Venable
Carpenter a farmer
near Laytonsville had a
narrow escapefrom death yesterday
morning While unloading some
tobacco near the L XN depot
standing in a wagon his mules
were frightened by an approaching
train and gave a sudden jump
Mr Carpenter was thrown vio
lently backward out of the wagon
He fell on his head and shoulders
in a mudhole This fact probably
saved him As it was he was very
badly hurt and had to be picked up
and given attention No bones
were broken and in an hour or two
he was able to walk
Mr Carpenter is about 40 years
old and a very heavy man weigh
ing 250 pounds The wonder is
that he escaped as well as he did
The mules did not run They
stopped after a jump or two

SOME OF DEWEYS MEN BACK
They Set Up a Great Cheer In New
York Harbor
New York May 7 The United
States cruiser Buffalo once the
Nictheroy arrived here from Ma
nila to day bringing nearly 600 of
Admiral Deweys officers and men
whose time hab expired The Buf
falo established a new record from
both Manila and Singapore which
will not be beaten for many years
if ever It took the Buffalo just
forty four and one half days to
come from Manila to New York
and Capt Hemphill declares that
he could have made the trip in thirty-seven
days but for the foul con
dition of the Buffalos bottom
The Buffalo brings back as hap
py a lot of American seamen as
ever trod the decks of a man-of-war
Most of them have been in tropical
waters with Admiral Dewey since
the latter went on the China station
and with few exceptions all fought
in the famous battle in Manila Bay
on May 1 one year ago They are
mighty glad to get home and showed
their pleasure at being in an Amer
ican harbor once more by lusty vo
cal exercises and violent dances all
over the lower decks of the cruiser
