Instead of four. ,
Thi morning was dull and misty in
the Sow Hampshire mountains and
the long freight train with a score of
heavily loaded cars lumbered up tho
long grado toward West Canaan at
the usual speed. On the other sIdeof
the curve waa the Quebec express,
sliding down th single track wjth her
load of pas.spngers nnd the four heavy
sleeporB In the roar. Tho freight
train was on a straight piece of track
about a mile In length, and tho Que
bec express had rounded a curve Into
this stretch when the two engineers
saw tho headlights of tfie onposlto
train burst out of the fog. .lidth en
gineers set tholr brakes and Jumped,
while the two locomotives crashed
Into each other and, locked in a llrm
embrace, rolled Into the ditch.
The baggage car In the rear wob
hurled hack Into the passenger couch
like a great rum, and tore It asundor
from end to end. As It did so the rear
end of tli 8 car roso up so that when It
stopped at thu forward end of tho
snioker, which was behind the passen
ger coach, It was well Inclined. Only
u few windows were broken In th
smoking car and none of tho I'ullmaus
The Ill-fated passenger coach was
crowded with more than 50 pooplo.
Shortly beforo tho uccident a few of
the, men hud gono back Into tho smok
ing car In tho rear, leaving tho wo
men to set a little sleep. One of those
who escaped said that as the train
was rounding u curve hojiio one In the
front of tho car began to king, po Mutt
nearly every ono wns awake vwheu .the
crash came. Those who were In the
other cars recovered tholr dazed
serines, Jumped out to the side of tho
track and hurried to the demolished
yhssengor couch, where groans, cries
and shrlokw were rending the air. i
Fortunately with the englnos off to
one aide, the wreckage did not take
lire and add further horror to the ul
r .My dreadful scene. The train
hums, ably seconded by the passon
j!trs from tho sleeping cars, groped
tholr way among the ruins ami began
the work of rescue.
The ncehlent was not without its
