  He was knocked about fifty feet and fell off the grade with his head down in the ditch and his feet up on the grade. Everything indicates that he was instantly killed, as there were no signs of him ever moving after he struck the ground.
          The gravel shows, where it was torn up, that he must have been walking right at the end of the ties, and how he could be that near the track, walking face towards an approaching engine with a headlight, and not see the engine nor the engineer see him, is a mystery. So far as we have been able to learn, the train crew made no report of striking any one, and if they had known, the train would certainly have stopped and made an investigation.  He was carrying a basket of groceries and they were found scattered between where he was struck by the train and where his body was found.  He was last seen in town after 11 o'clock, and the train is due here at 12:49 a.m.  No record was left at the depot to show whether it was on time or not.  It is not believed that Hoops was under the influence of liquor, as it is claimed he did not drink to the point of intoxication.  The victim was just one block from home when the awful accident occurred and he had only 30 feet farther north to go when he would have been off the right of way. He was not found until 6 o'clock Friday morning, when Dick Crichlow, who was going to work, discovered the body. Betty's note:  Below is a later article.

Died.
          HOOP --- On the16th day of February, 1880, in Fairland, of consumption,   Mr. Albert Hoop,  aged 27.
          Wife, sisters, brothers and kind friends stood about him during his last sickness, ministering to him by every means love could suggest.  Dr. Stewart exhausted the resources of the medical profession in his behalf.  The wife and relatives of the deceased return their sincere thanks to their many firends for their kindness toward him during his last sickness, and more especially to the officers of the Martinsville & Fairland Railroad, of which he had been an employe for the last seven or eight years.  His last words were, "God bless my little family.  I shall soon be with our dear parents, and I want you all to prepare to meet me.  I am ready and willing to die."
When the toils of life are o'er,
And our friends have gone before
In that land so bright and fair,
There will be no parting there.
