ORR, Robert

Robert Orr, the fireman injured recently in the wreck at Comstock, died of internal injuries at Cumberland, Wednesday night.  He was attened by a couple of his brothers B. of L. F. at the last moments.  His mother and sister, from Minneapolis, were also present.  The number of accidents and deaths occuring to railway employes demonstrate the danger of the employment, and that no branch of the train service considering the work, and attendant dangers is yet fully remunerated.
