Yesterday afternoon crowds on the I
street witnessed one of the most thrill- C
Ing runaway scrapes that has been
staged on the public square in many
a day. A two-mule team, driven by a
negro, Jack Griffin, dashed into the
public square at the Peoples bank
corner and almost circled the Iluare
twice before finally being brought to a
halt. The drivel- hung tightly to the
lines at iminent peril to himself un

of the team by hitting one of the
mules with a large plank and almost
felling him. This enabled .Jlke Ken

with the teami and finally stol) them by
a very brave effort. Jack GHillin, who
narrowly escaped serious injury, Was
