STORM PLAYS WITH TRAIN
Tornado Makes Mere Toy of Huge Can
ted Hbman Freight.
DUMPS THEM EASILY OFF THE TRACK
Fuirnirr Circa Graphic Oc.crlatloa,
Telling- of Mlracolon. Escape from
Any Injury of All 1
A train on a Burlington branch In the
mithem pnrt of the state wai lifted
bodily from the trark Tuesday evening and
hurled with titanic force to one Bide, where
It fell In a heap of wreckage after making
several revolution. A tornado was blow
ing at the time and the train, which waa
an accommodation running between Or
leans, Neb., and St. Francis, Kan., waa
a toy In the teeth of the storm, which over
took the ears near Wheeler, a small sta
tion on the Una. The rear coach waa filled
with passengers, but the fact that they
escaped without Injury la one of the mirac
ulous features of the phenomenon.
The train, which left St. Francis at 7:30
o'clock, ws.s making about thirty miles an
hour. The sky was overcast with dark
clouds when the train left the station.
A It neared Wheeler the sky lightened up
In front and the passengers noticed a fringe
of copper-colored clouda In the northern
horlron. The clouds were edged with a
constant play of lightning. A traveling
man named Albert Kahn waa a passen
ger on the train and gtves a graphic de
scription of the storm. He says:
"We were making about thirty mtlea an
hour. I should think there wera ten or
twelve passengers on the train. As we
approached Wheeler we noticed the sky
suddenly light up, It did not seem more
than five minutes after that when we
struck the atorm, head on. The train
trembled Ilka a plaything and then alowed
down. Finally It came to a stop alto
gether. Several women were on the train
and they wera almost frantic. I tried to
talk to one of them, hut the atorm made
ao much noise I couldn't hear my own
voice. The roar of the storm Increased and
the coach awayed. It had again grown
dark as night.
Everybody Is Seared.
"Everyone was frightened and naturally
we thought of the Colorado accident. A
thousand rnllroad trains would acarcely
make more noise. I saw from the llpa of
some of the women they wera screaming,
but couldn't hear a sound.
"Then we felt the Jar of the coach as It
left the track and waa dragged along over
the ground. There was another Jar. The
coach shook violently from aide to side,
then righted Itself and stood still. The
storm passed over aa suddenly aa it came.
After It had quieted down the passengers
got off and looked around. The engine
had remained on the track and was puffing
like some frightened monster. The freight
cars, which were partly empty, had been
torn from the rest of the train and lifted
bodily from the track, dragging our coach
with them for a few feet.
"The freight cars had rolled over several
times and had fallen at the side of the
trnck a few feet away. Most of the
cars were more or less wrecked. Our
coach was uninjured and the engine and
tender remained Intact After a long
wait another train waa made up at
' Wheeler and the passengers continued their
Journey. The Burlington did all It could
for the people. It lu a singular fact that
not a passenger nor a member of the
crew was Injured."
