The full extent of the disaster was revealed at daylight but the death list will not be complete until workmen have finished clearing the debris. According to trainmen on thefrelghti the powder was exploded by tne con cussion made by the passenger train which was slowing down for the sta tion at Sandford. Another theory la that gas escaping from oil pips lint nearbv entered the powder car and a spark from the passing engine Ignit ed the gas.

When the fire drove the rescuers awav they waltd till the fire died down and then started to drag out tne charred bodies. Men searched nearby fields and found pieces of human flesh and wearing apparel. Four badly mutilated bodies were found 'n the woods several hundred feet frbm the tracks. , One thousand feet of the track was torn up and a great hole shows where the powder car stood.
