As a small mob of cattle were being driven through the town one of them charged into the bar door of the Pacific Hotel and chased Mr Harrop, traveller for Messrs - Clark and Sons, through the bar into the back room, but Mr Harrop managed to escape. The bullock then made for Colonel Fraser, who was standing with his back to the animal, quietly writibg a memorandum. Luckily a chair intervened, which the bullock caught on his horns, thus saving the colonel from serious injury. He with others in the room managed to escape. Beyond the breaking of two chairs, the bullock did no damage. On proceeding up Shortland the same animal charged into the Imperial Hotel He put his head through a plate-glass door, and then went out again, doing no other dam age.
