A. K. Griffith of Lincoln, Neb., sus- I
tallied the loss of a carload of cattle in
a very peculiar way. He shipped forty-eight
young animals in a large cat
to Silver Creek, Neb., over the Union

engine in some manner became lodged
in the bedding of the car causing it to
flame up rapidly. The forward por

accident was discovered and thu train
was brought to a stop. The cattle
penned in the car became frantic and
those near the lire were burned while
many of those at tho other end and es
pecially in the middle of the car were
injured by the wild efforts of the ani
mals to escape. When the trainmen
opened the door of the car the cattle
jumped out and almost without, an ex
ception all that jumped were injured
