Horses Ran Away----Young Lady Badly Injured.

Quitman, Ga., February 13.----(Special.)---Yesterday afternoon Messrs. S. H. Wade and West and Misses Agnes Oglesby, of Arkansas, and Kate Oglesby were out driving in a double vehicle when a horse attached to a bakery wagon became frightened and ran away striking their trap and tearing it up badly, throwing the whole party out. Miss Kate Oglesby was cut across the forehead and throat and her back injured. A doctor went at once and attended her injuries, but it can't be said how serious her injuries are. None of the others were hurt, as the horses stood perfectly still. The driver of the wagon was thrown out on the ground, but not seriously hourt[sic].
