Wednesday morning, Anson Tiffany, while sawing wood at Warren Hawley's saw mill near Bristol Center, slipped, and in putting out his hands to support himself, placed his right hand over the rapidly revolving saw. A portion of the little and index fingers were taken completely off, and the flesh on the palm of the hand was badly lacerated and torn. Dr. B. T. McDowell of this village was called and dressed the wound.

There was an epidemic of runaways Wednesday. Fred Classey's horse became frightened near the railroad in the forenoon, but was brought to a halt before damage was done. About 4:30 o'clock in the afternoon, the coach team owned by Mrs. Catherine O. Lansing, in charge of the coachman, Peter Cowan, and drawing a large sleigh containing several young ladies, was overturned at the corner of West Gibson and Main streets. The young ladies were thrown out but not injured. The horses took fright and the driver clung to the lines until dragged opposite the Congregational church, when he let go his hold and the team sped down Main street. They turned into the courthouse square, where they collided with a tree. The sleigh was considerably damaged, but otherwise it was a fortunate runaway. A dray horse owned by W. H. Spencer started away from the New York Central freight house without permission a few minutes after the former runaway. It ran to the barn, crossing the railroad not much too soon to escape being struck by a locomotive.

WIFE VS MOTHER-IN-LAW - Mrs. John C. Hoefler Brings Suit Against Mrs. Geo. A. Hoefler.

The circuit court at Rochester has been occupied in part this week with the $10,000 suit of Mary E., wife of John C. Hoefler of Geneva "for alienating the affections of her husband."  W. E. Edmonds represents the plaintiff as counsel, Hon. Thomas Raines appears for defendant.  The Union describes Mrs. Hoefler junior as "an unusually pretty young woman, who told her story to the jury in a manner that made an evident impression upon those intelligent gentlemen."

A bright little son of the plaintiff accompanied her in the court room.  Mrs. Hoefler as a witness told her story of wrong sufferings, as thus reported by the Union:

She testified that she was married in June, 1888, to John C. Hoefler.  The wedding was at St. Mary's Church in this city and was a brilliant occasion.  The couple began housekeeping in this city, and the prospects for a happy wedded life seemed bright. But a cloud in the shape of a mother-in-law overcast their summer sky, and dark days began for the young wife.  The mother of Mr. Hoefler came from Geneva on a visit and undertook to reform the domestic economy of the young housewife. Angry words passed sometimes between the young couple and in these domestic frays the experienced mother-in-law took the side of her son.  Finally the elder Mrs. Hoefler went back to her home in Geneva.

The plaintiff's complaint affirms that the mother-in-law began a course of cruel treatment directed against the young wife, which finally culminated in her leaving the house and obtaining a legal separation from her husband.

An order was obtained directing Mr. Hoefler to pay $4 a week alimony for several months and then suddenly and mysteriously disappeared.  That was two years ago, and since that time Mrs. Hoefler says she has not received one cent of alimony.  The plaintiff charges that Hoefler's mother, the present defendant, furnished him with money wherewith to leave the State and aided and induced him to abandon his wife.

Young Mrs. Hoefler told a sad story in response to the inquiries to her attorney.  She stated that she was 27 years of age and had always lived in this city with her parents until her marriage to Hoefler.  After the removal to Geneva, she said, her husband began to drink more than was good for him.  At her pleading with him and to please her, Mr. Hoefler swore off and made an attempt to quit drinking.  While in a drunken frenzy her husband had frequently threatened to do her bodily harm and she feared that sometime he might take her life.  "Indeed," said she, "on one occasion he drew a revolver from his pocket and said to me:  "If you go out of the house, I will blow your life out."  I snatched the revolver from him and ran out.  When I told his mother what he had done, she said 'It's good enough for you.'

"Another time," Mrs. Hoefler continued, "I told him I thought we ought to break up housekeeping.  He said, 'I'll break up housekeeping for you,' and seizing a china set in my room, he broke it in pieces.  He also broke a lot of furniture."

The two pretty little children of Mrs. Hoefler played about the court room during the trial and had the effect of exciting much sympathy for their mother's case.  While the children were playing tag about the judge's desk, a court attendant approached to take them away.  "Let them stay," said Judge Rumsey, "they're all right."  The general general impression among the spectators was that the presence of the children in the room would have a decided influence upon the verdict of the jury.  

