A Runaway

Bucklin Banner, June 7, 1901

While G. W. Emmons was attending to some business in the stores Monday his team broke loose from the hitching rack and ran away.  They went west, knocking down a lot of wire fence on the edge of town and continued their wild race for about 2 miles, when one of them became tired of the fun of running and came down to a walk.  The other wanted to run and so they circled a while and stopped.  When Mr. Emmons found them there was not a thing about the wagon or harness broken and the horses did not have a scratch.
