There is a story going the rounds
this week about one, Chris. Whlttaker,
a well known blacksmith and imple
ment man of this city, and who up
until last Monday hud always enjoyed
the reputation of being a brave man
even though it is true, perhaps, that
he never participated in the battle of
Bull Buu. It feems that he borrowed
a horse aud buggy from his sister, and
while driving to the depot, whither he
was bent to transact a little business,
the horse became frightened and in
edging to one side, caused the harness
to become tangled up, thus causing
Chas. to feci as though something seri
ous was about to happen, whereupon
he wart seen to desert the rig, and It
was only after a friend had came to
his aid and consented to lead the horse
back' up town, that he was persuaded
to again get iuto the buggy. Such
acts as these deserve a Carnegie medal?
