N. II. Isbell, rural carrier on
Route No. 1 out of IMaltsmoulh,
met with an accident Tuesday
while making his rounds which
he will not want repeated, as he
had a very close call for his life
and narrowly escaped being cre
mated alive in his mail wagon.
Mr. Isbell had reached about the
half-way place of his circuit, near
which he feeds his team at noon,
when his team shied, throwing
one side of his wagon unon a
bank, overturning it, and the'
horses ran, dragging the wagon
on its side, in which was Mr.
Isabell, a hot stove with lire in it,
and the mail in the pigeon holes.
Be could do nothing to stop the
team, nor could he get himself in
position to open the side door
above him.
Mr. Isbell realized his grave
peril, and knowing the road
thoroughly, anticipated that he
would be inslanllv killed when a
certain stump in the road about a
quarter of a mile ahead, was
reached. When the wagon struck
this obstruction it tore the top
away, spilling Mr. Isbell, mail ami
stove out and scattering them
along the route for some distance.
On gathering up the remains of

papers were found to he charred

did and knocked the cover oIT the
wagon, Haines would have re
sulted from the charred paper and
Mr. Isbell would have been burn
ed to death. As it was, ho
escaped with numerous bruises,
but no serious ones. His team
was captured some distance away
from the place where Mr. Isbell
and the stove were thrown out.
The wagon was so badly wreck
ed that he cannot use it without
considerable repair. Today he
secured the wagon of one of the
other carriers to make his rounds
and will use this until his own
wairon is put in shape. Mr. Isbell
feels that, his escape was a very
narrow one, and his position in
the wacon with the stove and in
flamnble material was a most
perilous one.
