He had some difficulty in get- ing the horse, and finally offered a mttn in the croad 60 cents for the use of one five minutes. A young man work- ng for John LuDuke went out and got one of his employer's horses and irought it In. it was a high strung an- mal, and it is said that hot a few'peb- ple told-him not to take the horse in ihere. But he did. The horse was rightened as soon as it reached the inside of the tent, and soon got its feet .angled in a guy-rope and jerking iway from its keeper plunged headlong lown the center alale. After going mlf way down it turned to the left and eaped into the densely packed -audience, perfectly crazed by the crowd ^nd apparently dazed by the flaring ights. It passed through — a distance f 10 feet— knocking down and v tramping on many. Then it jumped upon a willow baby carriage, literally smnsh- ng it to pieces, but not even scratch - ng the babe therein. The horse was finally caught and taken away. The cene was terrible within the enclosure. Women screaming, babes crying, men a,nd boys rushing here and there, while he cries of the injured were heard on every hand. Many were knocked down ,nd trampled upon by the excited rowd. Cool heads assisted in caring or the injured. The Post , has a list of he Injured, a score or more, but none were killed.

STATEMENT. of the condition of the Gilbert Wins " Phantom" Gilbert of Spirit Lake, [owa, is again the champion wing shot of the world. He won the honor squarely and fairly from George L. Deiter of Milwaukee in a match last Wednesday at National park. .The icor'e was 96 to 88' in Gilbert's favor. The targets were 100 live birds to a man. Each entered the contest confidently. The betting was a trifle against Deiter, as lie had won the trophy from Gilbert at Wolson's park, Chicago, August of last year by only one bird, and as Gilbert's work of late has been of the very steady, reliable order. Gilbert had the first shoot, and started out with a steady killing until ihe twenty-second bird, which he missed. In the meantime Deiter had missed his third bird. He lost his iwelfth target and then failed to> hit the twenty-fifth. Deiter's friends, however, regained courage when he took a spurt of straight shooting for thirty-six birds, and while all this was going on Gilbert had lost three, making the game stand four lost by Deiter and ibree by Gilbert. After the sixty-first shot, which Gilbert missed, he had jlain sailing and won without an effort, jot missing a bird. Another Confidence Game. A land shark in a county west of Dickinson is working a sly scheme to confidence land owners. They persuade those who want to sell to sign a contract authorizing the agent to sell she land at a certain -price and allow him a certain per cent, of the total amount, There is a clause in the contract which makes of it a mortgage and the shark watches his opportunity and has the instrument recorded. The owner finds out his title is clouded and lias to pay blood money or pay for a law suit. The Beacon exposes the swindle and says: This fellow and company claims to be the agent for a Minneapolis firm that never failed to make a sale. A Collision at tlie State Fair.
