Dr. Dye met with another very painful and serious accident last
evening. He was making a call on John Wilson and wife on Spring
and when near the residence of Joe Wilson, his horse fell catching the
Dr.'s leg under it, severely bruising and mashing the knee and
He was taken to Mr. Wilson's house, where everything possible was done
to relieve his suffering, which was very great. A young Mr. Metz
accompanied him home, arrived here at a late hour that night.
Dr. would not be brought in by those who offered to do so, stating
he had been hauled home twice and with his permission he never would
again. So he came all the way horseback, enduring the greatest
suffering. He has our sincere sympathy in his misfortune, as he
very unlucky, having been thrown from the same horse several times,
times with serious results. Dr. Dye is a very careful rider, and
his numerous accidents cannot be accounted for in any other way than
his horse is the cause of it. This horse's shoulder was hurt in
accident at the Spring fork bridge several years ago, and every time
has fallen since, it has been on the right side, and this is thought
be the reason of its bad luck. Dr. says he was never thrown from
any other horse and no other horse ever fell with him.