Young Mrs. Hoefler was upon the witness stand all the forenoon, and for nearly two hours stood the fire of cross-examination from Mr. Raines.  At intervals she broke into tears and sobbed hysterically, but on the whole endured the ordeal bravely.  She testified upon cross-examination that her father had offered her husband and herself the use of a house free of charge.  They came back to this city and Mrs. Hoefler procured her husband a position in Graves' candy factory.  After working there a short time, he became dissatisfied and they returned to Geneva.  Just before their little girl was born, Mr. Hoefler struck her on the cheek, being angered at some trivial occurrence.

Monday afternoon Max. Fergancia of Seneca Castle tried to drive across the street railway tracks before Grieve's bakery when the cutter was overturned. He was thrown out but did not lose the reins. The horse started rapidly down the street drawing the overturned cutter, and Fergancia, who was hanging to the reins and sliding along on his stomach. The horse was stopped before the Tillotson block, and those who saw the accident were surprised when Fergancia got up uninjured. He was thoroughly soaked, however, from his contacts with the slush and water.

Alleged Case of Bigamy -
For several days past rumor has been rife that Chas. E. Haas, who recently married Miss Allie Proudfit, daughter of John H. Proudfit of Geneva, is a bigamist.  It turns out that he is under arrest at Buffalo on such charge. He was married about a month ago to Miss Proudfit at the Yates hotel, Syracuse. The couple were offered, as we understand, a home wedding by her parents, but she chose the method adopted.  It is on complaint of the first wife, so rumor goes, that he has been arrested at Buffalo and will have to stand trial for bigamy.  Mrs. Haas No. 2 is now at the home of her parents on West Lewis St.  She is an estimable and fine-looking young lady of some twenty summers, rather romantic in nature but of spotless character.  If she has been the victim of a bigamous scoundrel, the latter should be made to suffer to the full extent of the law in such case made and provided.

Two Runaway Wifes -
The Rochester Democrat gives a sensational account of the freaks of two young married women of Canandaigua, which runs about as follows:

Mrs. William A. Davis, aged 17 years, left town on Thursday, according to this story, in company with an older friend, Mrs. Emma Lynch.  Neither woman observed the formality of informing her husband of the intended trip, and hence after a day or so of patient waiting, Davis and Lynch instituted a search for their missing spouses.  They are described as handsome and vivacious women.  They were easily traced to Rochester, where they were followed and found on Saturday by Davis.

Mrs. Davis was almost overcome with surprise at meeting her husband so suddenly and so unexpectedly, but in a moment her face was wreathed in smiles, and she embraced him.

"I'm sorry I ran away, Billy," she said, "but I meant to come back, and if you'll hold the baby a little while and wait for me in front of the Christian Association rooms over there, I'll be back in five minutes and explain it all to you."

Davis believed his wife, and he took the child in his arms, and waited in the cold where his wife had told him to.  But she failed to reappear, and at last accounts the husband and child were still waiting.

Why Mrs. Davis left her husband nobody seems to know, not even Davis, who says it is a very mysterious affair, and that his wife must have been either hypnotized or drugged.  "But I'll find her," said Davis, emphatically.  "While these artics last, I'm able to travel a good ways and keep at it pretty steady, and if I can find any way of getting rid of my girl for a little while, I'll give my wife a hot chase after all."

Lynch, it is reported, says he doesn't care whether his wife ever comes back.

Early Saturday evening a team belonging to John E. Dwyer was left standing before the Journal office, when suddenly they became aware that they were working overtime, and started down Niagara street toward the barn. The novelty of being their own driver was pleasing and they therefore decided to go around the square before turning into the barn. They sped down Pleasant street, out Phoenix to Main, and after depositing what remained of the sleigh against a pole in front of Wilcox's store, they hurried across the street and were just going through Gilbert's show window, when a little man on the sidewalk saw them coming, and not having time to get out of the way, grabbed them rather than be trodden to death under their feet. After shaking him around some and not being able to discourage the little man, they quieted down and consented to be led away.

On Monday, Mrs. Elizabeth Waas, wife of Henry Waas, was arrested upon a charge of assault in the third degree preferred against her by Morris W. Hanna. Mrs. Waas and her husband had been a tenant on Hanna's farm and on Monday were moving, when Mr. Hanna called at the house. What happened as related in the plaintiff's deposition follows: "I knocked at the door; Mrs. Waas opened it, and I told her that I wanted to look over the house; I went to step in and she drew back and hit me very hard in the mouth, making the blood flow quite freely. Her husband then came to the door and threatened to kill me." Mrs. Waas appeared before Justice Frary Tuesday and demanded a trial by jury. She gave $100 bonds to appear for trial next Thursday.



