Looking Back to 1916: A Problem With Horses

From the August 24, 2016, MidWeek (DeKalb County, Illinois) "Looking Back."

"A little excitement was caused at the Sixth Street crossing of the Northwestern (Railroad) in DeKalb this morning about 9:00 o'clock when the horse that John Crego was driving  hitched to a top buggy became frightened as one of the traces came lose and dropped around his hind feet.

"The horse plunged and reared up and started to make a quick getaway but Mr. Crego was able to get it stopped and Officer Rowe who was at the depot, ran over to the horse and held him while the driver got out and quieted the animal.
