Escaped Death on Lonely Road.
Salem, Or. Nov. 17.— Prof. J. H.
Ackerman had a narrow escape
from serious injury on Saturday
night while on his way from Dallas
to Salem. The road a portion of
the way is narrow and winds
through and around the kills be
tween Eola and Salem. It has re
cently been graveled and improv
ed, but is barley wide enough for a
team to travel on it. When Mr.
Ackerman reached this portion of
the road darkness had fallen. The
team overtook another rig and at
tempted to pass, when the buggy
capsized, throwing the driver down
the embankment, while Mr. Acker
man was caught in the top of the
buggy. Fortunately the driver re.
tained the lines, and though drag
ged a short distant was able to stop
the team. The only damage done
was a severe bruising on the bodies
of both Mr. Ackerman and the driv
er and the thorough covering of
their clothing with mud. Mr. Ack
erman was able to come to this city,
and after a couple of days’ confine
