ing him instantly, it paralyzed John
son and rolled him off the seat. As
Dan went over he threw up his hands,
and flung the reins out on the
prairie. A boy in the hind end of the
wagon tried to get them, but being
unable, jumped out. The horses,
thoroughly frightened, were running
at full speed. When Johnson came to
he saw the horses were making for a
deep slough full of water, and fear
ing he would be drowned rolled out
of the wagon, and lay insensible for
some time in the road. Reviving a

nearest house, where he fainted

aroused other neighbors, who came
on horseback, and rescuing the other
horse, finally got Johnson, and with
the body of Instine, proceeded to
Weeping Water. Mr. Johnson is
seriously injured, and his recovery
was for a long while doubtful.

the result of indcgistible food, poor
mastication, alcoholic excesses, infec
