May Survive His Injuries

GRAND ISLAND, Neb., Feb. 15.---(Special.)---Zeke Hunt, a citizen of Howard county, who was brought to the St. Francis hospital in this city yesterday, having been run down by an Ord passenger train, is considered out of immediate danger. Hunt was trying to cross the track before the train when his horses became frightened and unmanageable and ran up the track instead of keeping in the road. Hunt was thrown thirty feet in the air. His shoulder was broken and he was injured about the head, but there are today hopes for his recovery.
