One of the worst wrecks for a small one that it has ever been our lot to see, occurred Saturday afternoon, four-and-a-half miles west of here. A steer thought he was "as big a man as the engine" and came nearly proving it, the effect being disastrous on both sides. The engine and tender were completely disabled and ditched, four empty freight cars were badly demoralized and two more ran off the track. C. S. Grindall, of the E S G Beaver creek ranch, engineer White and the fireman were in the cab and all escaped unharmed, though how they did it after seeing the wreck, is a mystery. The loss will be about $4,000.
