News: Granton (Many ill from
gas - 23 Nov 1917)
----Source: Granton News (Granton, Clark County, Wis.) 11/30/1917
Last Friday night the fumes from the exhaust of the gasoline engine used in connection with the electric lights in W.J. Thayer's new store building, all but overcame many of the dancers who participated at the Camp Fire Girls' dance there that night. The big headache and great nausea stayed with many well through the day following. Several cases too are reported where the victims were confined to their beds all the next day. But for the accident, the evening was a thoroughly enjoyable one and a pleasant social affair, well patronized and otherwise successful.
