mount his seat, when tho horses becamo
frightened, and dashed forward at n furi
ous pace, f meen or twenty children
of tho Catholic school wero playing in tho
street opposito tho Stnytbo resldonce, and
the horses dashed among theso. A littlo
sou of Albert Susanku, sgod about six
years, was tho only one injured. Ho ran
toward the Smythecornor of Washington
avonuo and Ninth street, but was over
taken by tho toam when about ten foet
from tho corner of tho sidewalk. The
foot of the off hor.o struck and knocked
him down. Tho force of tho blow pushod
him forward about eight feet, dashing his
head against the edgo of the sidewalk In
such a manner as to lacerate his ear and
tear it nearly off. When wo saw tho littlo
sutlorer ho was under tho influence or
chloroform, and it had not boon ascer
tained whother ho had received any dan
gerous wounds. Drs. Evans and "Wadg
