      Yesterday morning Arthur McGlade of this town received a telegram from Emporia, Kansas that his brother Michael J. McGlade had been killed on the evening before by a railway train. Deceased was a mail clerk in the U.S. Civil Service and the sad event took place while he was in the discharge of his duties, others also probably being victims of the same accident. Mr. McGlade left Perth about 20 years ago and was about 39 years of age and unmarried. His remains will be brought to Perth for burial. An announcement of this will be made when time of arrival is known.
