The firm of H E, started in business in
18S4 and the energy and enterprise em
ployed by the wideawake young managers
has made their business name a synonym
for success. List year's business proved
the most pros perous in the firm's history,
but just as the New Tear was being
entered with bright hopes misfortune
came, and shattered all plans. Undaunta
ed, however, the firm will re-embarked
on a bigger at d better scale than ever.
A Six If Ue Ron.
Contractor Erickson, accompanied by
another gentleman, was driving west
ward on Fourth avenue in Moliue yester
day afternoon . In making a carve at
Seventh strait the sleigh sloughed
around and the men were thrown out.
The horse ran down tbe avenue, and fell
into tbe ditch on Fifth street. Quickly
getting up the animal ran with the rig to
Fifth avenua, nod then eastward going
clear through the city, at a wild rate. A
little later, son e farmers coming to town
reported that they had seen
tbe horse just bbove Port Byron Junc
tion. Tbe animal turned out of their
way and fell oa its knees, but got up,
and ran as wile ly as ever.
In the after loon Albert Evans report
ed that he had captured the horse and
rig on the bluff beyond Jake Warner's
residence abo.it two and a half miles
beyond Port Byron Junction. He!
thought that tte animal must have ran
only a short distance, as he seemed
ready and wili ng to run another six
miles. This is about the loBgest run on
record for a hose in this vicinity, and
shows that Mr. Erickson's horse has de
cidedly good wind, however bad his
Mr. E.-ickson wsb injured worse than
at first suppose 1 when thrown out. He
is confined to h s bed . His head is hurt,
and his back somewhat lamed. His left
hand is badly h jrt. He was dragged up
against an electric railway wire pole.
The horse was raised within about three
quarters of a m le of where caught.
