bills against district ISO. 9.

While driving a team across.

serious runaway. As he was
leaving the south end of the
bridge, a lady bicyclist passed

and with one lunge broke loose
from the wagon, and ran to the
corner of Cemetery street, where,
instead of keeping the road, they
plunged into the yard of Mr. F.
P. Morgan-, breaking down the
fence in two places. After fall

time, they dashed oa down the
main road, but coming to the
Mill race bridge one ot them
fell in the ditch, where they
