SHAMOKIN, PA., Jan. 17.Having shopping to do in this city, Mrs. Hannah Kashner, of Coal Run, accpted Butcher Cherry's invitation to ride over in his wagon with him. Shortly after seating herself the horse ran away, flinging her in the back of the vehicle. The sides of the wagon cover were studded with sharp meat hooks. During the mile run the woman was hurled from one row of hooks to another, and her flesh was torn off in great strips and an eye was about gouged out. She is in a critical state.
