Readsboro Man Badly Hurt

Mr. Stowe, a well known resident of Readsboro, Vt., met with a serious accident yesterday and was dangerously injured. He was engaged in repairing a building and was drawing dirt from the cellar with a yoke of oxen. Another man was at work with a pair of cattle and asked Mr. Stowe to hitch on with him to move a large stone. Mr. Stowe started to unhitch his team from the cart, and as he did so the oxen jumped and knocked him partly down and then ran. Mr. Stowe became entangled with the cart and was dragged some distance. A doctor was called and he found that Mr. Stowe had sustained three broken ribs, one arm was seriously injured, his face bruised in many places. The injured man is about 60 years old and it was feared at first that the injuries would prove fatal, but this morning he was reported to be doing well and it is now thought he may recover.
