Mr. M. V. Owen Thrown Out
of Buggy, Injury Slight.
What came near being a serious
accident occurred in front of the
Opera House yesterday morning.
Van Dulln, Jr., collector for th&
Forbes Mfg. Co., wa3 going up Main
street, which had just been sprink
ied, when the front wheels of the
auto struck the buggy of Mr. M. V,
Owen, knocking the horse down, and
throwing Mr. Owen out on to the
street. Mr. Owen fortunately sus
tained no serious injury. Though
his head hit the street, the fall did
not break the skin. The buggy was
not injured excepting the breaking
of a shaft. The damage to the car
is considerable, both front wheels
being twisted, one mud shield dam
aged and one of the lamps broken.
Mr. Dulin says that in trying tc
avoid striking a buggy coming down
the incline, the street being so slick
from sprinkling, his machine skidded
into Mr. Owen's buggy, which he
was powerless to prevent.
