In a. Wreck on the Illinois
Central Clarence Rose
The following telegram ' from
Jackson, Miss., to the Commtrcial
Appeal of Tuesday, gives the details
of a distressing accident:
A fatal wreck on the Illinois Cen
tral Railroad occurred on Monday
morning at 5:10 o'clock about two
and a half miles north of Hazelhurst,
wherein one mau was killed outright
and four injured, c.-e mortally, but
none cf the passengers were hurt.
The train was the southbound fast
mail, running on schedule time, and
it jumped the tra;lc in rounding a
sharp curve on a down grade.
The train was well filled with
passengers and they were all shaken
up and frightened, but none were
injured. The passenger conches
never left the rails.
The heroism of Engineer Nelson
in sticking to his r.ost and reversing
the engine after it had jumped the
track, it is thought, prevented a
wholesale loss of lifp.
After the e;igme lell the vaiio Lne
coupling with the mail car broke
and that car and tbe baggage coach
were thrown several feet ahead of
the engine. Th.3 mail car foil to
the right of the. track' into a pond
where a drove of rauls wa3 being
watered, and three of the animals
were killed and two wounded.
O. E. Kosc, the mail clerk, was
pulled from the car in a dying con
dition, and lived only a few minutes
after being laid on an improvised
The opinion of the officials is that
the accident was caused by the dirt
and gravel being piled higher than
the top of the rails.
The body of Mr. Rose was car
ried to Hazelhurst and prepared for
burial and the motherof the unfortu
nate man, who was visiting in New
Orleans, ..nud ".ether relatives vrtre

bring the remains home.

The pall-bearers were Messrs. II.
P. Joyner, C. M. Brown, T. E. An
derson, Bruce Knox, N. P. Clark,
and J. A. Bergland, postal clerks,
and friends of the deceased.
Clarence E. Rose was the eldest
son of 11. D. (Sam) and Charlotte
Rose, to whom six children were
born. He was born at Middleburg
in 1869. In 1890 he was united in
marriage to Miss Lizzie Johnson,
by whom he has two children. For
the past eight years he has been en
gaged in the Railway Mail service
as postal clerk. A few years ago
he moved to Jackson and later to
Fulton, but nearly all of his life has
beeD speut in this county. Clarence
Rose was a noble yonug man; a
quiet, modest, unassuming christian
gentleman, loyal to his friends and
devoted to his family. His death
is a blow not only to his immediate
relatives, but to his friends every
where, among whom the editor of
the Bur.LEi'ix had the honor to be
included, and whose sympathy is
extended to the aClicted.
