UNHURT, THOUGH DASHED THREE HUNDRED FEET DOWN MOUNTAIN i Special to The Inquirer. ' READING, Pa., July 21. Jeremiah Hain considers himself one of the luckiest luckiest men in Reading, and is thankful that he is living to tell of his narrow escape escape from being instantly killed. He was riding on the footboard of a trolley car over the picturesque Neversink Mountain, when he was thrown off and rolled down the steep incline, a distance of about 300 feet. He never stopped until he struck a stone wall at the bottom. He was completely stunned, and it was some time before he regained his senses. He says he wouldn't undertake to do the thing over again for $1000.
