SERIOUSLY HURT. Hon. John R. Buchtel Meets with a Severe Accident. A serious accident happened this morning to John R. Buchtel, the venerable founder of Buchtel College. Mr. Buchtel had accompanied a number of the students of the college to the State contest held last evening at Wooster and was returning this morning, rle was, as usual, in his chair in the baggage car and when the city was Beached a number hurried forward to assist in carrying him from the car. Three young men .took hold of the chair, one at each wheel and one at the back. As the chair was being lifted from the car door, the man at the back released his hold. The rolling chair revolved and Mr. Buchtel, utterly helpless, was thrown forward with his face ontheNypano track. Dozens of men sprang: forward to lift, him, while the nien whose carelessness had caused tne accident stood aghast. Mr. Buchtel was seated in his chair and the dirt and blood wiped from his face. His face was rapidly swelling from the bruises received. He said not a word however, but Gen. A. C. Voris, who was passing, berated soundly the carelessness of the men assisting As quickly as possible he was carried in his chair to his waiting carriage and taken to his residence on East Market street, where a physician dressed his injuries. Fortunately no bones were broken, but the injuries about the face were serious. The effect of the accident cannot be estimated owing to the state of Mr. Buchtei's health and his helpless condition. It is but a statement of tact that the whole City laments the accident to one of its" most distinguished citizens. IN THE HOTEL CORRIDORS. How a Country Woman Mistook Sherbet for Horse Radish. R. J.

At 12:20 last night death ended the terrible sufferings of Miss Nettie E. Cruse who was burned at the Enterprise Works fire Wednesday afternoon.
