HORSE RUNS AWAY; DRAGS A. GEWECKE

Monday evening about six o’clock while unhitching the team from a cultivator, one of the horses of A. Gewecke, ran away catching and dragging him for a short distance under the cultivator.

The accident could have been fatal, only, owing to the fact that the harness broke freeing the horse from the plow. Mr. Gewecke had come in from the field and was unhitching the team and while unfastening the last tug the horse started for the barn dragging the plow and scaring the animal, causing him to run away.

Mr. Gewecke was bruised and cut a little and has been rather sore for the last few days, but thinks himself lucky that the harness broke.

The Farnam Echo ?(32), Friday, 23 June 1922
