Both engines were completely demolished

attempt was made to wreck a south bound
passenger train on the Chicago, Kansas &
Nebraska Road at Banford. a station all
miles eaat of Topeka, Kan. As the train
was coming around a curve, at tne rate oi
thirty .miles an hour,, the engineer saw
mat the switch was open. He put on his
brakes and reversed his engine, called to
his fireman to follow him, and jumped
from the cab. The engine ran into some
empty cars that were standing on the
track, and while smashing them was it
self completely wrecked. : No lives were
tost and none of the passengers were in
jured. An examination of the open
awitch showed that it .bad been broken

wrecking the train. The purchase of the
