"Thrown From A Wagon"

About 6:15 o'clock last evening Col. James Young met with an accident,
and those who witnessed it declared that it was a miracle that it did not
prove fatal. He was driving down Union Street with a very spirited, though
perfectly safe horse. While crossing the P. & R. track at Brown street, the
front wheels of the buggy struck the iron with great force and threw the
Colonel from the vehicle. He fell head foremost and struck the ground with
the back of his neck and left shoulder. A number of bystander hurriedly
went to Mr. Young's assistance and carried him into the residence of Mrs.
Rambler. Dr. Bowers was hastily summoned and after applying restoratives
ordered Mr. Young to be taken to his home. After he was placed in his bed
Dr. Bowers made a careful examination, but could find nothing of a serious
nature. At about 9:30 o'clock last night Mr. Young began to recover from
the shock, and this morning, although feeling the effects of the fall very
much, was reported better.

A young man by the name of Palmer, who was in the buggy, jumped out,
but was not hurt. The horse ran to the barn. The buggy was not broken.

In the Middletown Journal Saturday, May 11, was James Young's obit,
having died at 9:35 Saturday morning, May 4th.
