But for a timely discovery the Bur
lington passenger train which left
this city Tuesday afternoon at 3
o'clock would have been thrown from
a trestle into a slough half a mile
this side of Baratow, says the Moline
Mail. The heat of the sun had warped
the rails so that they were sprung
out of line and the wheels could not
possibly have followed them. The
train was running slowly at the time
and was easily brought to a standstill
when (lagged. The accident was most
peculiar. Tbe sun beating down on
the track at this point had expanded
the steel rails until there was no long,
er space at the joints for their elonga
tion and then they bowed out. Both
rails curved outward to tbe north a
foot, tearing out the spikes in some
places and tbe others moving tbe ties
and all out of line.
