Mr. Killian, who had ueeoii panied
his wife to Jackson, where she was
met by a sister who drove Mrs.
Killian to her home on a farm west of
Jackson, left the county seat shortly
after midnight Friday.
The horse, which seemed to be in
splendid health, showed no signs of
fatigue. The trip to Jackson from
the Cape, which was begun about
eight o'clock Thursday evening, re
quired more than a hour.
When they reached that city, Mr.
anil Mrs. Killian visited friends. .
It was sometime after mid
night when Killian hitched up and
started for the t aie. The horse,
which was a good traveler, showed no
signs of being ill, but on the contrary
left Jackson at a steady gait.
The return journey wus made
in nothing more man average im.e,
and just as the horse rounded the
curve in front of the county farm, the
horse came to a sudden stop, moaned
and dropped to its knees.
Mr. Killian jumped out of the
buggy to investigate the trouble
and was astonished to find the animal
had died almost instantly. Heath

plete the journey on foot. He ar
rived in the Cape about 2:30 yes
terday morning. He said it was the
first tin.e in his career that he knew
of a horse dying of heart failure.

A runaway horse belonging to the
F. F. Braun Pros. Grocery Company
of Haarig Thursday night gave the
residents of the southern part of
the city an unusual thrill.
The horse, which was driven by
Otto Ovcrhcc, of 120 South Freder

minutes, and finally uncovered itself,
but Mot before so the wagon was

The runaway horse, in the mean-,
time continued its mad dash to
