this way : A son of Pat Fitz

ponies, and when, a short distance
above tho levee 011 the Mound
city road ho came up with the buggy In
which Mrs. Yocum and her daughters
were riding. The boy passed them, and
la passing the buggy uU pony went at a
lively gait. The horse attached to thn
buggy, though usually quiet and eally
managed, does not like to be passed on
the road, and as tlie boy came up with
blm he started at a rupld pace. Mrs.
Brodcrlck was driving, and though she
tried her best she could not check him,
and after going some dWtnucg tho wheels
ot the buggy struck a stump,
which turned the tugxy ovt,
throwing Mrs. Yocum, her daughters
and the children out. When the buggy
struck the stump the top mid bed be

buggy were more or lens hurt, though.
