BUT NOBODY WAS KILLED
Miraculous Escape of Nearly
On an Illinois Central Train Near
A-tt OF TH0SE WHO WERE INJURED
An excursion train on the I. C.
railroad which left this city at 7:30
Sunday morning for Paducah was
wrecked a few minutes later upon
reaching Green's station five miles
from town. A broken rail gave way
while the train, consisting of a bag,-
gage car and four coaches, was going
slowly to allow the conductor to take
up the tickets before the first stop.
All except the baggage car left the
track and turned over into a ravine
on the south side of the track.the em
bankment being about ten feet at
The four coaches contained' 179
passengers and jt seems almost a
miracle that many were not killed,.
As it was sixty five people were more
or less injured, a dozen, or more so
seriously as to be disabled.
Those hurt, were th? following

All of these excepting Mrs. Twy
man, Miss Ransome and Dr. Fruit
were taken from the depot to tho
Hopkinsville Infirmary. The others
were taken directly to their homes.
The accident waadue to a broken
soil. Four coaches left the track
and rolled over the embankment,
three of them turning oyer and the
other falling with one end in the ra
vine. The two front coaches were
of steel and the front one was
dragged on its side for fifty yards.
The engine and baggage car did not
leave the track.
When the cars turned over the
passengers were thrown in a heap,
those on the right side falling on top
of those on the left seats. It seems
a miracle that nobody was killed as
the rear coaches were crowded, some
of the people standing up. The cars
even stood the crash well and were
not badly injured. News of the
wreck was at once telephoned to the
city and 'several automobiTes filled'
with physicians were hurried to the
Agent T. L. Morrow acted with
promptness and soon had an engine
and car on the way with helpers.
The injured people and other passen
gers were brought back to the city

feeling of relief when it was learned
that no one had been killed..

Committee To Solicit Stock
Held Meeting Saturday.
The committee appointed two-
weeks ago to solicit subscriptions to
the Pennyroyal Fair held a meeting
Saturday morning at the office of the
B. M. A.
The chairman of the committee
and the secretary were absent from
the city. Mr. R. E. Cooper was
made chairman pro tem and R. L.
There is no doubt es to the proba
bility of the stock being subscribed
and the committee is deeply in ear
nest. Taken altogether it is a body
of enthusiastic men and they all ex
pressed a desire to push, the matter
of securing subscriptions at once.
A committee, consisting of R. E.
Cooper, W. A. Wilgus and R. H.
McGaiighey, was appointed to have
printed at once a six, . or eight-page
folder giving the plan of organiza
tion, the county's need of a fair and
aH other imformation that may be
necessary to enlist the support of all
peop'ein-the city and County. These
are busy times and few men have
time to enter into details when they
approach a man to ask him to sub
scribe stock for anything.. Hence
the folders. The committee will at
tend, to the matter at 6nce.
Every man at the meeting had
something to say and tho outlook
was more than encouraging it was
inspiring and the work of this week
will cjunt for good.
The committee meets next Satur
day morning at the B. M, A. office
at 10 o'clock.
