Saratoga, N.Y., Aug. 25. -- MISS FANNIE BIDEN of 871 Union Street, Brooklyn, who for several weeks has been a guest at Congress Hall, was probably fatally injured on South Broadway, near Circular Street, this morning.
Accompanied by her sister, MISS MARY BIDEN, with whom she was walking, she started to cross the street, when both were knocked down and run over by a runaway horse.
They were taken in an unconscious condition to Congress Hall, where it was found that FANNIE was suffering from concussion of the brain, bruises of the shoulders, and laceration of the muscles of the back, and that MARY'S injuries consisted of bruises and lacerations of the arms and shock.
FANNIE was still unconscious this evening, and the attending surgeons, Dr. Straus of New York and Dr. G. F. Comstock, fear that she cannot recover.
