Last Saturday evening, the local authorities and several of Gillette’s citizens were kept on guard at the Burlington crossing all night waiting for the appearance of a Ford Roadster containing a man that was supposed to have assaulted a woman tourist at Arvada. However, the man never appeared in this part of the country and since we have been informed that the report was a mistake and that instead of the woman being assaulted by a stranger it was just a little family affair and that the lady was getting her weekly whipping.

Last Saturday night was a lonely night above Weston, but the frogs in the barrow pit around the truck were singing a merry song for they had never before experienced quite such a taste in the water of the ditch. Anyway, that’s the story told by D.C. Wilhelm this week about his trucker who had tipped a truck load of ale over in the barrow pit north of Weston Saturday night after hitting a wet, slippery piece of road. Several of the ale containers were broken and the ale turned the ditch into a punch bowl. From there on the barbershop quartets of frogdom took over in harmony and discourse.

Three local men were involved in an accident July 10 near Dayton. They were Don Cale, Connie Allen and “Red” Hawley. The condition of Hawley, whose heel was crushed and leg fractured, was listed as critical at latest reports. Cale and Allen received minor cuts and bruises. The men were injured when the 1960 Chevrolet, owned by Cale struck a bridge on the outskirts of Dayton. The car was coming down a grade and the bridge was at the end of a curve. Apparently the car slid into the bridge, bounced to the other side and flipped over on its top.
