"The shrieks of the injured mingled with the hissing of escaping steam. At the instant the crash came frenzied cries began to fill the air." It is no joking matter, but in three days of railway horrors it is to he «b served that the shrieks ami the hissing steam “mingle’’ and the cries invariably "fill" the air. These are stereotyped hits of description, bat are they true? L»» the injured shriek, and d »e$ a s mud ot wad ing come with the crashing ami tearing of cars ? Some people say not. A man who lay in a nest of grea-v trucks while eight cars haltered them selves to pieces and piled up a jagged pyramid over him gave his impression us follows: "First, merely a confused awakening, fori had been asleep; then an awlul sound of grinding and breaking some where above me in tlie pitch darkness; then a panse ami another sound of riin1 ping and fracturing, which seemed to last five minutes; t ten all at once a deep silence, broken only by a soft puff ing sound; then a sud len realizition that I was hurt and that s one liing hard was under my luck ; then Irani s one where away in the distance a shout or two and a call, ‘Bring up that lantern ;' then another pause, nothing heard but the coughing of the wrecked engine; then a slow ami dint effirt to analyze this sound and to remember what had happened before I woke up, and finally, like a flash, the thought that I was bur ied under the ruins of the car in which I had gone to sleep. ‘Even then I did not shout. I begun to grope ami crawl, ami finally I saw a pitch of .he night sky ami I dim »e*l to ward it, and when l felt the fresh breeze against my face, instead of reviving, I tainted, and the next I remember I was in the hospital. “Again I bad to think and th'nk be fore l knew how I came there. I could s ill hear the wet breathing of the engine and the cry, 'Bring that lantern.’ “They told me that every other man in the car had been killed, but I could not understand or appreciate what they said. “A month after th.it. when I cmld sit and coolly figure out iuy situation and the manner of mv escap-, the c dd sweat would come out on me.” A man who was in the third cmch at Battle Creek last Friday morning r-.de into Chicago Saturday afternoon and told some of the things he rememb red. ‘•The most horrible part of it all." said he. “was the interval of d.-ad silence which came between the awful slmck of^ the collision and tlie breaking out of ti e fire. I suppose nearly a I of us weie asleep. Those who were not knocked hall sense'ess by the terrific jolt, w re drowsy. Tlie lamps went out. I awoke to find myself in darkness, with a weight across my breast. I lifted it and fell to see what it was. It was a piece of wood with u torn end. “The silence was so deep that I could hear the rain beating on the roof and dripping down the windows. I got tip oil mv knees and began to feel about me. My hand touched some one else, but neither • f us spoke. I Imd not heard a sound in the car until then, but I began l . i it _ „t.. -r. _ iio near a BeiuiiiMiin- umnii i..v. ’-v I passengers were getting out front under the broken seats and the scattered splin ters. Sune of them were badly hurl, as I found out alterkrard, bm they did not groan or scream. They must have been like me—breathless, dazed and weak. “The first sound ol a human voice came when some one asked: * Whats the matter?’ “Another said : ‘We have fallen into | a river.’ “The noise of splashing water led me to think the same. At that moment the flames which had broken out in the cars ahead threw a dim light among us. All of us seemed to be roused to the settle of danger in that moment. 0 ie woman began breaking the glass I rum a window ; so she could crawl nut. Tne others did the same. Then began the shouts and imprecations. When i jumped I expect ed to find myself in the water. In the moment that I paused on the shattered sill I fully debated whether or not I would rather die by water than by fltme ■ and concluded I would rather drown ! than be burned to death. To my great joy I fell on cinders. “It seemed to me it had been a lialf i hour since I awoke in the daikiies-1, but it could have lteen only a few moments, for i the |>eople were just ruouiug up from the ! cars behind. *'l learned one thing about a railroad I wreck, and that is that you have to wait awhile for your shrieks and groans.” | When Brakeman Thot < — who, by j (lie way, lias never been f-nifnl—ijh*imiI n switch at Kingsbury, Iml.. ami sent a Wabasli passenger train headlong against a solid line of loaded freight car*, the indignant public Mlgge*led all sorts of puiii-dim ml for him.
