Railroad Com- missioner of the .State, and partner with his father in the hardware busi- ness at Oweko; was returning from Binghaimton where his wife was visit- ing his sister, when his car went over the edge of an ‘eight-foot embankment along the highway.

Beneath the wreck, were the charred bones of a man, with some keys. some ‘coins, and a gold ring upon- a. finger bone. A Coroner’s jnvestiga- tion disclosed that the remains were thibse of Mr. Baker. and it was the‘ opinion that death had resulted from a fracture oi\the skull, rather than from the ! in the burning of the car.
