A very peculiar accident happened to Mr. M. Greer the other day. He has a tub with which he draws drink from his well, unfastens it and carries it a short distance to water his cattle. One of the animals got its head wedged tightly in the tub, by means of its spreading horns. It couldn't see, of course, and cavorted aimlessly around. Mr. G. tried to head the quadruped off and relieve it, and while engaged in this humane endeavor it lowered its head, a la billy-goat, charged, and struck him amidships with the tub, folded him up, and tucked him through a wire fence.
