      From the Altus Times, 23 Dec 1909

      KILLED IN AN ORIENT WRECK

      Rue and Fieland Yield Up Their Lives at the Post of Duty

      One of the worst wrecks in the history of the Orient railroad occurred near Braithwaite a few miles south of Clinton, Saturday afternoon at 5 o'clock, when a south bound freight train turned turtle and went into the ditch, killing two members of the train crew, and dangerously injuring two more.

      The wrecked train was a freight, made up of engine, tender and six coal cars Saturday morning a crew was ordered out to take an engine to Clinton to have the flues of the boiler washed out, and as all the regular crews were out on their runs, a special crew Was made up of the switch gang in the yards. They made the run to Clinton, washed the boiler, and while preparing to return were ordered to take back a train instead of running light

      Everything went smoothly until the village of Braithwait was al most reached, when suddenly the engine turned over and the cars left the track It is thought that either broken or spreading rails were responsible for the wreck Foreman C W Rue, of the switching crew was instantly killed, also Mr Fieland, who was acting as helper. Engineer Jack Trumbolt's knees were crushed, and he received other injuries which will render him a cripple for life Fireman Walter Barker received painful injuries, his back being scalded by escaping steam, and he was badly bruised .

      Trumbolt was taken to Wichita Kas , and the body of Fieland to Kansas City. C W Rue and Freman Barker were both brought to Altus, where they reside Both are under the care of Dr Miller, the company's surgeon at this place They are getting along as well as could be expected The train crew are all well known in Altus, and the accident has cast a gloom over all their friends The injured men are receiving every attention, and it is earnestly hoped that they may recover [11]
