The top of a two-seated rig, in which five people were journeying from the Austin Corbin ranch, near Eagle Point, to attend the circus in this city Monday, prevented serious injury or death when the team ran away. The tongue of the wagon dropped to the ground and the buggy turned completely over as the team tore loose. The top braces prevented the wagon from falling on the women and children, none of whom was hurled to the ground.
Those in the wagon were: Ira Petty, who was driving; Mrs. Quackenbush and two children, Carl and Florence; and Miss Doris Arnes. All were badly frightened.
Arthur Rose, manager of the R.W. Hitchcock Ranch on Dry Creek, picked up the party and brought them to this city. Mr. Rose saw the runaway and said it was a miracle all were not killed or injured.
The team ran into the city and stopped from exhaustion.
Professor J.B. Horner, who occupies the chair of history in the Oregon Agricultural College, will deliver an illustrated lecture in the Page Theater Saturday evening, admission to which will be free to all, on "The Road from Jerusalem Down to Jericho." Professor Horner spent two seasons in Palestine, studying scenes of the life and times of our Lord, and photographing them, from which he has prepared about a dozen lectures, of which this one is said to be one of the best.
It is a vivid portrayal of the region made famous by Christ's parable of the Good Samaritan and by the home in Bethany of Lazarus and Mary and Martha. Here is where Lazarus was raised from the dead.
As this road rounds the Mount of Olives, the holy city bursts into view near where Jesus stood when he foretold the city's destruction. Within the city stood Solomon's wonderful temple, on the site of which that of Herod stood at the beginning of the Christian era, wherein Jesus walked and talked and worked his wonderful miracles of good deeds.
