Description
Full Text

A serious accident and break up occurred on the gravel road about a mile east of the village to one of our farmers coming to market with a load of grain. After crossing what is commonly known as Boyle's River the road being icy the wagon commenced sliding and in a moment of time the wagon team and driver was over the embankment and to the gully beneath a distance of about 20 feet. Neither the team nor driver were much the worse for the shake up but the wagon suffered seriously. Such dangerous places should be well guarded by a strong railing with posts firmly set in the earth.
