A Narrow Escape

Last Thursday I.P. Gile, while on his way from his ranch at the mouth of More creek, met with quite an accident before leaving camp in the morning on the road at Mud Springs, opposite the residence of Wm. Lass and Claud Van Thun. When he got up in the morning, about daylight he went out to feed his horses, and, after giving them oats, turned to go back to the wagon, and remembers no more. An hour and a half after a man who had camped at the same place returned from hunting his horses and found Mr. Gile lying insensible. Half an hour after he regained consciousness, having been two hours unconscious. He had been kicked on the right side of the face by one of the horses. Besides a bad looking eye, Mr. Gile is getting along nicely, being able to attend to business.
