TERRIBLE RUNAWAY HERE ON
SUNDAY—LOOKS AS IF Mrs. J. C. HAKES
OF ANSON WILL DIE.
It is a disgrace to the town to
have such hills and roads. The party
were driving down the Connell
hill. one of the worst Hills in the
county. when the pole -pulled out of
the neckyoke ring. It dropped to
the ground and the horses ran away.
At the foot of the hill the rig piled
up in a sad and fatal mixup. Mrs.
Hakes sustained internal injuries
nd was removed to the Northwestrn
hospital. Four of her ribs on
he left side are broken.
Her daughter, Mrs. Mamie Siddeus
and Mr. and Mrs. Truman Siddens
were slightly injured. The doctors
think Mrs. Hakes will die.
