bad mounted a Texai pony, the property ot
Mr. Gonun, hotel proprietor, and had gone
but a short distance when one of the saddle
girths slipped to tho pony's flank. The
animal began to kick, and Mrs. Braisted

A Horrible Death.
Mount Yekxon, O., August 15. John
Jenkins, a weulthy farmer residing a few
miles west ot here, met with a horrible
death this morning. He had started to
lead a 4-year-old bull to water when the
animal became fractious and uncontrolla
ble. Goaded to fury by his. attempts to
subdue it tbe beast charged upon and toss
ed the unfortunate and helpless man into
the air, and as he struck the csrth it placed
its hoofs on bis chest and gored him about
the head and shoulders in tho most shock
ing manner. His cries for help brought his
housekeeper to tho scene, who, with assis
tance of a dog, succee led in driving tho in
furiated bull away. The woman raised
Mr. Jenkins iu her arms, when fio com

aid upon the ground agaiu, and in a tew
moments thereafter expired. He was about

THE WOUNDED EXECUTIVE.
Since yesterday morning there was no
change for the better in the case of tbs
president. The excitement, in Washington
was intonsc all day yesterday, but it is due
more to the wild rumors that were i nut
afloat, than to anything that the attending
physicians said. In fact .; their
silence aud eaccrness . to avoid
all questions concerning the condition
of their patient was takon as proof of tho
dangerous character of his condition, snd
served as a basis for sensational rumors. An
attempt to interview Dr. Agnew was met
with, "I cannot say anything to you, sir,
about the case; and Dr. Reyburn boing
asked, it tho President would die during
Monday nignt, replied tartly, "I cannot
answer that, I cannot answer that," and
hastily disappeared in the sick chamber,
These actions of the physicians, together
with what can be gleaned from tho official
dispatches received here within the hist two
days, give ground to the belief that yester
day and tho day before, for the first timo
since the President's i elapse of two weeks
ago, bis condition was such as to warrant
some alarm among the people.
1 Yesterday's dispatches were as follows: '
,'WAsnisaTON, 10, 1.15 p. m. President

An 'eccentric Philadelphia, fearful,
that his special undertaker mu-ut uot
serve hira, had long before his death
ordered his coflln. Boing a very big

into it and stood np In it. It was a
frame to a picture. "It is long enough,"

wide enough" he folded his arms
"and mighty comfortable, I atiure
bim,,' he concluded with a sigh of in
effable satisfaction. JY. F,; Swl '
