before Mr. llooth could regain control of
his team no was thrown violently over
the dashboard and hurled with "rcat mo

side of thehlL'hwav. Mr. Booth's body
was wranneu comnictciy arounii tno
pole several feet from the ground. A
short distance further Dr. Kellogg was
thrown out. Tho horses then became
loosened from tho carriage, running some
distance, wnen iney were caugiit, navinc

number of persons soon eanio to tho
si-one. and obtaiulnir a straw-bed and nil
lows, placed tho sullerer in a wagon and
nrocewled to Cos Cob. Physicians were
sent for, and when the people arrived at
Mr. Booth's residence, chloroform nnd
ether were administered, and an examin
ation of the body revealed that tho left
arm was broken in two places, about two
inches nnart. near the elbow. It was found
nlso that the fourth rib was fractured, and
that the front portion of tho body was
badly bruised. In a short time Mr. llooth
becamo conscious, and when Joseph
llooth. his brother, who had been tele
graphed for, arrived In tho evening, he
was smoking his fuvorito pine, though

sccmea llttlo concerned at his own con
dltlon, nnd said that all he had thought
of was Ills wife and child. Sirs llooth
bore up for n brie! tltno against the shod
which licr nervous system had rccclvi1
from the news of the accident, but afur
the excitement was over she gave way,
and during the night fainted rejieatcdly.
By order of tho physician no one was al
lowed to see him except tho nurse and
Mr. I). W. Wnlkcr, an old friend of Mr.
Uooth. A short conversation took place
between them, and Mr. Booth said he
was thankful that his injuries were no
worse, and hoped soon to be about. Said
Miss Edw hi llooth," l'apa Is very glad
that It was not his sword arm that was
broken, and It's very lucky too. If It had
been the right arm, perhaps he could
never have appeared on the stage again."
Yesterday ilr. llooth was suffering from
fainting Ills, and was in the hands ofhis
nhvaic an. Know nrr Mr. liootll s won
derful constitution and unusual recuper
ative power, and having lcarncu tnc na
ture of his Injuries, Mr. Walker was con
fident that his health would be entirely
restored In a month. The
nhvslclans are also of the opinion that
Mr. llooth will beiiulckly restored should

very notleeablc. They Hocked to the
house In large numbers, and seemed much
rejoiced at the assurance of Mr. Booth's
recovery, lu conversation with diirer
enl people at those places It was learned
that he is very much beloved by every
one there. Tlicy all know him. many of
them personally. Cedar Cliff, Mr.
Booth's slimmer villa, Is a pretty cottage
built upon an eminence not a hun.lred
yards from Cos Cob station, on the Xcw
York and Xew Haven railroad, overlook
ing tho Cos Cob river and Long Island
sound. The house was built by Mr.
Charles M. Barras. the playwright, and
the author of the '-Black Crook,"
who was rtiH over and killed
near his home by jumping from
a train while it was in motion. The
place was atterward purchased by Mr.
Booth, who has since occupied it during
the summer season. The house Is a pret
ty cottage, and the ground? arc tastefully
laid out in lawn and blooming borders,
and a great number of Tigorous cedars
along the slope of the hill leading down
to the water-side serve to set a picture
whoe eastern limit is the distant Long
Island shore. At the foot of the slope