Last Saturday morning, Mrs. Charles Van Buren was painfully burned at her home on Bristol street. While baking in the kitchen her clothing came in contact with the hot stove and was ignited. She removed the garment which she supposed was the only one on fire, but in a few moments discovered that there was still fire in her clothing. She frantically attempted to tear the garments from her, but they burned faster than she could remove them, and, with the clothing burning upon her back, she sank into a chair unconscious. In this condition she was found by her stepdaughter a few minutes later. Mrs. Van Buren's back was burned to a blister, and had it not been for the timely arrival of her daughter, the house would probably have been consumed, as burning pieces of cloth were lying about the floor when she arrived. Mrs. Van Buren's injuries were very painful for some time, but she is now well on the road to recovery.

Attempted Suicide at Canandaigua -
The suicidal mania has again struck Canandaigua.  E. M. Chapman, an agent for the American Wringer Co., of Syracuse, who lives with his wife and three small children on upper Bristol street, sought an exit from burdensome life with a razor Saturday evening.  The couple have not lived happily together, both being dominated by jealous natures, and the evening in question the domestic strife had been unusually bitter, impelling Mrs. Chapman to the police station to prefer a charge of assault against her husband.  During her absence, Geo. Snooks, a business partner of Chapman, entered the house and found the man holding over a basin his left wrist which had been gashed, severing an artery, which was bleeding copiously.  Snooks rendered what assistance he could and shortly afterwards an officer, into whose hands the warrant had been placed, arrived and took Chapman to the station house.  Monday afternoon he was arraigned and discharged.  The couple have agreed to separate, and Chapman will reside in Dundee; they both charge infidelity and each claims to have incriminating evidence to support the accusations.  It is doubtless a case of contributory fault, in which it would be a delicate matter to apportion the blame.  Repository-Messenger

Bristol springs, N. Y. - John Trembley
is getting used to surprises. His relatives and friends to the number of 30 came to visit him on the 11th inst. and found him pruning grapes regardless of the fact that his 42d birthday had arrived. The day was pleasantly spent, and the party left behind them some useful tokens of their esteem in which they hold their host. Occasions of this nature will leave a bright spot in the memory of even a sidehill farmer.



Saturday morning Albert Stewart left a team of horses standing before the residence of Charles Van Buren on Bristol street. He had but left them when they started up the street at a mad pace. Near Mason street they collided with a carriage containing Superintendent Ballin of the Keeley Institute, and a driver. One of the runaway horses jumped into the rear of the light carriage. The occupants were thrown out, but escaped with slight injuries. The carriage was completely demolished.

James Barry
of Fisher's met with a serious accident Wednesday evening. He was returning from Turk hill with a commercial man, while descending one of the hills in that vicinity, the breeching to the harness broke and the horse commenced to kick and run. Mr. Barry held on to the reins till one line broke, and as he found he could not control the horse, he jumped from the buggy hoping to catch the animal by the bridle; as he struck the ground, the full weight of his body fell on the left foot, breaking both bones just above the ankle, crowding the ends of the bones through the skin. He was taken home and Dr. Mead called by telephone. The horse cleared the buggy and was caught near Fishers. The agent was somewhat bruised, but was able to go to Mr. Baker's for assistance. The fracture is a bad one, and it will be some time before Barry is able to be on his feet.

Last Friday afternoon, Edgar D. Cheney, a carpenter, living northeast of the village, fell from a scaffolding at W. D. Crandall's new cottage at Gage's Point, breaking his back. Cheney was employed by Percy Dunham, and was rearranging some planks composing a scaffolding, when he stepped upon a thin board. It gave way and Cheney fell to the ground, a distance of eight feet. He struck upon the back of his neck, and the force of the fall fractured the lower vertebrae of the spinal column. Cheney lay doubled up where he fell, and his fellow workmen thought that he was dead. He was revived, however, and medical aid was summoned, and on Saturday morning he was taken to his home. It was at first feared that he would die, as both legs were completely paralyzed, and the vertebrae of the spine so displaced as to render it impossible for the man to sit in an upright position. The paralysis has now nearly disappeared, and Dr. Buell, the attending physician, thinks that the patient will recover. Cases of patients surviving a broken back are very infrequent, and although it is expected that Mr. Cheney will recover, he will doubtless be crippled for some time.



