A. AVE ST KJTD RUNAWAY. Anthony Fabaeker Injured In an' Accident Lait Nifht. Anthony Fabacher, the restaurateur, was badly hurt in a runaway accident out near Wast End last night. He and his wife and two little onea were driving in his barouche after the concert at the lake, and when the were a short distance from the end on the shellroad one of the traces became detached, frightening the animals. They plunged towards the canal, but Mr. Fabacher succeeded in turning their heads for . the bushes on the opposite side. At this moment the tongue of the barouche broke and the animal lunged forward at such a terrific gait that it was manifestly ,no longer possible to bring them under control. Mrs. Fabacher and ths little ones -leaped from the vehicle and sustained practically no injuries, but Mr. Fabacher was not so fortunate. He lell forward and was dragged for a little distance, his face being plowed into the shells and both his knees being also badly bruised. He was a little alarmed, and not being able to move his right leg and feared it' was dislocated. Though exceedingly painful, hlu injuries did not appear serious last night. After the accident some passing bicyclists came to the rescue of the party and succeeded in summoning another vehicle. The horses dashed on for a short distance further, upsetting and smashing up the barouche sad then stopped and were captured. All that could be done f o . allay the suffering of Mr. Fabacher was done by friends at the Half Way House, and he was taken' thence in a carriage to his home, on Canal, near Broad, ne was at no time unconscious, and it was not thonght that his Injuries would prove to any extent dangerous.
