John Haas and John Martin of this City had a very had runaway on Railroad Street saturday afternoon. With a single horse attached to a buggy they had just driven in from the country. Ill front of Reese Evans one of the front spindles broke which caused the wheel to come off. One end of the front Axle dropped to the ground which threw the top of tin Hugev Forward. The horse took fright Aud began to run. Haas held of to the lines but was unable to control the frightened animal which plunged ahead at a fearful rate. Opposite the Brick office of the Bessemer blast Furnace the Axle dragging struck an obstruction. As a result of the sudden Stop two things occurred at the same moment. The horse was thrown Over into the Gutter while the buggy turned Over Forward up Side Olowu with the two men imprison Neil underneath. It was a thrilling spectacle. Had the horse which was thrown upon his Side been Able to regain his feet immediately then would have been Little Hope for Haas and Martin. Several persons ran to the Rescue seizing the horse Aud holding him Down while tin two men crawled out of the mix up. Both Haas and Martin escaped serious injury. The former who resides on Mowery Street this City probably fared the worst sustaining rather painful bruises upon his face Aud of out foot. The horse also escaped with a few scratch is. The buggy was a total wreck. Turn on the water. The question is asked by a Good Many people Why the water is not turned of at the Public Fountain Mill and Bloom streets so As to enable the Noble gift of the w. G. T. U., which was brought into existence at the expense of so much hard work Aud Devotion to fulfil its Mission in minist a ring to humanity. Nearly a month has elapsed since there was any danger of freezing and yet the Only sign of water about the Fountain at present is what has been deposited in the two basins by the april showers. A the present is a season when the water is quite palatable without ice Aud the Fountain if put to use would be enjoyed to the fullest. A Little later the water will be too warm for drinking although the four Tail will fulfil its Mission by Aff ording a place for dumb animals to drink. It is quite a reflection that no one connected with Public affairs takes enough Pride in the town to see to it that the Fountain is turned of. Upon whom does the duty devolve a William f. Keim Anil miss Nell Knew Bier become Man and wife. A Home wedding to which a Good Deal of interest attaches took place last evening at the residence of Henry Kneibler 101 Vine Street.

As stenographer she was with Bailey amp trus Cott of Philadelphia for some time she was also stenographer at the hos-1 Pital for the insane and later with i the Danville Bessemer company. The Groom is draughtsman in the employ of architect j. H. Brugler this City. He is a Young Man of studious and illustrious habits Aud highly esteemed in the comm Uitz. Cruelty to animals. An agent of the society for the prevention of cruelty to animals would evidently fulfil a pretty important Mission in Danville. A couple of Drivers engaged in heavy hauling Between South Danville and this City Are making themselves notorious by the cruel treatment they inflict upon their horses in us attempt to make them pull the overloaded wagons up the Steep approach to the River Bridge at the South Danville end. The poor dumb brutes while doing their Best Are unmercifully beaten Aud abused. The Spe Taele has become a painful one to witness and the residents have resolved that tin thing Lias got to Stop. If the offending Drivers Are Wise they will take the a tip a otherwise one of these Days they May find themselves under arrest for cruelty to animals. Remodelling their store. John Jacobs sons confectioners have begun improvements in their store. Mill Street which will result in giving them considerable More floor space. The Long hallway running along the entire length of the store on the South Side is being removed. To provide a Side Entrance a new door at the rear of the store room will be broken into the Side of the building from the Alley open aug into a Hall enclosing a flight of Steps leading to the second Story. The space occupied by the new Entrance is More than compensated for by the room gained by the removal of the original Hall. The store is now several feet wider than before. Two counters will he installed while the space formerly occupied by the Hall door will be thrown into the front window adjoining which hereafter will i a feature of the store. At the gymnasium. The y. G. A. Gymnasium glasses seem to be pretty Well attended considering that the season is nearly Over and outside sports Are beginning to occupy the attention of the younger element. At any time during class hours however quite a number of the enthusiasts and those who Are anxious to Hui cd up their bodies May be seen in the a a gym hard at work on the Mats horizontal bar vaulting pole parallel bars horse and Buck. It is quite noticeable among some of the regulars what a surprising amount of Good elastic muscle May be put on by a Mouth or two of persistent everyday exercise of the proper kind which with a frequent run a Good hath and a Rubi Lown makes some very Good specimens of physical manhood. The Hoys have a variety of new exercises combined with an occasional strength pull that nukes the work very pleasurable and much sought after bitten by a Savage dog. Catherine the 13-year-old daughter of Louis Seitz Railroad Street was shockingly bitten by a Savage dog last evening. She had just left her fathers House to visit her sister mrs. Anna Mccloskey. Who lives a Short distance further up the Street. She was passing the residence of Patrick Burk when the a log flew out Aud attacked her. The girl screamed and ran but the dog. Which had seized her about the hips held on tenaciously sinking his Teeth deep into her flesh. The dog was finally beaten off and miss Seitz nearly overcome with fright Aud terror was taken into the House. Or. Paules was called. He found the girl in a very had Way. She was bitten three times two of the gashes inflicted being Over an Inch in length. The doctor lost no time in cauterizing the wounds and applying an Antiseptic. There is no fear at present of hydrophobia. The brute which is of the Bull dog Breed As revealed by his caper last night is simply not to be trusted. Care should be taken that he does not get an Opportunity to repeat the attack. Getting ready for Trout season. The Trout season in Pennsylvania opens on tuesday. April 15th.
