Case Reversed

Waverly, Nov. 24.—The appellate division of the supreme court has handed down a judgement reversing the decision of the supreme court in the case of Frances Shipman as sole administratrix of the estate of Rufus Shipman vs. the Lehigh Valley Railroad Company.

Mr. Shipman was killed near the Erie depot in Waverly in September, 1909, while standing near a peach car on the siding. The case was tried in supreme court in September, 1910, before Justice Lyon, who granted the defendant a non-suit, and from that judgement the plaintiff appealed and has been granted a new trial by the higher court.
