N'os. -t'J and Al .Meet Without Loss of Life hut 'I'm Ins Arc Considerably Smashed. A collision that might have been far more disastrous occurred at Asliby, n sta tion eight miles west of Hyannis, about 5 o'clock last Saturday morning when tho passenger trains, No. 43. westbound, and No. 42, castbound, crashed into cschother. The cause of the trouble is said to be the misunderstanding or misreadiug of the or der given providing for the meeting of the trains. No. 43 was in charge of Conductor Andrews, engineer and fireman being Messrs. Morrison and Johnson, No. 42 was in charge of Conductor Wright, with Engineer Phillips and Fireman Tillctt. At the meeting place the road curves, so that trains approaching cachother can not sec far enough ahead to stop in time to avert a catastrophe. All the enginemen in this case, thinking nothing could be done to prevent the collision, jumpcd.exc'ept Engi neer Morrison who stayed with his engine, reversed her and succeeded in getting his train in motion backward, but even then the engines struck with such force that they were thrown upward at an - angle of about forty-five degrees. It is said that but for his action far greater damages to trains, crews and passengers would have resulted. The tenders, baggage and mail cars were pretty badly damaged. Mr. Phillips was the only one o the trainmen that received an injury worth mentioning, he having some severe bruises on his head. None of the passengers were injured in the least, but two tramps who were riding in the door of one of the baggage cars were hurt, one of them getting his leg so I badly crushed that it had to bo amputated, while the other had a foot crushed consid erably and his toes cut off. The trains were delayed five or six hours in conse quence of the wreck. Notice to Alllnuci! CltUeus.

Quarantine may interfere with my itiner ary as planned. The extra ellort and ex pense I put forth to do India will be ap preciated, I am sure, as my India articles cannot be other than interesting. From Port Said I go to Cairo where I oxpect to receive the first mail in two months, or since I left Hong Kong. You may not hear from me again till I leave Syria as the mail posted in Syria is opened by the Turkish government, I am informed, and if I should make a drive at the Turks, I might bo detained to serve a term bo hind the bars at Constantinople."
