Judge J. B. Walght of this city ex
perienced a "thriller" Tuesday after
noon in attempting to get home from
Newark. He had been to New York
on a business trip and arrived in Col
umbus just In time to get a train on
the B. and O. for Newark, this be
ing the only possible route Home.
Arrived in Newark, he found the
train service tide up and, according
ly, tried to hire an automobile to
carry him away. All of the garage
Owners were a trifle "leary" and
not a one could be cajoled into risk
ing his machine or himself, for that
matter'. A 'round of the various livery
stables resulted la the finding of one
man whowas tempted by the prefer
red "ten spot." A team, was hitched
tip and the Judge and hostler started.
Everything went lovely 'until halt
the distance to Utlca was covered and
the hamlet jot. St. Louisville reached.
Here a broad stretch of solid water
Impeded their!' further. Dassaaewar
the Judge and the, hostler, the river
retused'to part a la the Red Sea wat
ers of blblicarfame.
The driver now became frightened
and threatened to turn back, but. to.
no avail. Judge Walght remained ob
durate and declared they were going
straight through to Mt. Vernon. Thor
oughly cowed, the hostler followed or

knew of a possible ford and this was