Allen A. Royce, of this village, who is perhaps the oldest living printer in this section of the state, yesterday celebrated his 83d birthday by calling upon old friends. Mr. Royce is in robust health and looks as young as he did twenty years ago.



Monday afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Vincenzo Sanzone, Italians of Geneva, were driving up Main street in a frail and rickety carriage. When near Parrish street the horse became frightened at a passing street car and shied to one side of the road. The wheels broke and both occupants were thrown out, together with twelve dozen eggs which were in the carriage. The woman was unconscious for some time after the accident, but when Dr. Beahan arrived she was revived and found to be only slightly injured. Sanzone escaped with a few scratches but was feeling badly over the loss of the eggs.

East Bloomfield, N. Y. - William Bouglass
was severely injured last Friday while loading hay at the barn of his son-in-law, Friend Parmele. A heavy gust of wind blew the doors together with great force, startling the team, which jumped, throwing Mr. Bouglass backward. He struck on his head and shoulders. Mr. Bouglass was immediately taken into the house of Mr. Parmele, when a physician was summoned. is injuries were pronounced severe.



Naples, N. Y. - During the heavy thunderstorm of Saturday afternoon, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Smith were struck by lightning. They live on the Irving Anable farm. The fluid entered the room in which they were in by the chimney and stovepipe. Both of Mr. Smith's legs below the knee were riddled, and one of Mrs. Smith's feet dreadfully mangled, quite disabling them. The house took fire and they barely escaped death, but by a great effort they extinguished the flames. The injuries are serious but they will probably recover.



On Wednesday, Mr and Mrs. Martin Combs, an aged couple living at Wilson's Corners nearly two miles south of Reed's Corners, came to the village to transact some business and to do a little trading. Starting for home in the afternoon at about 3 o'clock, they drove down Main street until they were in front of the residence of F. X. McNulty, where their horse became frightened by an electric street car, and suddenly shying to the side of the road, violently threw both occupants out of the buggy. Mr. Combs struck on his neck on a water pipe lying by the side of the road and was rendered unconscious. Mrs. Combs struck on her head on some gutter stones and the end of a water pipe and was quite badly cut on her face and the top of her head. The injured couple were carried into the house of Mr. Sutherland, and Dr. Beahan was summoned. It was fully a quarter of an hour before Mr. Combs regained consciousness. Mr. and Mrs. Combs are severely bruised, but no really serious results are anticipated. The horse was captured in front of the Lake Breeze house and was not injured.

Newton Harrington
of Shortsville, a former landlord of the Mansion House, met with a serious accident last Saturday evening. While driving a double team, one wheel of his vehicle ran off, throwing him from the carriage to the ground, and one of the horses fell upon him, pinning him to the ground.  Help was soon at hand and he was extricated from his painful and dangerous condition and taken home.  Drs. Pratt of Manchester were summoned and after a careful examination pronounced his injuries mostly internal.  No bones were broken and unless the injuries to his heart and lungs result in internal inflammation of the bruised membrane, his early recovery seems assured.

Last Friday morning, Carlton A. Davis met with an accident which nearly cost him his life. Davis, who is an experienced horse breaker and lives on upper Main street, was returning from the country with a load of baled straw. One of the horses which he was driving was a spirited young colt. When near Sackett's corner, about two miles from the village, on the North Bloomfield road, a board which he had used for a seat when the wagon was empty, worked around and struck the colt. The animal made a plunge, and before Davis could quiet it, the increased speed had shaken a bale of the straw from the wagon. It fell between the box and the horses and the young horse renewed its frantic leaps. Davis hung on bravely, but the bales of straw were not fastened and the whole load was soon tottering and swaying. The horses turned the corner and with increased speed, continued down the road. The driver's stout grasp upon the reins was gradually pulling forward the bale upon which he sat. When a few rods beyond the corner the crisis came. Davis and the bale plunged down behind the horses. Davis was kicked in the breast by the colt and his body then fell beneath the wheels. The forward and back wheels passed across his chest diagonally. The team sped on, but becoming caught in the harness, ran but a short way. Henry Day and his hired man on the Sackett farm had seen the accident and hastened to the assistance of the injured man, whom they carried into the house.

Dr. F. P. Warner was summoned and found the man seriously, and at first it was thought fatally, injured. The marks of the wheels could be seen upon the chest, and internal injuries were feared. The shoulder blade on one side was broken, and the pneumogastric nerve was paralyzed. The unfortunate man was otherwise bruised and cut. His breathing was labored and he had recovered only semi-consciousness by night. A series of sinking spells were followed by slight signs of improvement, but the patient is still very weak and gaining slowly.



