It seems that when near tne torn coming into town an auto scared his horse whioh immediately shied, the wagon struck a stone and broke every spoke ont of it. Just as he turned down Ohnrch Street the wheel ran off. Mr. Hunter then borrowed a wagon and after he drove under the shed the horse jumped around again and broke the shafts of this wagon.
