Another narrow escape from death or serious injury took place last night when Mrs. Quartis Parmele was the victim of a runaway upon Sixth street. Fortunately the lady escaped without serious injury although she suffered greatly from shock and was painfully cut and bruised about the face. Mr. and Mrs. Parmele had been out riding in their single horse rig, the horse being the bay usually driven by them, and they were driving down Vine street when they approached the auto mobile of Chas. C. Parmele standing between the residences of F. G. Fricke and A. E. Gass. Earlier during the day they they had passed this machine, which is a large touring car with carriage top, and the horse had man ifested no fright at it, and only a few minutes before they had passed a motor cycle under motion without alarming the animal, so they had no thought of the animal taking alarm this time. They came up in the rear of the machine which was standing still and making no noise, and when almost even with it the horse stopped. Mr. Parmele fearing the animal was about to bolt, stepped from the buggy, handing the reins to his wife, intending to go up to the horses head and lead him up to the machine. He had reach ed the head of the horse and was ex tending his arm to grasp the bit when the animal made a sudden leap, turning almost at right angle, and dashed across the street over the walk and through the vacant lots just east of the res idence at the corner of Sixth and Vine street. The suddenness of the jump prevented Mrs. Parmele from obtain ing the mastery of the animal and it Nehawka (From the Resrister.)

Taylor and family. dashed around the residence entering Sixth street just north of the o!d Neville block. When the rig struck the curbing on Sixth street the shock threw Mrs. Parmele out, she striking the pavement on her face and side re ceiving severe bruises and two deep cuts on the face. One cut was on the right side of the face just above the eye while the other was accross the chin. They required several stitches to close. It was at an hour when the streets were crowded with people and almost before Mrs. Parmele had struck the pavement there were a number of peoDle on hand to assist her, Mr. Par mele reaching her side within a moment after the accident had happened. She was perfectly conscious but was picked up and carried to the office of Dr. Liv ingston where the necessary medical attention was given her. After it was discovered that her injuries were not dangerous she was removed to her home and shortly became easier, the shock having worn off. The horse after throwing Mrs. Par mele continued down Sixth street to Main where it collied with a single rig driven by Augus Rakow, tearing it up considerable and giving Rakow a bad scare. Mr, Parmele's buggy was also badly demoralized, being practically torn to pieces. The noise of the col lision caused an immense crowd of people to flock to the scene and many alarming rumors were current as to who was hurt. The out-come of the accident was most fortunate as it was one of the kind in which death frequent ly occurs.
