The engine was Mopped within a few
feet of the obstacle. The track waa
cleared, the train reaching the city
about half an hour late.
There are two opinions expressed.
One is that an attempt was made to
wreck the train by cutting the tree
across the track.
The other opinion and the one ex

It accidentally fell ncross the tracks.
The person then became frlghteuedand
This is probably the solution, as the
stump of the tree whs some thirty feet
from the butt, shoving that the tree
hit and bounced over the track.
The authorities, however, In view of
the fact that several of the trains (tim
