Not to be Caught Twice

New York, 1895

Twenty years ago Jarvis M. Jarvis was struck by a train on the Merrick crossing of the Long Island railroad and lost a leg. Thursday while driving over the same crossing he was run down by a locomotive, but jumped in time to save the other leg. His wagon was demolished.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, May 10, 1895, p. 1.
