As is usual when a train is delayed, ex aggerated reports of a "wreck" were cir culated Monday when No. 1 was seen standing on the side track and it was learned that No. 2 had not arrived. The origin of the rumors and the cause of the delays was an accident which happened to No. 2, the east bound limited passenger train, and the Becond section of No. 15, a freight, at the Eldridge siding about 3 o'clock this morning. The trains had orders to pass at that station and when No. 2 pulled in the freight was making the siding. The passenger ran into the rear of the freight, however, before it cleared, tearing up considerable track, bumping several cars off the track and thus causing the delay. The engine of the passenger train left the track and so did three or four freight, cars. The mail car was somewhat smashed on the for ward end and was sent to the shops here for repairs. That is about the extent of damage done. Engineer Dan Thompson of the pas senger jumped when he saw that the ac cident was inevitable and in lighting received some severe flesh wounds about the arms and shoulder. It was reported this morning that his arm had been boken but later reports contradict story. On arrival at Jamestown Mr. Thomp son called Dr. DePuy, his physician, who found the left shoulder dislocated, about the only serious in jury from the accident. It was also reported with sensatational details of great variety that a tramp, who was taking a break beam ride, had an swered his last call. This report was riddled by the truth. It seems that a tramp was riding in a box car loaded with brick and when the accident occur red was badly frightened. He screamed loud enough to attract attention and* was found by train men up to his neck in bricks. He was extricated from his un comfortable position and stepped out thanking his lucky stare that he had es caped without a soratch. When the news of the accident reached here the wrecking car was manned and Superintendent McCabe and Dr. Ranken, one of the company's surgeons, went out to clear the track and look after any in juries that might have been sustained. So far as The Alert was able to hear the only injury sustained was that of Engineer Thompson.* Advertised Letters. List of uncalled for lettere in the post office at Jamestown.
