The worst freight wreck which ever happened on the White Mountain division of the Boston & Maine railroad occurred just above The Weirs about 12 30 o’clock last Saturday morning. Two men were killed almost instantly and four more of the trainmen were seriously injured, while two locomotives were demolished -and twenty or thirty freight cars and their merchandise piled up into a confused heap on the track.
