On Wednesday iaft Mr. and Mrs.
Frank Goodman visited the family
of Mr. A M Freeze, at Mill Hill,
when a very exciting runaway oc
curred. On arriving at Mr. FreezoV,
Mr. Goodman alighted ar.d wp.s
holding the reins when the hore be i
was driving made a dart and adl
unning in an instant, witn Mr.
Goodman and a ten months old
child in the buggy. The animal
ran several hundred yards, crossing
two fences and a cotton patch be
fore Mrs. Goodman and child weie
thrown from the buggy. It looked
as if they would bedashed to death,
but providentially there w no
fatality. Mrs. -Goodman and child
vrere thrown about twenty fett
from the baggy. Mrs. Goodman's
foot was slightly sprained, other
wise no injuries were received by
herself or child. The buggy ran
for n-c.-'. distance on one wheel.
Tbr; ho reattached to the buggy
was one that Mr. Goodman had re
cently traded for. Mr. A M Freezs
advises everybody to know the
good, goalie qualities of a horse be
fore trading for one. He says the
escape of Mrs. Goodman and child
was miraculous. B j homo etock
