Short News Items from 1877

Harry Linderman, the youngest son of J.W. Linderman, had a very narrow escape from being killed last Tuesday. He was riding with Colonel Davis on a load of lumber when he fell off, falling in front of the hind wheels. The Colonel stopped the horses as soon as possible and before the wheel had passed over the little fellow, it having shoved him along the hard road a short distance. He was somewhat bruised on one hip, though not seriously injured. Had the wheel passed over him, in all probability it would have killed him. The accident happened on Court street, near Mr. Barber’s residence. (Cheboygan Northern Tribune, July 21, 1877)

Mr. David Rorick, agent of the American Central Fire Insurance Company was in town last week on business connected with his company. (Chetopa Advance, October 25, 1877)
