A Runaway Horse in DeKalb in 1918
From the September 5, 2018, MidWeek "Looking Back"
1918, 100 Years Ago.
"A farmer's horse hitched to a single buggy became frightened at a puffing engine lst night while waiting to get across Seventh Street in DeKalb and when the gates were raised, the animal started on a gallop and became unmanageable.
"Fortunately, the North Seventh Street thoroughfare was not a busy one at that time of the accident and the runaway horse had the entire street to himself."
