Tiffin, O., Oct. 10. - Frank Stoner, a brakeman on the Big Four, met with a serious accident last night. He tripped from a defective shoe sole and fell off a box car on the track, landing on his head. He was rendered unconscious, but recovered just in time to roll off the track so that the train did not pass over his body.
