Cow Killed on the V. & T. R. R. -While the engine "Carson" was coming up from Empire on Sunday afternoon a young cow which had been scared off the track by the steam whistle, jumped in front of the locomotive just in time to get knocked down and run over. Of course she was almost instantly killed. Two empty "flats" were thrown off the track by the accident. The animal belonged to Mr.Fulstone, ranchman. Doubtless the Railway Company consider it cheaper to pay for an occasional cow than to fence the track. We believe the matter is in the way of settlement between the company and Mr.Fulstone.
