FOUND DEAD WHILE RIDING ON A TRAIN
Discovered Dead After the Train Left Kennett, the Body Was Removed From the Cars at Delta, Where His True Name Was Learned Friday Evening by Coroner Houston on a Letter Found in One of the Pockets. Albert Searles, a passenger on No. 16, the morning northbound passenger, died Friday on the train between Kennett and Delta. He had a ticket in his pocket from Red Bluff to Sisson. The conductor did not notice that the passenger was dead until after the train pulled out of Kennett. The body was taken off the cars at Delta and put in the freight shed to await the arrival of Coroner Houston.

Coroner Houston arrived at Delta at 8 o'clock Friday evening, and searching the pockets of the dead, found a letter addressed to Albert Searles, which is probably the man's name. A ticket from Red Bluff, to Sisson was also found in a pocket. The conductor had overlooked him and failed to collect his fare at the proper time, and when he did finally call on the passenger for a ticket Searles was dead. Up to 10 o'clock Friday evening no further particulars of Searles had been learned. He was aged between 60 and 65 years and was dressed like a workingman.
