Horrible Accident
Clarence Cowden, the six-year-old son of constable A. A. Cowden was dangerously hurt Tuesday morning by a runaway horse in the street near his home. A lady was driving the horse and had stopped to hitch it to a post, when the dog, belonging to the rig, jumped into the buggy upsetting a tin bucket, frightening the horse, knocking the lady down and running away. The little fellow did his best to get out of the way but the horse followed in his steps overtaking him and knocking him down, the shaft striking just below the left eye and the buggy passing over his head. Mr. Cowden reports that the little fellow is doing reasonably well considering his numerous bruises which may at any time prove fatal.

The lad is just six years old today.
