Hermann's Horses Ran Away.

New York, 1895

A four in hand team of horses belonging to Professor Hermann were frightened by a train near the railroad station at Whitestone on Saturday, and ran away. All four horses were injured, and the carriage was badly damaged.

Six Months for Theft.

Philip Clark, of College Point, was on Friday arrested on the charge of stealing a silver watch belonging to John Finnegan. When arraigned before Judge Beiderlinden he pleaded guilty and was sentenced to six months' imprisonment.

Accident to a "Trailer" Car.

A trolley car on the Calvary and Lutheran cemetery branch of the Steinway railroad fell over an embankment at Maspeth, Sunday afternoon. The car was a light open one and was being pulled along by a closed motor car. When the accident occurred the two cars were on their return trip from the cemeteries to Long Island City. The twelve passengers of the "trailer" were badly shaken up, and one or two of them injured, but none fatally.
