So many things happened last Thurs
day. Among the lia,peniiig is an ac
count of Mrs. Garton and little girt und
Elsie Merriain, friends of long standing
having a fulling out. It seems these
ieople started out from home, drividg a
sfian of ponies that liked to travel up
hill or down just as fast or slow as they
pleased. They were going to Knd I fie
day with Mrs. Priddy. They had jlist
passed the place where Mr. Keel was tak
ing the wire down, and were driving
down into the gulch. Tlie road is wide
enough, but none too wide. Mrs. Gar
ton was iry.rg to hold the ponies back
from going at a break neck s)eed, when
the horse on tlie right side crowded over
to tbe left. This caused tlie two wheels
on tlie left side of the buggy, to rim up
on a bank. Mrs. Oortan was on tbe down
hill side, and before any of them had
time to get scared or to think of dauber,
over went tlie boggy snap went the reach
und they were all on the ground, and
away went the horses on a dead run with
a piece of the reach and tlut two (root
w bee Is spinning along after them at a
one forty rale. They picked tliemselves
up just as the horses disappeared over
the hill an the opposite sida of tlie gulch.
They were so glad to find themselves
alive and unhurt they just looked from
tlte flying horses to tlie broken buggy
and then at one anothar nnd grinned. - A
minnit or two later Mr. Keel came down
the hill, after them, leading his horse,
and inquired if any one was hurt. No
they said but the buggy was brole and
the horses gone. "Oh (logon tliebuigy
oou saiu, -ii no one is nun, i n try ana
get tlie horses back for you." . So onto
his horse and away he went. Tlie po
nies had got quite a start, but Mr. Keel
cut across Mr. Biehle's pasture and al
most sucdeeded in catching litem but
missed tliem. But one of the Zerbst ami
one ofjthe Wills boys were over that way
and saw the horses running and caught
litem. They Itad ran about a mile aod a
half at full ed, and Mr. Keel brought
them back on double quick time and they
did not seem to want to run any mora.
They had lost a part of tits portion of tits
buffgy they started out with, so ttw bug
gy could not be fixed; Mrs. Garton and
Miss Marrktfii war determined not to
miss their visit nsvsrUialesa. Ho they Isft

around and fastened securely topetlter
