Y., Dec. A shock ing accident occurred during the even ing on the New York Central between the St. Louis express aud the Niagara Falls special train. Seven persons were killed and a large numbeT injured. This accident was directly the outcome of the collision which occurred earlier in the evening in the tunnel at Sing Sin§. The accident blocked the road and trains were held at both sides of the tunnel. The weather was very thick •and this prevented the trainmen on the •St. Louis express from seeing the block ade in time to jjrevent the collision. The locomotive of this train crashed into the rear.of the Niagara express and several cars, mostly sleepsra, wore badly wrecked. To Add to the Horror of the wreck the boiler of the locomo tive of the St. Louis express exploded and the escaping steam did deadly work among the unfortunates who were in the wrecked cars. The scene at the wreck was indescribable. The train men lost their heads and ran out in a ffantic maimer, peering into the wreck at those who lay within, moaning and dying, but ding very little work toward rescuing the victims. Finally a num ber of physicians and citizens of this place ruaohed the scene and the work of rescue began. The dead and injured were placed on a special train and brought to this place. Owing to the •acifcunent it is impossible to get any thing like a list of the killed and in jured, It is stated that a number of the injured are likely to dit. The accident occurred about one mile north of Hastings at 8:45 p. m. The en gine of the St. Louis express ran into the rear of the Buffalo and Niagara train and completely telescoped the last sleeper which happened to be the Wag ner palace CAT Gibraltar. There were eighteen persons in the car and all but three were" either killed or injured. OVER A DOZEN DEAD. Terrible Colllsloa on th« Mexican South ern Railroad.

He is employed in the mines here, and when he fell asleep nine days ago he was im perfect health. When it came time to awake the next day he was still wrapped np in his bed clothes in a bank at the White Star lodging house. His friends did not bother him. Tho day passed and Leary was still asleep. His stupoif f defied the most vigorous bodily shakingj and clubbing. On the second da/ Leary showed no signs of awaking. .He snored and rolled from side to side, but his eyes were closed and he did not utter a word. Doctors were called, and used all their science to arouse the sleeper. Electric ap pliances were placed at his feet and a current of electricity strong enough to hurl an ordinary man out of bed was turned upon him. The sleeper did not appear to feel the shock. It was then thought that Leary had been hurt while at his work and that his brain was affected. Lest the sleeper might dio from hun* ger liquid food was poured into his Mouth and he was also given hyjoder mic injections. Day after day passed without any change in tho condition of the miner. Crowds were at the White i Star day and night to see the sleeper. Early Thursday morning Leary awoke. He yawned, kicked the clothes out of the bunk and asked why so many peo ple were in the room. When he was told that he had been asleep for nine days he laughed at his friends and said they were "joshing" him. He was in good health and went to work at $ o'clock. A NOVEL DAMAGE SUIT.
