Sensational Runaway!

Sensational Runaway: Saturday afternoon John Lisowski had his team tied to a big tie-stone near L. Tichochinski's placeon Commercial Street, when an automobile passed, the horses became frightened and started to run at a break-neck speed dragging the stone along with them. They crossed Main Street heading direct for the new bank building. Several women, among them were Mrs. Geo. Kindschy, Mrs. Fred Ziegler, Mrs. N. Cramolini and a little girl of Ellis Bigham were on the sidewalk but before they could get out of the way the team crashed into them throwing them down at the southeast corner of the bank. Mrs. Kindschy was thrown against the stone wall of the bank building and her face and forehead was bruised and lacerated in a horrible manner. Mrs. Ziegler and the Bigham girl were under the horses. Mike Haines who had run to the rescue got hold of the horses' bit and with superhuman strength threw the team back on its haunches thereby releasing the women who outside of Mrs. Kindschy were only slightly hurt.

Mrs. Kindschy was immediately taken to Dr. Hsdershide's office where by medical and surgical aid her wounds were dressed, and it was found that although no bones were broken, part of her forehead was practically laid bare. She afterward was taken to the home of her daughter Mrs. E.G. Bigham where she is recovering nicely.

Farmers and others having spirited horses should be careful about tying them on Main Street unless they have a good sound post to tie to. There are plenty of sheds back of the business houses in this city for the purpose of tying horses and it costs nothing to tie your team in these sheds where they can be tied securely and are not apt to be scared by automobiles.
