New York, NY Actor Stops Runaway, Oct 1893
Leonard Boyne Stops a Runaway.
Leonard Boyne, leading man of "The Prodigal Daughter," had an exciting time in Central Park yesterday morning. He was riding on his horse, The Boy, when he heard a girl screaming, and saw right in front of him a runaway horse tearing at full speed around the path that skirts the reservoir. He put spurs to his horse and galloped after. A mounted policeman was also full chase after the runaway, but Mr. Boyne reached it first, coming up on the off side and forcing both horse and rider against the reservoir fence. The actor helped the girl to dismount. Her foot was bruised and she received a nervous shock.
