locomotives, went rolling down the
ten-foot embankment. Firo broke out
almost immediately in the wreckage,
and although a number of tho injured
wero saved by the desperato efforts
of tho train crew and surviving pas-
sengcrs, tho greater part of those who
were pinned down in the debriswore

through the wreckage so rapidly that
It was impossible to save a number
of people who were but slightly hurt,
but wore held fast by timbers. Thoso

of tho disaster utterly unable to lend

forty-five wero burned to ashes.
A largo number of tho relatives of
