Luck was with Alfred R., the 18-
vear-old son of Mr. and Mrs. A. II.
Pollard, 722 Eighteenth street, when
his bicycle collided with a frightened
horse on Seventh avenue near Forty,
second street last evening. A frac
tured rib and internal bruises tho
seriousness of which it is yet diffi
cult to determine are the extent of
his injuries. The accident occurred
in full view of the Forum, trolley
party, and it was a frightful one. no
one " expectinjr to see the lad arise
alive. Alfred was riling alongside
the illuminated cars on his bicycle.
Seventh avenue at this point is very
irregular, and going at a speedy gait
the bov was holding his head down

thoroughfare there is a gully and the
driveway is hardly wide enough to
permit tho passage of two vehicles.
A horse attached to a buggy, oc
cupied by George Seager, of
925 Eleventh street, was com
ing iu the opposite direction.
The anunal took fright at the dec

Dazed by the light the driver could
hardly see the approaching bicycle.
Came Together With a Craoh.
The horse and bicycle came to
gether with a loud crash. How the
boy escaped a fatality is a miracle.
Th'e horse striking the fore-wheel of
the bike considerably stilled the
force cf the collision. Alfred some
how threw up his hands and caught
hold of one of the shafts, which
threw him to one 6ide. Tbis pres
ence of mind probably saved his life.
When the commotion had subsided
the boy was picked up by Dr. E. M.
Sala, among the trolley party. The
bicycle was demolished and a shaft
on the buggy was broken. Alfred
was taken to the home of his aunt,
Mrs. II. E. Johnson, on Fourth
avenue, where he is stay ins while
his parents are in Boston, and his
injuries examined and administered
for by Dr. Sala, who is yet undecided
as to how seriously the boy is hurt

coaches. It was originally in
tended that they should' come into

train was brought in over tho Fitch-
burg tracks. Everyone was enthu
siastic, and bad only words of praise
for what they had seen at the hub.
The total number of Sir Knights in
the party was 50, and one of the most
ordinary features of the whole con
clave is that the total number of la
dies exceeded that of Sir Knights by
10. the number of the latter reaching
60. On arriving at union station
