gaid lo the wrecking ol the train 011 the
Illinois Central road by the storm that
visited the northern pai t of Ibis State 011
The train was tunning along tit the
rate of about twenty-live miles an hour,
and had reached a point one mile this
Ride ot Neoga, tt station some twenty
miles north of Centralla. 'I he rain was
coining down In torrents and the wind
blew a perfect hurricane. The middle
car of the train was lifted fairly oil' the
track, It being the llr-t to go, ami the
balance ot the train, Including the engiiui
followed. Tim middle car of the train,
wheru It was landed, lay lltteen feet
from the truck. The pilot of the engine
was pointed toward the track, w hile the
tender lay next the baggage ear hi the
dittJi. The rear end of the sleeping car
was throw 11 into a small culvert, while
the expres car, In which Mr. Dudley,
our Informant, was at work, lay at the
foot of the embankment, whlcli was about
Ix feet high, on Its roof. The ears were
very slightly damaged, the couplings all
Tlure was twenty-three people, in-
11 ciuuing seven laiues aim ono ciiiiu, oe-
sJdcstho ttaln hands, on the cars at the
time of tlto wreck, all of whom wero
more or less Injured, though nono wero
hurt fatally. Among them were Mr. W.
K. Ackeruinn. auditor of the road, and
his wlte. Mr. Ackorniau had his collar
Lone broken and his shoulder di-located.
Mrs. Ackcrintin was also pretty badly
bruNcd. The only person family
wounded was a hrakctnan.
One ol the most remarkable and com
mendable acts that has been chronicled
for many a day was that peifonned by
the colored sleeping car porter, whose
liaino we could not learn. When his
ear was thrown over, one of the hat
hooks was run into his eye, tearing It
out, and really hanging him upon the
side of the car. Ho extricated himself
and seeing Mrs. Ackerman unable to help
herself, seized her hi hU arms and car

that It will not be accepted as satNlac

perfectly Justified hi accepting anything
above the usual salary paid to the person
previously occupying your position, that
might have been ollcrcd you. Hut per
mit me to question your claim to the
prlucipalshlp of a negro school, If that
claim Is Intended to embrace the colored
schools ol our city. I scarcely need call
your attention to a fact you so
lTill iimler.-tand, but excuse me for re
minding you line, that Prof. Alvord is
retained as principal ami superintendent
of the Cairo district schools, ami that you
hold your position as a teacher In a lie
gro school, under him. Therefore, MNs
MclL, your reputation as "a principal
ol a negro school" will not he

you should ever tind tin object on a level

if I had thrust this "iiislgiillieaut mal-

their compensation N an equivalent for

The admission of the colored element
