Brakeman Tuck Killed

George F. Tuck, brakeman, was killed at noon Monday in the Canadian National Railway yards at Swan River. He jumped from the Prince Albert through freight train as it was pulling into the station. He slipped, fell backward under the moving cars, and was killed instantly. Tuck was 23 years old and a native of England. He was a returned soldier and had been a resident of Dauphin for little over a year.

The funeral took place from Farrell’s Undertaking Parlors on Wednesday afternoon to Riverside cemetery. The service was conducted by the Rev. Philip Duncan.
