- MRS. V. H. STURM and Miss Jennie Wolfe, Head Nurse at the Grand Traverse Hospital, were driving into town from Old Mission, along with Mrs. Sturm’s little niece, when a near fatal accident was avoided. The horse, being a hospital horse, was not used to automobiles and ran up the side of a bank when an automobile approached them. Miss Wolfe was thrown from the buggy and suffered a fractured shoulder. Theron Morgan and Dick Winnie helped the three passengers to a nearby home and waited for help to arrive.

The shipment were billed as suckers, but their colors and markings were those of white fish.
