Looking Back to 1916: A Horse Mishap in DeKalb

From the August 24, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1916, 100 Years Ago.

"A little excitement was caused at the Sixth Street crossing over the North Western in DeKalb this morning about 9:00 o'clock when the horse that John Crego was driving hitched to a top buggy became frightened .

"Some of the traces came loose 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.
