sleeper. When tile train reached God
frey it was running at full speed to
make up time. The crow of a freight
train that had preceded the Meteor left
the switch open, and the passenger
train jumped the track and rolled down
a slight embankment. The sleeper turn
id over, and so fast was the train run
ning that the engine and the forward
baggage ear landed nearly sixty feet
off the roadbed before it stopped. The
sleeper remained upright, and none of
the passengers in this ear was injured.
Ti it* baggage ears were completely
v reeked, and the smoker was badly
damaged. Five of those killed were in
tile forward end of the smoker, and
fottr of them were killed instantly. A
news agent, who was badly mangled,
