A man named Henry B. Thomas was gored by a bull on Sunda6y morning. The bull belonged to Mr. Okey, and at the time of the occurrence Thomas was engaged with others in rescuing a bullock frm a creek. The bull rushed at Thomas, goring him severely on the right thigh, and had he not the presence of mind to crawl through a wife fence which was near, it must certainly have fared worse with him. He was brought to the hospsital at noon, where his injuries were attended to.
