Dick Hanlein was out riding with Misses
Edith Knittle and Barbara Schottler ;
and , as he passed the Sixth avenue
corner of Commercial street , their horse
became frightened and plunged down
the street at a furious rate. When just
in front of Newman & Co.'s store , the
horse jumped up into buggy belonging
to a farmer named Spencer and smashed
it to pieces. Hanlein and the two girls
were thrown out of their buggy on to the
sidewalk. Hanlein was stunned and the
girls were both badly injured. Miss
Knittle , in particular , sustained very se
vere injuries about her hips and shoul
ders. The young ladies were carried to
the Mit-Way and medical aid was im
mediately summoned. They were later
removed to their homes and are now
resting easy. They will both recover.
The report that Hanlein deserted the
girls when the smashup occurred is en
tirely without foundation. He was
stunned so that he didn't know what he
was doing for about ten minutes and
while in this condition he walked away
from the scene of the accident. This
probably gave rise to the report that
he had deserted the girls. Emporia

The writer witnessed a scene in the
Clyde saloon on Wednesday evening ,
that made the blood run swiftly and hot.
It was the spectacle of a lad five or six
years old dancing to exhaustion to the
music and patting of a gang of scamps
that ought to be on the stone pile. The
father of the boy was among the gang ,
and the price the little fellow received
for his dancing was a glass of beer , he
being placed _ on the bar to drink the
stuff , the while the gang urged him on
in the drinking. THE TRIBUNE calls
attention to the fact that this was an
open violation of the express language
of the Slocum law and an outrage on
humanity and a disgrace to this com
