The gentleman, the supporter of royalty and sound constitutional princi ples, wore breeches?. Napo leon's army was the first that wore trowsers, and trowsers made progress in general adoption step by step with the march of the French army. People thought the mangier in which a great con quering nation clad its legs was the model. England stood out the longest against trowsers, but finally she yielded, and her army marched to Waterloo wearing the uni versal leg funnels. Our grandfathers generally fell in with the ways of the world, though Federalists here and there would not yield. We have trowsers in men's and youth's sizes ; they are light stripes and checks, (the trousers, not the men and youths); they are just the thing to go with a thin coat and vest, and if you put them all on at the same time are sure to go together. Step in and be trowsered before your size is taken by the other rel low.

A mere mention of the affair w as printed In the itn'l in if last evening, but the circumstances connected with the exse were not obtainable in time to give in that issue, A IU cum if reporter drove over to the "vap' dlstrut where he with diifculty obtained the full facts and the) are now given.

Tho most thrilling and exciting runaway which has occurred in this clt) for) ears took place last (Wednesday) evening be tween 7 and 8 o'clock on Main street The excitement produced was simpl) unparal leled. The spectacle of a maddened horse clattering along at the fearful speed that terror Inspires and swinging and careening behind him a buggy containing two help less little children, was a picture which in spired a feeling of horror In hundreds of breasts. Fortunately, the runaway was without serious results, but a terrible dis- xster wxs undoubtedly prevented by the courage and quickness of one man. l)r. G. I). Brinkman, a well known phy sician, living at li west Main street, left his buggy near the alley between Mechanic and Plum streets, and went luto the resi deiue of a Mr. Wright to attend to the latter's wife, who Is ill. Dr. Brlnkman's two little children, Georgie and Cora, aged Sand-6 respeotiv ely. were in the buegy at the tune and xs the horse is a little unsafe. Dr. Brinkman asked Mr. Wright to stand at the horse's head w hile the ph) sician w ent inside, which 31 r. Y right promised to do. But becoming interested In the attractive tittle children, he left the horse's head and walked around to the side of the buggy to talk to them. At this moment two young men ilrove up behind the buggy, and as their horo reached the gutter it stumbled and partially fell, making a loud, clattering noise. This frightened Dr. Brinkman s animal and before Mr. Wright could pre vent he was dashing east on Main street at the speed of a rocket The territied little children commenced screaming wildly, and the sight caused many a cheek to blanche, Man) attempts w ere made to stop the animal, but they were all ineffectual. At Market street Mr. Frank Mills, of Ban croft's hat store, attempted to seize the hciry" b) the bit, but missed his hold and was struck ami knocked down. He re ceived a bad I) bruised head and had to go home. Ex-chier Walker had his hand ter ribly hurt at the same place. Half way up the square two or three iKilicemen ruined out aud held their canes for the horse to admire, but did no good. Jim Cavanaugh welted the frightened animal over the nos trils with an umbrella, but never "fazed" it At this moment Pat Bryce, ot Bren ner's livery stable, leaped into tho street running obliquely in the same general di rection as the horse. He threw himself upon the frightened animal and succeeded Iu bringing it to a stop In front ot Casper's drugstore. The brave act was applauded b) the rowd. Mr. John Sherry was al most Instrumental in stopping the horse and a dozen others grabbed it when all danger was ov er. Then two policemen came up, calnil) dug their wa) through the crowd and drove off in state. Br) cehad bis foot badly crushed by the horse and goes lame today. Dr. Brinkman Ls treating him ver) handsomely. A SPRINCFIELDER HONORED. I. r lfrUoiiald Nominated for Lieutenant Governor by the I'nlun Labor Party Ills Career. I. F.
