A remarkable accident, in
which Mrs.. G. A. Waggoner of
this city participated, occurred at
Scio last week. With Mrs. Lura
Irvine, her sister and a third lady,
Mrs. W(aggoner.was passing along
the street in a buggy, when a
heavy team of runaway horses
with wagon attached struck them.
The runaways came from one side,
and one horse passed in front of
their horse, and the other between
the horse and buggy. The pole
of the wagon passed between the
ladies and the back of their buggy
seat. The buggy was crushed in
an unrecognizable mass, with the
ladies in the debris, '. and the en
tangled horses tramping over them.
Some idea of the character of the
accident is gained by the fact that
and unloading, malrme' Sao tne cost the buffe-v- m its everv Dart was so
hi transporting the boat from
. A j
Corval li s .to Yaq uina . It was done
for a much smaller fee by team as
far as Elk City, from where Prof.
Pernot will navigate his vessel to
any part of the Bay to suit his
fancy. On her trial trip on the
Willamette the boat developed a
speed of 10 miles an hour, and
performed very satisfactorily.
Prof. Pernot left yesterday by
train to meet at Elk City, Scott
King who will reach Elk City to
night with the boat. '
badly, smashed that, it cannot be
repaired, and is a total loss. An
other remarkable feature, is that
with the exception of bruises, both
Mrs. Waggoner and ner sister es
caped unhurt. Mrs. Ifoung, ; who
is a sister-in-law of Mrs. A. J
Jonnson ot tms city, and a cousin
of Mrs. Waggoner a finger
broken, and two painful scalp
wounds. .' .
The thing couldn't happen
again in a thousand years, and
not be a tragedy. -
One Benton county teacher
has written Superintendent -Denman
that a wagon load of exhibits
will be brought in from her dis
trict for the , AU-Benton-School--Fair."
With such exhibits from a
remote county, an idea . is to be
gained of the display that will be
on exhibition during the three days
