Wiser, while ascending Lookout
Mountain by the pike, lost a valua
ble horse, but by almost a miracle
had a 9-year-old boy spared from a
most dreadful death. The lad, who
was sick, was lying asleep on a pil
low in the back seat of a one-horse
wagon, when the horse, at a curve in
the narrow road, became frightened
and leaped of the edge of the precipi
tous descent. He fell almost 100 feet
and was injured so badly that he had
to be killed. The wagon was
smashed into kindling wood. The
boy, strange to say, was unhurt,
save a tew slight scratches, and is in
better health than for some time past.
