The yoang horae we were driving awerved off to the side of the road nearly overturning the trap, and throwing my wife and ohl'd violently out on to the road. Of coarse we were all greatly alarmed. I was afraid to leave the horse for fear of hla running over my wife who was laying under ihe wheel, A gentleman who wtspaislng dismounted) and pteked them up, when we found that beyond a severe shaking and bysterlca, neither mother nor ohild was hurt. We oat the rope and let the horse go and con tinned on our way, Last night 1 was driving some friends hornet when a qow tethered on the road: placed us ia a similar danger to that^we bid already ' experienced . The eatce gentleman that oub the rope before performed a like act again and we proceeded 6a our W*y, 67 reminding those who are It the ha M * °' M aerlD K on tnß footpaths and t oadaTthai tti«j !«« no^ only endtngoring the limb but also the ilfe.ox trivelleJß, I hope the praotioe will be stopped.
