Saturday on Hillier's farm on Rock

a close call. He rents the land of Mr
Hillier and was cutting grass. His
horses took fright and while the ma
chine was in gear ran away. They
ran a considerable distance into a
clump of willows and there broke th.-?
tongue and other parts of the mower.
Mr. Johnson sustained a slight injury
to his right hand. The cause of the
runaway was Drew Donaldson driving
through the cornfield on a road tint
runs to the river in his automobile.
Neither party saw the other until altjr
the accident. It is presumed that the:
horses got a glimpse of the machine
and started. Outside of the breaking
of the machine it was a very fortunate
affair for Mr. Johnson.
