Rube Clark and his four horse team narrowly escaped death last Friday evening. He was crossing the track west of town with a binder
where, owing to an imperfection in the track, it became stuck. Suddenly he discovered that passenger train No. 2 was bearing down on him at full speed and putting the whip to the horses, they pulled the tongue out of the binder just in the nick of time. The binder, which was a new one, was struck by the engine and badly demolished.
