T. Edgar Conway rescued Ellie, Veda, Fern, and Winston Wilson from a runaway, Center, Texas, May 25, 1910. Conway, 25, sawmill foreman, whose right hand had been badly cut and was bandaged, ran and grasped the bridle of a horse, which was driven by Mrs. Wilson, 34. Pulling a buggy, the horse was plunging and rearing wildly. Conway was lifted from the ground several times as the horse reared, and he finally lost his hold. He fell to his knees and was struck on his face and both shoulders by the horse’s hoofs. He rose, grasped the bridle again, and, after a brief struggle, threw the horse to the ground. Mrs. Wilson, Fern, 13, and Winston, 3 months, were assisted to the ground, and then Conway ran and lifted Veda, 5, from the buggy. The cuts on Conway’s hand were reopened, his face was cut, and his shoulders were bruised.
