Whatever may have caused the mis

history of the overhead railroad in

train on the Ninth avenue line was
switched off to the Sixth avenue line

his trai: along at a high rate of
speed. The first car swung around
the right angle curve, ho!ding to the

train behind. Then the strain became
too great. The couplings broke, the
scoond car was whirled about almost
end for end, and to the 'horror of
those who looked o.a from below,
