Article Text:

St. Louis Mo., FEb. 5.--John MCCAUSLAND, aged 20, a recent graduate of the Virginia
University, who lives at Clayton, tried to board an electric street car in motion.
He missed his hold and fell between the motor car and the one following. His head
struck the granite pavement with fearful force, producing concussion of the brain.
The wheels of the second car passed over him, mangling his head and body in a
terrible manner. Passengers and spectators screamed and the car was stopped as soon as
possible, the rear wheel resting on the crushed body. The car was lifted and the young
man was taken to the hospital. He never regained consciousness and died at an early
hour this morning. The young man's sister, Miss Rose MCCAUSLAND, one of the most
beautiful young women in St. Louis, was to be married this evening to a son of Judge
HENDERSON, at Clayton. A large number of guests are in the city from Columbia, Mo.,
Richmond, Va., and other points to attend the wedding. The MC!
CAUSLAND family is one of the oldest in St. Louis, and is connected by marriage
with many of the pioneer families of the Mississippi Valley
