Monday afternoon as Mrs. J.H. Hayhurst was coming from the creamery her horse became frightened at a train going south and ran away. She was thrown from the buggy in front of Burlini's store and the horse turned the corner at Hull's office, the buggy striking a window, breaking both glass. The horse got loose from the buggy and was caught on the west side of the track. Mrs. Hayhurst was hurt some, but not seriously. The buggy was quite badly wrecked.

TWO BIRTHDAYS CELEBRATED AT J.H. HAYHURST HOME
As the birthdays of Mrs. Cecil Beaver, Mrs. J.H. Hayhurst and son Ivan, all occur within a week, it has been the custom of the two families to have a birthday dinner together, so last Friday, Mar. 5th, Mr. and Mrs. Beaver went to the Hayhurst home for a 6:30 birthday dinner. Later in the evening, Mr. and Mrs. E.J. Brown, Mr. and Mrs. J.U. Hayden and Mr. and Mrs. T.A. Hayden arrived with refreshments, and Mr. Beaver went out to their car and brought in their share of the feast. The affair was a complete surprise to celebrate Mrs. Hayhurst's birthday.
