A very exciting runaway occur
red at the depot last Thursday
morning. A young man by the
name of Shepherdson had driven
to the station with some cans o
cream, and just about that tim
a freight from the north wa
coming in on the sidetrack to
await the passing of the north
bound local freight. The horse
hitched to the vehicle began to
rare and plunge, and getting
loose from the buggy started
down the railroad track to mee
the incoming train from the
south. In its attempt to cross
the bridge it went through with
all fours, and the trainmen had
to stop and assist in relieving the
frightened animal, which was
done in a short time. Strange to
say, with the exception of a few
scratches, the animal was not in
jured, but the vehicle was con
siderably broken up. This dash
afforded some excitement to those
about the depot.

the early days of the country,
Among those whom they visited
was D. A. Young, where they took
dinner and spent several hours
most pleasantly conversing about
their younger days. They also
met many other pioneer citizens,
and Mark made Mr. Duer's visit
as pleasant as possible. It has
been over forty years since Mr.
Duer left ' here, when a young
man, and since that time he has
become financially well fixed and
is the possessor of many broad
acres near Franklin. He depart
