REV. FATHER RYAN HURT IN BUGGY ACCIDENT*

Rev. Father Ryan, of Gallitzin, was on Monday last accidentally thrown backward out of a low-backed buggy, in consequence of the horse giving a sudden lurch to one side, while on the road from Cresson to Loretto, and falling to the earth, sustained a severe compound fracture of the left shoulder. Rev. McHugh, of Wilmore, was riding with him at the time, but maintained his position intact.
