DRIVING ACCIDENT. As Mr J. Costelloe. traveller for J. J. Goller and Co.. was driving into Allendale from Kingston, his horse stumbled near the local Post-office whilst at a walking pace, with the result that the driver was pulled out of the buggy, but fortunately escaped injury, with the exception of a few abrasions. The horse's knees' were slightly marked; and both shafts of the buggy were broken. Mr H. Collins, of the Speculation Hotel, with his usual generosity, lent his conveyance for the emergency.[3]
