Nineteen pOTMMM were instant
ly killed and 48 otliera injured
near Montz, 1.a., early today
when an excursion train on the
Ya/.00 and Mississippi valley iail
roud collided with a freight train.
The excursion train was filled
■witht pleasure seekers returning
to their homes after spending
Sunday in New Orleans. The
freight plowed its way through
several of the excursion coaches,
some of the bodies or the victims
being so badly mutilated that It
is impossible to determine either
sex or color.
The bodies of 13 unidentified
victims have been brought to the
New Orleans morgue. The death
list may be increased.
Thirteen persons were killed
outright, six later dying at tne

The dead Include seven white
persons, the rest being negroes.
The accident, It Is said, was
caused by a misunderstanding of
orderß. The excursion train had
stopped at a tank for water when

PHRENOLOGIST DISCOVERS WHAT WOODROW
WILSON HAS IN HIS WONDERFUL CRANIUM
Jessie A. Fowler, World's Greatest Phrenologist, Personally Examines the Winning Candidate's
Bumps for The Times.
The Times is most fortunate in being able to secure this analysis of Gov. Wilson's character by
Miss Fowler, the greatest of living phrenologists. She made an exhaustive personal study of the
president-elect's head recently in a New York photographic studio, immediately after the victorious
candidate sat for a portrait study. In this article she tells what she found.
Commissioner Woods Is on the
anxious seat today over the
floods in the low ports of town.
At East 52nd and I street the
water has been damned back by
street grading work, and there is
a large lake formed. This has
gradually risen until the water is
threatening three residences.
A call of alarm came from the
residents this morning, and
Woods has a large gang of men
out there digging to try to let
the water off, but it is rising so

President-elect Wilson, I find, is a peer among his fellows for
organizing ability and power to direct and block out work.
He is essentially a man of thought and reflection, and second
