DRAGGED UNDER A WAGON

Wm. Haller Hurt in a Runaway Accident – – Other Mishaps

This noon, Wm. Haller, an East Lewis street butcher, was thrown from his wagon in a runaway accident at the corner of Jefferson and Hanna streets. He was dragged beneath the front wheels for a block, but fortunately escaped with a few painful bruises. The horse was stopped before much damage was done. The same horse ran away a few days ago and Mr. Haller’s face was badly cut.

Horribly Lacerated

HORRIBLY LACERATED

William Haller, the butcher whose place of business is at the corner of Lafayette and Lewis streets, met with a most painful and distressing accident Sunday afternoon. He started out for a pleasure ride on his new saddle horse. The horse had evidently not been properly broken for saddle purposed, and plunged, jumped and “bucked” viciously. Mr. Haller was hurled from the saddle violently and alighted on the hard pavement on his right cheek. The cheek bone was exposed to view and the fleshy part of the face was torn loose and hung down over the chin, exposing the cheek bone and the jaw-bone in the frightful gash. Dr. McCausland sewed up the wound, and said although the injury is very painful and the gash an extremely large one, the wound will heal readily. A bad scar, however, may be the result.
