Mr. Thos. E. Epting Run Over b.
Runaway Hack Horse in Co
Mr. Thomas E. Epting, of Newber
ry, had been on a visit to his home for
several days during the past week.
He left Sunday afternoon on the C.,
N. and L. railroad for Richmond to
,resume his work with the Southern
Bell Telephone company. Just after
reaching Columbia he was walking
up Gervais street on his way to the
Seaboard depot. A hack horse, that
was hitched near the railroad with a
weight as a hitching post, became
frightened and ran up on the side
walk. Mr. Epting not seeing the
horse, was run over and knoeked
down on his face.
Mr. Jas. Goggans, who had gone to
Columbia on the same train with Mr.
Epting, saw him when he was knock
ed down and went immediately to his
assistance and had him carried to the
city hospital. It was found that his
face was terribly mangled and for a
while he was unconscious.
The injuries seem to be confined to!
his face and head and it is not known
whether he will lose the sight of one
of his eyes or not.
A telephone message from Colum
bia yesterday stated that Mr. Epting1
was much better and his mind was
entirely clear, and while his condi
tion' is serious it is thought that he
will recover. It could not be told

jured or not.
