West Seventh street was a race
course for frightened horses last Sat
urday, and as a result several vehi
cles were reduced to splinters and a
number of persons injured.
The first runaway occurred during
the morning. W bile Messrs. Clyde
Latta and John and Fugeno Loch
ridge were driving along West
Seventh street near ti e Episcopal
church, a front wheel come oil their
buggy, and their horse becoming
frightened, ran away at break neck
speed. Eugene Lochridge jumped
from the veiiicle and escaped un
hurt, but the other gentlemen kept
their seats until the buggy struck a
tree In front of R. P. Dod'sun's resi
dence, when they were thrown to
the ground, and their buggy con
verted into kindling wood. Mr. Lat
ta was unhurt, but Mr. Lochridge
was (piite badly bruised up and had
to be carried to Dr. Wilkes' office
across the street.
As ill-luck would have it, the
buggy occupied by Jim Maddox, col
ored, and his wife, happened to be
in the way of the runaway horse,
and it was struck and overturned
and the occupants thrown out but,
fortunately, yvere not hurt. Had
dox's horse then started to running,
and, before he stopped, treated his
master's vehicle in tlie same man
ner that horse No. 1 had treated his.
But all this was only Act I of the
drama; Act II was presented during
the afternoon. A blind, yellow
horse belonging to J. H. Kelly,
Principal of tlie Colored Public
School, got scared at something out
near Little Bigby Creek, on the
Hampshire pike, and started on a
John Gilpin run towards town. In
his blindness mik! fright he claim
ed the whole pike and respected no
one. The first obstacle he met was
a cart occupied by Hugh Collier
and another gentleman, near the
Arsenal. The occupants were thrown
out and slightly bruised up, and the
cart badly damaged. The next ob
struction he met was a horse near
the Athenaeum. Tlie lider, Edward
Andrews, was thrown to tlie ground.
but fortunately was not hurt, then
horse No. two joined in the race and
helped make things more lively. A
surrey occupied by Mrs. hem Banks
and daughter .Miss tannie. ot
Thompson's Station, was the next
impediment to the mad career of tlie
blind racer. The surrey was stand
ing iu front of the Trade Palace,
and was completely overturned
when the horse struck it. Mrs.
Banks escaped unhurt, but Miss
Banks was badly cut about the face.
The vehicle was not damaged. A
telegraph pole at the Plnenix Bank
corner brought the poor scared blind
brute to a halt. He struck the pole
squarely with his face, and for
