download.jpg   A team, of horses belonging to Mr. John Steele, Ramsay, were left standing on Union street last Saturday evening. For some reason they became frightened and ran away, no person being about at the time. The animals were not recovered until Sunday morning when they were found in a snow bank near the town park in the north end of the town, having been there all night. Luckily the horses suffered no bad effects from their outing.

downloadMr. G. S. Rosamond has added a pacing mare to his stable. The animal, which arrived here Sunday from New Brunswick, has an excellent track record, and can travel a mile in a little over the two-minute mark.
