Miss Giaco Liddicott and Ernest
Foreman hail a most narrow and
thrilling escape from death at Beat
rice yesterday morning. While the
latter was driving Miss Liddicott to
her school in South Beatrice, tho
horse became frightened at a tiain
and as he was driven onto tho viaduct
over tho Burlington track near G. I
Marvin's place, shied to one side and
breaking tho railing, was precipitated
to tho bottom, a distance of thirtv
feet. The occupants of tho spring
wagon feli boneath the rig at the
bottom of the cut bnt managed to
effect their escape with scarcely
scratch. I he rear car ot tho passen
ger train, as it whizzed by, struck tho
horo. inflicting injuries which nec
essitated tho killing of tho animal
later in tho day. Tho damago to the
vehicle was also nearly complete.
Miss Liddicott pluckily continued her
way to school nnd although very nerv
ous, declined to quit the school.
