Article Description: Killed By a Horse.
Marshall, Ill., September 4.--A special from Casey recounts a peculiarly distressing
accident which happened near there yesterday. Mr. BUCKLEY was trying to subdue an unruly
horse while his little 12-year-old son stood near by watching. Suddenly the horse leaped
toward the boy, struck and knocked him down, and before the agonized father could prevent
it, the horse stepped on the lad's neck, inflicting fatal injuries.
