ST. LOUIS, Sept. 17.--The fast passenger train for the southwest, which left St. Louis last night over the Iron Mountain route, was wrecked today near Arcadia, Mo. According to reports received here two train men were killed and 15 passengers injured. The wreck is said to have been caused by the train, which was unusually long, leaving the rails at a sharp curve, the engine turning over down an embankment. Three of the forward cars left the rails but only one of these was badly damaged.