Any person knowing the whereabouts of a lady who, in 1866, was Miss Lillie Everetta Akley, 9 years of age, and lived in this village with a Miss Hunter, would confer a great favor upon interested parties by informing the postmaster, Frank R. Beecher.

Friday, an Italian, Luizi Basile, employed on the waterworks construction, was in the trench near Chamberlain's farm when a 1500-pound water pipe rolled on him from the top of the bank. That he escaped with his life is a miracle. He was taken to an Italian abode on Ontario street, where it was found that one wrist was broken, and that the bones of one leg had been twisted and dislocated. Basile had been in this country but three days and was without money or friends. When the accident occurred several of the laborers who occupy a house in Ontario street took him in, have given him food and medicine, and are now circulating a subscription paper in the hope of procuring enough money to send him to the Rochester hospital, as his injuries will lay him aside for some time.

She was taken down Seymour street to the rear of the village building where Policeman Merry's revolver put an end to her sufferings. Only three days' ago Hughson was offered $100 for her.

was badly injured last Sunday morning by being hit by a fast-moving bicycle. Mr. Harris is a milkman, and at the time of the accident was delivering milk to Mrs. Chas. Schutt on Exchange street. Just as he stepped out of her doorway, James Coons, who is employed at Herendeen's, came past on a bicycle. He was going at a rapid rate as Harris stepped in front of him. Harris was knocked down and severely injured. The accident, of course, was unintentional on the part of Coons, but nevertheless more care should be observed in riding on the walks. It is probable that a complaint will be made against Coons for fast riding.

Efforts to dislodge the fragment were of no avail, and the old lady suffered terribly until Dr. Hallenbeck arrived. It was with difficulty that the physician removed the apple, and not until the unfortunate woman was nearly exhausted. Mrs. Sterling has been in a very weak condition since but is slowly improving.

Yesterday morning Joseph Daly fell from a tree in Atwater park, and now lies in a dangerous condition. A number of men were engaged in cutting down some horse chestnut trees in the park and Mr. Daly climbed the tree to fasten the rope with which to pull it over. He had fixed the rope and was coming down when a limb upon which he stepped broke and precipitated him to the ground, fifteen feet below. He was taken to his house in a semi-conscious condition and Dr. Hollenbeck called. He found the unfortunate man suffering from a broken breast bone and internal injuries, the extent of which cannot be learned at present.  He was under the physician's care all day yesterday. Owing to his age, which is 70 years, the question of his recovery is doubtful.

A Brutal Assault - William Williams Arrested on a Charge of Mayhem -
While walking on Exchange street last Wednesday evening at about 7:30, William Connell, a moulder employed at the stove works, was savagely assaulted by William Williams, also a moulder.  Williams bit Connell's nose in a frightful manner.  The assailant was arrested and arraigned before Chief Justice Smelzer who held him in $100 bail for examination, which was set down for Friday morning at 10 o'clock.

At 8:15 last night William Connell appeared before Chief Justice Smelzer and made a charge of mayhem against Williams.  A warrant was issued and placed in Officer Kenney's hands.  He found his prisoner at the corner of Lake and Exchange streets, and twenty minutes after the warrant was issued produced Williams before the Justice.  The prisoner plead not guilty to this second charge and asked for an examination.  Thereupon the Police Justice set the examination down for 10 A. M. on Monday next, and placed the bail at $300, which was furnished by Thomas Toole, father-in-law of the accused, and at 10 P. M. Williams was again at liberty.  The stove works, where both men were employed, upon learning of the affair we are informed, immediately ordered the discharge of Williams.  He will be arraigned on the first charge (assault in the third degree) at 10 A. M. this morning.

The Geneva readers of the Boston Herald of Tuesday were pleased to find in the report of a ball game, played in that city between the Bostons and the Cincinnatis, the following pleasant allusion to a well-known Genevan who wins laurels for himself and Geneva  wherever he plays. Frank Dwyer won new laurels for the elegant game he pitched in the morning. He had superb command, and at critical periods was to be wholly relied upon. Duffy did not get a hit off him in five times at bat and did not once succeed in batting the ball out of the diamond. But one hit was made off him the first four innings, and but one in the last three. He received some great support.

The rig struck Mr. Ryan, throwing him to the ground. The inconsiderate chap in the buggy drove on without waiting to see what damage he had done. Mr. Ryan was not seriously injured. He would like, however, to meet the driver of the rig some cool evening.

