animal took fright from the pasrtlng
street ear and Jumped to the sidewalk.
The driver was thrown from the seat
and the pony dashed .along the street
at a furious rate. Those who saw the
young man fall from the gig thought
that he was killed. His head struck
first and he laid unconscious on the
street; but he revived quickly and soon
recovered consciousness. The horse
continued on and at the corner of Wil
low street almost ran over two chil
dren. At Terppe's drug store the cart
collided with a tree and was loosened
from the animal. At the corner of
Plttsiton avenue and Birch street by
standers stopped the horse.

A Great Drumu Which Is Being Presented

terday delighted with this drama, "The
Indian Hero," which was presented by

The- plot turns on the scheming of
Philip Morgan, an adventurer, who suc
ceeds from time to time In thwarting
the good work and efforts of the Indian

audiences are held as if spellbound
until the last act, the death of the ad
venturer, clears nil the difficulties.
