Rickard'a House a Victim— tts Work in 1*own. A very narrow escape from serious accident came to Bev. Wolfe and faml- y Sunday afternoon. They were driv- ng near the Milwaukee depot with a oung horse, and the care and cattle lord had already excited it, when its lead Was turned to cross the Northwestern track on the high grade. Just as it camo to the top another horse and carriage were corning up from the other side, and without waiting it turned around, tipping tho carriage over and spilling tho occupants. Rev. Wolfe struck on his nose, which was badly swelled. Mrs, Wolfe suffered some se- rere bruises, and her lungs were seriously injured. One little boy had his upper lip cut open from the nose down, and the other was bruised, but not bad- y. The horse strung tho carriage out, ruining the top, but did no other damage. Mr. Laird, who was near by, took ;he injured folks home and they are now doing well and recovering rapidly. A SECOND ADVENTURE. Another moro exciting nnd less dan- jerous runaway happened to S. I, Plumloy and J. W. Tennant Saturday evening. They had been driving in the country with Plumley's young team and it was dark before they returned On tho way, while going at a brisk jait, the horses ran squarely into f loop ditch, and in getting out pullec Sam, who was driving, over tho dashboard. Unclo Joe sat fast, and as the team began to run urged Sam to hole on to the linos. This ho did, dragging on the ground, until, little by little they slipped through his fingers, anc then he was loft behind, while the res started across the prairie in earnest At first our landlord thought ho woulc jump out, but noticing that one lino sad been thrown up over the whiffle trees he gradually got down until ho could roach ovor nnd gather it in, am was just beginning to pull on it when the other got caught in tho wheel anc wound up, bringing tho team to a shar] stop. After calling a while Sam wn« found, and the drive to town was with out further incident. A luckier sto] for a runaway has not been reportec lately.

During tho sudden storm last Friday night lightning struck the houso o Chester Rickard, about five miles wea of town.

It also tooj: out ono studdin; and slivered it into toothpicks, tearini tho plastering a little but doing n great damage. None of tho people i; the house wero injured at all. Th lightning did not touch the roof of th houso nor any part above the lowe window. Mr. Rickard is insured in th farmers' mutual, and the company wi' repair tho damage. A CLAP IN TOWN.

The All, vtlllor, who was also injured, lived a iUVerne many years, nnd his fath& and brother both reside there now Tho News, in reporting the matter saye of the parties: "Neither Mr. Jones nor Ally hac icon drinking, and tho facts are tha ;hey wero brutally assaulted and sho without provocation. Wo want to re murk right hero that there is no botto or moro peaceable young man than Al .y Miller proved himself to bo in th nearly ton years residence of his nt Li Verne, He was a small boy whon hi camo horo, and was never known t drink or carouse or keep company wltl those who did. Wo aro very sorry fo tho Miller family in their affliction and hope that the fellow who shot Alii Miller and Deck Jones will got his jue deserts. Ho has boon hold to await th mooting of tho grand jury without bail Mr. Miller and son Henry havo re turned, and tho report that thoy wor among those who threatonod to lync Stingley is not true."

Ally star od to run and ho fired at him, shootin him through tho fleshy part of tho icj Ho then turned and fired at a bystanc or, but did not hit him. Just what th fool intended to do seems uncortair and it seems to bo tho general opinio that he was a now man, just sworn : as marshal, and hearing tho noiso c tho crowd, ho thought tho boys wot engaged in tho disturbance, which wi not true, and whon Jones put his hnn on Ally's arm and asked him what 1 wanted it appears that he got scare and thought they wore going to rcsis and hauled off and hit Jonos with h billy."

Dwlttg to tho injury suffered by Mrs. Wolfe, her work is for tho time dropped. A special feature in tho institute, and one that will commend itself, is the work in physical culture in charge of Miss Goodroll. This work has for some time been fully recognized in tho colleges, and gymnastics and tho lighter exercises which give health, strength, and grace havo been steadily encouraged until there is now scarcely an institution which doosnotmnkoaspecinlty of physical culture. But tho common schools have not done as much, and in many cases even the common essentials to health, such as good drainage, proper light, etc., havo been neglected by school boards. Tho necessity for moro attention to those matters, however, is being recognized, and tho work in this Institute willprovo immensely beneficial. Miss Goodrell has taken vory thorough training in tho Dolsarto system and lighter gymnastics, and her work in tho state has boon vory highly praised. It will result in much valuable training in tho county through this institute. Tho next lecture of tho course will bo delivered noxt Tuesday evening, Aug. 20, by State Superintendent Sabin.
