TRAIN NO. 7 KILLS
AND MAIMS 12 CATTLE.
Train No. 7, Geo. A. Austin engineer,
killed and maimed forty-two head of
cattle at Buda Tuesday ovonlng. A
feeder living near that place bad ship
ped In two cars of feeders, about fifty
head, and after unloading them at tho
stock yards attempted to drive them
over tho crossing. Tho owner had
beon warned to look out for approach
ing trains, but ho apparently heeded
not tho advlco for ho drove them on
tho track Just in timo for No. 78 en
gine, moving flfty-flvo miles nn hour,
to plow Into them, with tho result that
forty-two of tho lify woro either killed
or malned. So great was tho impact
that - ono of tho stcors was thrown
against the block signal post with such
forco as to break off tho post, which
wbb embedded In a cement founda
tion. Just how tho cattlo managed
to bunch themselves so that so many
wore hit, Is hard to determine Tho
front of tho onglno was a mass of blood
and hair.. Tho speed of tho englno Is
tho only thing that saved a derail
ment and a bad wreck.
Engineer Austin has beon running
an englno for forty yearn,- but novor
beforo had ho caused such havop to a
bunch of cattlo.
