Railroad Accident
   On Saturday night, between 9 and 10 o'clock, when the passenger train on the Mobile & Ohio Railroad was some distance this side of Citronalle, the boiler of the locomotive exploded. Beyond the destruction of the engine no injury was done except slightly scalding the engineer. The freight train came down soon afterwards and took the passenger train along with it.
