• THERE IS a great deal of reckless automobile driving on the business streets of Traverse City that is not receiving proper attention by the police. There is scarcely a day, and very often in the evening, that the speed limit provided by the ordinance in Traverse City is not badly fractured. If the practice of fast driving on the streets is persisted in by some of the drivers, someone will get seriously hurt and funerals will follow.
  • LEONARD HUDSON and Nona King had a narrow escape from serious injury last night when a bolt connecting the thills with the axle of their buggy dropped out, frightening the horse, and causing him to run down the street at a mad pace. The accident happened in the front of The Record building at 6 p.m. The buggy swayed from side to side until the animal slipped and fell in front of the Little Tavern. The buggy whirled around and Miss King fainted. Bystanders brought her inside the Tavern. In about an hour the horse was attached to another rig and driven home, none the worse for its thrilling experience.
