Baby Chubb’s Runaway Last Wednesday evening while Hon. R. J. MacBride was giving Mr. and Mrs. Stanley F. Chubb and their little daughter, Vivian, a sleigh ride, the horses became unmanageable and while turning a street corner all the occupants of the sleigh were thrown out excepting little Vivian. The horses ran to Staffordsville, a distance of nearly two miles, where they were stopped while running at full speed by Mrs. M. W. Reddan, whose bravery and daring feat probably saved the life of the child. Mrs. Reddan drove the team back to the city, and a thankful and happy couple were Mr. and Mrs. Chubb for the safe return of their little daughter.

A fine little party we had last Monday evening in honor of Mr. and Mrs. C. I. McKinley. The fact that Mr. and Mrs. Colfix were the host and hostess, and Mrs. Stevens one of the prime movers, is proof enough that it was in every way a success.
