RIVER ATE BANK AWAY.
Tho train was running at the
speed of 35 miles an hour when it
reached the line of track, a quar
ter of a mile in extent, which had
occn undermined and washed
away by the Missouri river. Into
this spaco the train suddenly
plunged, though passengers say
that they felt the shock of the
grinding orakes, At the point
where tho derailment occurred,
tho track is practically straight
nnd the river makes no percepti-
The river had eaten its way 50
feet beyond the inmost rail, and
no vestige of track remained vis-
ble. When the engine struck the
water it hurled itself forward,
carrying tho oaggage and mail
car and sleeper with it. The bag
gage car crashed on top of the
engine, and the two were forced
deneath the water, the engine be
neath the water, the engine being
ing completely submerged and the
baggage car standing on end in
the water. The mail car over
turned in the water, and the clerks
were forced to climo over the
wreckage before they could get
to safety. Every one of them was
injured in some degree by the
ESCAPE FROM DEATH
News of the wreck reached this
city early Sunday morning and
caused much alarm, as four of the
mail clerks on No. 4 were Mont

families reside here. Word was
soon received by wire that while
all of them were scratched and
bruised, none of them were fatal

simply miraculous," said Miss Ma

L. C. Smith of Richmond, Va
who with his wife was returning
Irom tho Seattle fair, was one of
the first to go to tho rescuo of
the injured in the smoker.
'The escapo of the mail clerks
was nothing less than a miracle,"
declared Mr. Smith. "Their car
landed on top of the submerged
engine and this aided their es
cape. Tho roof of this car was
broken, and they managed to
brawl out and swim to Bhore. We
had to provide them with dry gar
ments. I gave them almost every
thing I had in my suit case. It
was not a time to think of your-i

its trailing cars went over the em

the reach of the country boys and

quainted with the needs and also
the possioilities of the country
chools, realize most fully the im
provement and progress that
hould no made and the import-
ance of laboring in hearty co-operation
for this improvement.
I am sure every teacher in
Montgomery county, as well as the
ounty superintendent stands for
progress and for a higher stand
ard of schools for better things
ducationally for our country boys
and 'girls. The country is a great
place for boys and girls to grow
up, and these boys and girls are
eserving of the very oest that
may bo had for them. So let us

I heartily endorse these recom
