CU­RI­OUS IN­CI­DENT A cu­ri­ous in­ci­dent oc­curred on Wed­nes­day. It ap­pears that a young fel­low named Ja­cobs was in charge of a van be­long­ing to Messrs. J. Maf­fey and Sons. By some means the bit broke in the horse’s mouth, and Ja­cobs was try­ing to ad­just it, when the bri­dle also broke and star­tled the horse, which bolted. The horse col­lided with Dr. Pern’s mo­tor car in Winch­ester-street, over-turned the van, and pro­ceeded on its way with only the shafts, which had been force­ably torn away. Find­ing the sta­ble yard open it marched in. The driver hur­ried on foot by a shorter route to in­form his em­ploy­ers what had hap­pened, and was sur­prised to find that the horse was there be­fore him.
