August 6, 1892  Saturday's Wreck  A few minutes after 11:00 last Saturday morning, the sleeper and last coach of the westbound Lake Superior Limited jumped the rails one mile west of McMillan, about 80 miles east of Marquette and tipped over, giving their inmates a great scare and a very severe shaking up.  Fortunately no one in either car was seriously hurt, the only case of a grave nature being that of Mrs. Lyon of McMillan who was picking huckleberries with her little boy beside the track and who was struck by the calling coaches.  The boy fell in the ditch when struck and was nearly smothered to death in the muck before released from under the car while Mrs. Lyon was taken to Seney for care, it being feared that her injuries were fatal.  At Midnight last night she was still living but her recovery was regarded as doubtful.  Conductor Loftus brought his passengers up as far as onota in the smoker and baggage cars, picking up a coach from the shop employes picnic there.  The following Marquette people were on board the train:  Mr. William Orr, general freight agent of the South Shore, William Noon, superintendent of bridges, Chas. E. Spencer, Mr. and Mrs. Williams, Mr. R. L. Archer, P. W. Phelps, and Jacob Dolf.  DSS and A Passenger
