RAN AWAY WITH BIG SAFE.

While engaged in moving a big safe into the LeSueur block Saturday afternoon, the team owned by the Hodgins Transfer company, became frightened at a parade given by some small boys, and started to run away. The safe was but partially in the building, was pulled out onto the side walk and dragged up the street for thirty feet before the horses stopped. While passing thru the doors, the safe caught, and the doors were pulled loose and thrown to the walk, the breaking glass making a terrible racket. The damage to the building did not exceed $100.
