Centerville, Ia. Oct. 25. -- (Special) -- The Council Bluffs & Kansas City mail train, No. 1, on the Chicago, Burlington & Kansas City railway, was totally wrecked shortly after 1 o'clock yesterday afternoon.
The wreck occurred two miles east of Exline, in Appanoose county, near the Missouri line. There were from thirty to forty-five passengers on the train, and while none were killed outright, over a dozen were seriously injured and the first reports say five will probably die.
All of the seriously injured are being cared for in farm houses near the scene of the wreck. Owing to the inaccessibility of the scene of the wreck and the fact that the patients are scattered over a considerable territory, it is difficult to obtain reliable information and it is more than probable that a number of the most seriously hurt are dead by this time.