Between one and two o'clock yesterday afternoon there was a runaway on Exchange street that caused great commotion in the vicinity where it occurred. Lewis Pollay, whose home is near Trumansburg, was driving near the railroad crossing on Exchange street. Accompanying him were his wife and young child. A street car coming around the Lewis street curve at Exchange street scared the horse which bolted across the car track towards the T. Smith & Co.'s office. A sudden turn caused a wheel to collapse and the occupants were thrown to the pavement. Those who saw the accident thought at first that all three were killed, so violently did they appear to strike the roadbed. Such, however, was not the case. Mr. Pollay picked himself up uninjured and went to his wife's assistance. Beyond a few slight bruises she was also uninjured. The baby was crowing in the road and seemed to consider the whole affair a joke. It was unharmed. The horse ran on, and on the walk in from of Smith's the wagon collided with a pole. Here its demolition was completed. Joseph Barclay, an employe of T. Smith & Co., caught the horse in the lumber yard. So disgusted was Mr. Pollay with his experience that he sold horse, harness and wagon to a bystander at a ridiculously low figure. He went home on the train.



Canandaigua, N. Y. -
Another disgraceful row occurred in the neighborhood of the Central round house in the railroad switchyard here Sunday night, in which one man was badly stabbed, and as the police were conspicuous by their absence therefrom, little was known of it until an eye witness reported it yesterday. Timothy Cullinane is a young man, who is at liberty during good behavior. He was one of the two convicted of assault at the last court of sessions, the assault having been committed near the round house on Joseph Cooper, a railroad employe. Sunday evening the usual crowd were hanging about the round house when Cullinane's dog began to fight with another canine. The Cullinane animal was the under dog and the sneering remarks of one John Gavin, a railroader, displeased Cullinane, who promptly announced that he was a fighter if his cur wasn't. Gavin wasn't all all backward about expressing his doubts and words passed. Cullinane left, but soon returned and the quarrel was resumed. The two came to blows, and without warning, Cullinane produced a knife and slashed his opponent down the back of the head and neck, and across the body, apparently aiming for a vital spot. Gavin made a grab for the knife, but before he could get it away received a terrible cut on the hand, that severed the cords and tendons and may cripple him. He did not make a complaint so the would-be murderer was allowed his liberty. The easy-going members of the police force either fearing to arrest him or being too indolent to perform an act of public duty. Cullinane had a brother stabbed to death under similar circumstances several years ago. The district attorney has taken measures to secure Cullinane's incarceration, and he has been placed in custody.

A spirited young horse belonging to John Carney ran away this noon. He was tied on Castle street near Hunt's Market. Some passing school children scared him, and breaking from his fastening, he tore down Castle street to Elm; down Elm to Colt and from Colt into Genesee street where he was stopped near George A. Peal's house. On Castle street Mr. Carney's vehicle collided with a lumber wagon, and the former came out of the encounter a wreck. A baby carriage containing a little one in charge of a lady came near being run over on Castle street. Beyond the injury wrought to Mr. Carney's carriage, no damage was done.

Saturday Mrs. Clara Magary asked for a warrant for the arrest of Ambrose Hogan for assault. The Hogans own a house on Niagara street, half of which they rent to the Magarys. In the rear of this house there is a garden, and here is the seat of the trouble. Magary's garden and Hogan's garden are separated only by an imaginary line. Both parties claim that when the other is absent, this imaginary line broadens and expands. Friday night it was expanding from the Magary side when the Hogans came out. In attempting to get the imaginary line back into place, Mrs. Magary received a few bruises and her husband a black eye, which they claimed came from the Hogan side.

Wednesday afternoon a bad runaway occurred near Centerfield. Ira DeLong was driving with his sister, Mrs. Hall and child, when his horse took fright at a traction engine. The animal plunged to the side of the road, taking the vehicle with it. Mr. DeLong was thrown from the carriage, and the animal, without a driver, sped on with the frightened mother and two-year-old babe. One wheel had been bent in such a manner that it would not turn, and Mrs. Hall, with great presence of mind, bent over it and endeavored to place the babe on the ground as gently as possible. The child hung to the wheel and the mother, as a last effort, took the child again in her arms and jumped from the vehicle, which was switching and swaying behind the maddened animal. In striking Mrs. Hall received a sprained ankle, and both she and the child were covered with mud. DeLong suffered a concussion of the brain, and remained unconscious until Thursday morning. His condition has much improved.
