Runaway Horses at Milford Haven. EXCITING SCENE. PONY FALLS OVER ONE HUNDRED FEET. Milford Haven was on Thursday afternoon last the scene of a most exciting incident, which may have been attended with very serious consequences, but happily such was not the case. About half-past three o'clock Mr C. Hole, grocer, was driving a horse attached to a phaeton down the Priory Road, when the animal by some means became frightened and bolted off down the hill. Mr Hole, observing the perilous position in which he was placed, jumped out, and escaped with a severe shaking. At this time there was also standing outside Mr Lester's shop a pony attached to a spring cart, the property of Mr Thomas, butcher, Thornton. Terrified by the noise of the first runaway, the pony now took off, and the two animals came down the hill in the direction of Hamilton Terrace almost abreast of each other. Crossing the street here, they both made for the wooden fencing placed against the steep embankment overlooking the dock company's property at the back of the fish market. This they came against with tremendous force about 30 yards apart, knocking it to pieces. It was now that the climax was reached when the pony was seen to fall over to the ground below a distance of about 100 feet. Everyone thought nothing could have saved the animal from being dashed to pieces, so the astonishment of the spectators can well be imagined when an examination revealed the fact that it had sustained no more serious injury than a few rather severe cuts in several parts, but which were not likely to produce any real permanent injury. Mr Hole's horse dropped on the top of the bank and appeared as if stunned.
