Two Men Rescue Two Children

New York, 1895

William H. Bowne and William Seaman, of Glen Cove, bravely stopped a runaway horse on Monday and rescued. the two children of Mrs. Timothy Titus. Mrs. Titus had been driving in the neighborhood of the depot, when the horse took fright and ran away. The woman was thrown from the wagon, and the horse galloped madly down the street. When the vehicle was stopped the children were found in the bottom of the wagon unhurt.
