:F0RD TRIES TO
JUMP G. N. TRACK
On Saturday last Elmer Feldfa
Ford bad a tantrum. If mulea get
balky at times and steers "go on the
prod" why is It not possible for a
Ford to get headstrong?
Elmer was engaged in using hin
car to transfer his household goods
from a house on the upper row to the
bouse formerly occupied by J. B
Dai—ay.
The car was evidently peeved be
cause of the frequent trips up the
steep hill which moving necessitated
and while Elmer was shoving a
ing machine into tha truck body of
the Ford the latter refused to stay
kmger and started of its own accord
on a short cut from tha hill s e rosa
the tracks to its destination. Elm
decided that it would be best for tbs
sewing machine tu remain with him
and so saved it but the car want
straight down over the hill and land
ed on the track below with one wheal
smashed, the radius rods broken and
the front axla sprung.
It was almost train time and John
Jaap hitched his truck op the now
sobered Ford and dragged it seras»
the track whence it was taken to a
garage for repairs.
It may be recalled Hist in other
day* the Buick of Dr, A E. Cham
berlain attempted the same short cos
with similtar results.
Eddie Kernegfaan was arrested la—
week at the instance of a frightened
car owner who became alarmed wb—
his car waa not returned on time. The
complaint was withdrawn when Km
car owner discovered that the borrow
er's wedding had interfered somewhat
with the scheduled time. The brkte
was Mias Agnes Kirvenaki of Great
Falls.
