Four Suits File By
One Law Firm.
(From Thursday's Daily.)
          Albert Garrison,  the well-known paper-hanger of Waldron, narrowly escaped serious injury this morning when the horse which he was driving became frightened and ran away.  In attempting to turn a corner Mr. Garrison was thrown from the wagon and alighted on his head in the street.  No one saw the accident and Mr. Garrison, who was rendered unconscious for a short time, is unable to remember just how it all happened.  Other than a few painful bruises and the loss of some skin, Mr. Garrison in uninjured, and was able to attend to his work today.  The horse was stopped in the business district of the town before any serious damage was done.
