A STRANGE RAILWAY FATALITY.

SYDNEY, Thursday. James McHugh, an hotelkeeper at Uralla, was killed at the Armidale railway station to-day. He missed the mail train, and went to sleep by the fire in one of the station rooms. At 2 o’clock this morning an official woke him up in order that he might go on with a special train. McHugh ran on to the platform and fell on to the rails. He was knocked down by the engine and killed.
