Myron Hunt relates an exciting experience that occurred in a run away a few days ago. On driving into town he noticed a freight train standing on the crossing and decided not to wait for the train to pull out, but drove down below the elevators to cross the track; just as he was crossing, the ponies became frightened and started to run, the sled runners caught on the rails; consequently the ponies decided not to wait for the sled and left it and the driver on the track and finally wound up at the corner of the Stoltze lumber yard by one falling down and the other on top of it. By this time the train was in motion. Mr. Hunt had considerable difficulty in getting his sled off the track in time to save it.
