Auto Starts Something
An automobile rounding the corner of DeMers avenue and Fourth street about 11 o'clock this morning created considerable excitement. The auto was traveling north on Fourth street at a dangerous rate of speed and when it suddenly turned on DeMers avenue a horse drawing a cutter was almost struck with it. The frightened animal reared and backed the cutter into an elderly man who was crossing the street behind the rig. The old gentleman was very indignant when he picked himself up from the street and remonstrated with the driver, who was not to blame however. When all was explained to the old gentleman and the driver united in calling the auto driver names, but by that time he was safely on the Dakota side of the river.
