i A destructive wreck happened on the B. &
M. , four miles eastof Button at7:30Thursday :
morning. Freight train No. 77 , running
twenty-five miles an hour , had its rear end
run into by the flyer , which was running at
the rate of fifty miles an hour. The latter
had two engines and a snow plow on the
front engine. As the snow was drifting and
flying thick at the time it was impossible to
see anything ahead. The flyer struck the
train ahead with full force , sweeping the
trucks from the under side of the freight
cars , scattering them like chaff , bending the
mils and crushing ties for many rods. The
engineer on the front engine sat at his post
and with his fireman escaped unhurt. The
second engine of the flyer was thrown off
the track sidewise bodily to the distance of
thirty feet and lit on its side. Her engineer ,
John G. Roberts , fell under the engine and
was killed instantly. As he lay pinned to
the earth under his engine his hand grasped
the steam guage with the grip of death. Fire
man Udell was also injured and died shortly
afterwards. The last freight car that was
struck stood on top of the engine bodily. It
was filled with cattle , nearly all of which
were alive. A platform was built up to the
car and the affrighted animals were tumbled
out. The baggage and express cars and
siroker were thrown off the track and smash
ed up. As near as can be learned there was
something wrong with the order on which
No. 77 was running. None of the passeng
ers were hurt
