WAGON AND AUTO IN COLLISION

Saturday morning the team belonging to Mr. Arch GREEN, hitched in the rear of White's store, broke loose and dashed out from behind the buildings to the street just as Mrs. A. W. ANDERSON and son were passing in their car. Mrs. ANDERSON succeeded in bringing her machine to a stop before the collision and the horse attempted to pass between the car and another parked alongside the curb. The wheels of the wagon struck the radiator a glancing blow, passed over the front fender and overturned, throwing the horse to the pavement. The horse was uninjured and the wagon was none the worse for its overturning. The Ford was the chief sufferer, the radiator being damaged and one of the headlights smashed.
