The train left Macon at 7:10 and was due Id
Atlanta at 9:45 last night. A cloud burst
broke over that section of the oountry about
6 o'clock last night aud washed out a section
* of the track, nearly 100 feet in length. Into
this the swiftly moving train plunged.
The storm was Rtili raging and all the car
windows were elosed. The passengers, secure
as ibey thought, and sneltered confortably
from the Inclement weather, went to death
? without an Instant's warning. The train,
' consisting of a baggage car, second coach,
flrstclass coaoh and a Pullman sleeper, was
knocked into kindling wood by the fall.
Every person on the train except the occu'
pants of the Pullman car perished in the
For a brief time there was silence. Then
the occupants of the.Pullman car recovered
from their bewilderment and after hard work
managed to get out of their car and found
themselves on the track in the pouring rain.
Flames were alieady coming from that part
or the wreckage not covered by the water.
As the wreck began to go to pieces human
' - bodies floated out from the mass and were
carried down stream by the swift current.
The storm did not abate In fury. Flashes of
ii^htniner added to the steady glow of the
burning train and lit up the scene with fearful
Flagman Q,ulnlan, who was one of the first
to get out at once started for the nearest
telegraph station. Making bis way as rapidly
as possible In the face of the blinding
storm, be stumbled Into the office at McDonougb.
Word was quickly Rent to both
Atlanta and Macoo.
Nearly tbe entire male population of McDonougb
went to tbe scene to render assistance,
but little could bo done by tbe rescuers.
At daylight tbe bodies that bad floated from
tbe gorge were gathered up. One body was
found a tnlle from tbe wreck and many were
seen along Its banks.
A wrecking train was started out from Atlanta
at midnight. A special train at 6
o'clook this aaornlne took doctors, ministers,
railroad officials and helpers to tbe scene, but
nothing could be done save to gather up tbe
hfuilPH. J *
As the dead wete found they were removed
to McDonough. Some of the bodies were
terribly burned while others were crushed
beyond recognition.
Some may be burled at McDonough.
Others will be sent to their homes as fast as
the proper addresses can be ascertained.
Only three ladleH were on the train. Two
escaped. It Is presumed that tbe other
perished, but tbe body baa not been found.
Besides the regular crew of the train, several
couductors and other employes were enroute
to Atlanta to spend Sundav. All were
killed. Conductor W. A Barclay was lu
charge of tbe train.
A section boss with a gang of eight negroet
occupied seats In the second class coach. Nol
one escaped when the car went down.
Jesse L. Hohr had this to say :
"I was In the Pullman when th? wrech
occured. There was not an lnstant'i warn
lng. We heard suddenly an Indistinct crast
and tbe next Instant felt our car pltob for
ward and drop. The forward end ?X the cai

"Nearly all the material necessary to replace
the bridge Is on the ground, and within
24 hours after the material Is In place the |
bridge will be completed and trains running
again. The depth of the ravine over which
tbe bridge passes la so great as to require SO
feet piling and, we did not have any that

