Mrs. Louise Weller of Cranetown, was seriously injured in a runaway Sunday morning near Sauers Church. She and her grandson and granddaughter, Fred Weller and Miss Carrie Weller, were driving to church when the mule became frightened at a passing vehicle and ran away, throwing all of the occupants out of the surrey.

Mrs. Weller, who is 83, had her leg broken near the ankle and she was otherwise injured about the body. Because of her age her condition was thought to be serious, but she was reported to be resting well today and it is hoped now will recover. Mr. Weller and Miss Carrie were not seriously injured.
