Accident on the Central.
Yesterday morning, about 12:30 o'clock,
a disastrous wreck occurred on the Illinois
Central road, which resulted in the death
of one man and the demolishing of a large
number of cars. The train was a wild
freight, and in coming down Dongola hill
it broke apart. The rear portion of the
train ran into the front section, throwing
several cars from tho track and telescoping
many others. Frank Dougherty, a brake
man, son of John L. Dougherty, of Mound
City, was killed, his head being almost
severed from tho body. Deceased was
well known in Cairo and had numorous
friends here who will sadly miss him. Tho
body was removed to Mound City for inter
