Collission With Herd of Cattle
Near Fcrt Crook Tuesday
From Thvi-sdavs Dallv.
Tuesday evening while Fred
LugscJi and wife and C. K. Murphy
and wife were motoring to Omaha
they had a very strenuous time as
the result of the car runing in
to a herd of some twenty head of
cattle on the highway near Fort
According to the members of the
auto party they were following a
Ford car on the road that was rais-
' ing more or less dust and that they
j were onto the herd of cattle which
I was being driven along the road
south by Joe Miller of La Platte, the
owner. As soon as the party saw the
cattle, Mr. Murphy applied the
brakes and the speed of the car was
not over twelve miles an hour when
they rolled into the forefront of the
herd. One of the excited and enraged
bovines drove her horn into one of
the front lights of the car and put it
out ot commission and to tne mem
,l0rs of the party there appeared to
1,e no damage done to any of the cat-
ie at mac ume.
When the auto reached the paving
at the South Side they were accosted
ly Officers Jackman and Fleming of
the South Side police force and held
for a short time as Mr. Miller had
called in from Fort Crook that one
of the cattle had suffered a broken
leg. As there was no evidence to
hoid the parties they were allowed to
go. Mr. Miller not appearing.
On their return trip the autoists
pgain passed the herd and state that
jthey counted the cattle and that all
of the twenty were there and none
apparently injured and at the time
of the accident Mr. Lugsch had got
ten out and looked to see if the cat
tle were injured in any way but fail
ed to find any damage had been done
aside from that inflicted on the car.

out to La Plattee yesterday after
noon but the owner of the supposed
injured animal was unable to pro
