      Caldwell, Tex., Sept. 6--Yesterday evening while returning to his home about two miles from here Frank Stefka Sr. was badly crippled in a runaway. He was thrown from his buggy upon some stakes driven down in a gulley to stop a wash.  One arm was broken and all the skin torn from one side of his face, even the eyelids being torn away.  He was also otherwise badly bruised,  He received medical attention as soon as possible and his wounds were dressed, but he is about 60 years old and is in a serious condition.
