Kansas for Saturday night another one took the count in spite of the high cement base which the city council had constructed about each electrolier post Two men from Estherville Belmore Benson and Joe Hoovel the latter a nephew of Mrs A K Toft of this vicinity smashed into the cement base in front of the power house with a Dodge automobile tore the electrolier post and base from their moorings and smashed the light globe The pest was not broken as has usually been the case in similar accidents It is a mystery how the occupants of the car escaped without being more seriously injured The front of the car was badly damaged the wind shield was broken and the frame badly bent Mr Hoovel was thrown against and quite badly cut and bruised Mr Benson who was driving not being injured to any great extent Both men were able to leave for Estherville the following day The street lights were lit when the acci dent occurred but the windshield and front lights were so badly blurred with mud that the driver failed to see the electrolier in time The car must have struck with considerable force for the heavy cement base weighing nearly a ton was shoved quite a dis tance along the pavement Return from Outing in Minnesota Mr and Mrs O W Davis of this city and Mr and Mrs Chris Follett son Carlton and Mrs C Frank of Sioux City returned home last Thurs day from a three weeks outing at Alexandria Minn making the trip by auto Oscar as spokesman for the party reported a hilarious time He complained that the kind of fish he caught and wanted to keep the na tives threw back in the lake in dis gust Oscar was unable to convince the natives that a pickerel is an edible fish and not a reptile he was in Rome and was compelled to do as the Romans did On the return The car slid down afive foot embank ment and landed in a patch of sun flowers Nobody was injured and the car was not even scratched A truck from Merrill pulled them out sof the ditch and they drove on to Sioux City Oscar was not at the wheel when the accident occurred the ladies insisting that Mr Follett being a younger man with better eyes should do the night driving has the laugh on them for just as the ladies were remarking how safe they were with Mr Follett at the wheel the car went into the ditch Oscars first words were Now why did you drive down here BUSINESS MEN BEAT SHOPMEN DEFEATED STRIKERS TEAM BY SCORE OF 11 TO 5
