Michael Slavin of 106 Washington Square was driving a pair of horses along Fifth Avenue about noon yesterday when they became frlghtened at a passing automobile and ran away. They dashed through West Fifteenth Street, and the off horse fell while passing under the elevated structure on Sixth Avenue.
The other horse kept on, and dragging the carriage, crashed into a plate-glass window in the furniture store of J.H. Little & Co., on the southwest corner of Sixth Avenue arid Fifteenth Street. The horse was badly cut, and Dr. Judd of the New York Hospital, after attending to Slavin, who had been thrown off the box, bandaged the animal's legs and head.