Flagman Qulnlan said tonight: "
"I was sitting In the front end of the sleeper

something was wrong. But before 1 could
think again I was Jammed into the corner
and a great pile 01 something fell on me.
I lought to gel loose from my plnnings, but
could not see a thing. It was as dark and
sliont as a grave. I turned my head in all
directions und finally 1 saw a place that
seemed less dark tbaa tbe rest of my surroundings.
I half swam and half orawled to
that place. It proved to be the upper rearend
of the car. I got on top of tne coach.
One of my lanterns was the only light still
The tracks on which we had been running
were fully 50 or feet above us. As soon as I
landed against tbe embankment I found tbat
the dirt was loose and would crumble under
tbe slightest weight. Iran up tbe railroad
track toward McDonough, listening every
minute for the whistle of tbe freight train.
i The operator got orders to hold everything."
Macon, Ga., June '24.?Miss Mamie Morrltt,
who Is a teacher in the Emerson school of
oratory, Boston, gave her experience as follows.
i !. hooon in rnin about the time we left
1 Macon and rained Incessantly all tbe way
up to McDonough. The conductor came
f through where we were sitting, In the rear
1 of the sleeper, and proposed to let down my
widow, as tbe rain had begun to come In.
As be put the widow down I reached over to
gather up my mackintosh, which I had spread
across my lap, and while I was bent forward
; the crash came.
Quickly looking up, I saw the conductor
i being thrown headlong toward tbe front of
- tbe car. I was on the left of tbe car, my friend
r was on tbe opposite side and the conductor
t was falling headlong over the seats on the
3 right That was tbe last I saw. Then I re.
memberod the car plunging down, down Into
i the water. The car turned over on the side
, on which I was sitting, and the next I knew
a Miss Alden was lying across me.
j "The water bad risen up to our waists and
) I noticed that Miss Alden's head was lower
c than mine and, fearing the water would cover
i. her, I took her In my arms and lifted her up.
i We both were wedged In and could not move
j our bodies below our waist. For some time
? too iiiv helDless and called for help, but
s none came.
t "MIsb Aiden had a steam pipe across her
e body and she wtw across me and I was
r further wedged down with a berth partition
g acroBH me. i began to pull the debris off with
e my bands, and wtien 1 had removed all tbat
n wax loose 1 took a wooden beam and prized the
t steam pipe from oil my friend. Finally I
e got it loose and relieved her of its pressure,
e I was still wedged down by the partition,
I got hold of another longer piece of wood
It and began to prize up tbe partition and ai
>f last puilod myself from under It. Then 1
i- orawled out In the open space in thecar, whert
d I could look out through tbe broken aper
s. ture.
t "I could hoc the embankment and tho rath
and the men who bad gotten out of the smoking
apartment standing and walking about
upon the embankment. I called to them,
and they paid no attention; but a negro porter
heard me and came to our assistance.
Hy his aid I mauaged to pull up on top of
the sleeper and crawl to the end next to the
embankment. I then called stain and again
to the men to help us, but they only cried
back, All right.'
"In the meantime Miss Alden bad gotten
on to the roof of the car, and after she had
fainted and a long wait a gentleman from
Atlanta came down the embankment and
tied a rope about ms waist and I was drawn
up the 6teep embankment."

serve daring.the June term. We only, bad'to ;
furnish one, Mr. C. L. ClinlucaleB, who was 1
on time at Abbeville Monday mornlDg to answer
to roll call. Th^Oourt was "short and sweet,"
The pqtit jurors were discharged s
Monday.evening. Judge O. W. Buohanan de- ,
serves, as be certainly gets, the thanks of the'i
Jurors, wltneMee, And all those bavlng cases :
In Court for closing it bo soon, as it would
have been a great loss, especially to tbe planters
to b&ve bad to spend even a few day*
away frtfta their farms at this particular tm
wheat in the bin.
Many.of tbe planters bave had tbetr ?MKL
threshed, and tbey are unusually well pltai*
ed with the result. IS to 20 basbels peron
has been no anoouimon yield, and tbe grain
.wasvery fine. Wbeat sowing bad been al~
naost entirely given up, for several years, by a
Itirst majority of our planters, ho that this
ImpMUat Industry was followed by a
HR9N&4?ffi*tbe borne livers, and they realmore
.than covered expenses.
L$st y?*r, however, there seemed to be a con lderable
revival along this line, and acres
pon acres were sowea to this valuable cereal,
and tapebrought forth bountifully,
wblcb, It is.io be hoped, wlllhave a good effect
lu tbe dtytto oome. Tbere are two planiters,
of wbom this writer has beard, whose
crops of wheat deserve special mention. Mr.
J. T. Latimer, with good preparation of the
(land and liberal manuring, made 41 bushels
Jrom 1J? bushels sowed. The other, Henry
Hmnfton, colored, made about 200 bushels.
" r 1 n a fomnrtqK1 a ohnirincr fnr o ahU
II man. This breaks the record. Perhaps
other colored man In the county ever
ed bo many bushels of wheat Some how
7 are all fond enough of something to eat,
eapeclally so of flour bread, but they do
not like to raise It,?had much rather raise
a good chance for a tubklc spirited
citizen to make an investment that
woui>d cause him to wish that he
had died when he was a babe. , (
Perhaps there is no plant that would more
stimulate tbe raising of wheat la this section,
than that of a first class roller mill. Now 1
wheat when raised has to be carried sacb long
distances to be ground that many fall to raise
It, as much or more on that account than any
other. A good mill would oreate a demand

all of tbe surplus, at a remunerative price,
and many of tbe now all cotton men wotald
raise wheat as It would bring In to them some
midsummer cash, which Is often badly need- 1
en, at this date. Now tbey have to depend i
upon butter, chickens, eegs and such minor
[ commodities to furnish the cash for their special
needs. Will not some enterprising man
lor men make the venture? From reports
Greenville, by this agency, wonderfully increased
the wheat production of that county.
They buy every bushel that is carried to
them, and give a good price for it, and a mill
or mills here, would do great things for this
section. We have as fine wheat lands as can
be found, and under proper management,
which an easy access to market and a ready
sale, which would be reached, by first class
mills, would bring about, would add greatly
to tbe value of our lands and the prosperity
of our country.

are being eaten with a relish, although too
