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 PEOPLE YOU KNOW. Citizens and Visitors Briefly Mentioned.
