Instantly Killed

Farmer and Wife In Hospital As Result of Automobile Spill

Little Henry Rambled Into Horse and Latter Had Best of Argument

As a result of an automobile accident which occurred on the Red Trail highway about one mile east of the George Daily farm, Mr. and Mrs. Bahm are in the Mandan hospital receiving treatment for bruises sustained. The Bahm automobile is in the garage being repaired.

George Ahren was driving home in a buggy and leading a horse behind Mr. and Mrs. Bahm and son were in a Ford car driving home from Mandan. When a considerable distance away the horn was tooted for Ahren to turn out of the road to give them room to pass. Agren drove up along side of the road bank, but the horse behind the rig did not get far enough out of the way to give enough room for the auto to pass. The result was that the driver, the Bahms boy, became confused, and the auto ran into the horse. The machine turned turtle and Mr and Mrs Bahm were thrown out and badly bruised and shaken up. Young Bahm escaped injury. The horse also escaped uninjured.
