January 13 1928- with files from the Almonte Gazette
R. McMillan of Ottawa, appeared before *Magistrate J. T. Kirkland at Carleton Place on Wednesday charged with failure to transfer title of a car and was fined $10 and costs. For failure to return or remain at scene of an accident he was fined $27 and costs.
McMillan also made a deposit of $140 with the court to cover the costs of the cow which was run down on the road near Black’s Corners.The accident had caused the cow to break a leg and was afterwards shot. The cow belonged to Charles Hollinger.
Wilfred Hurdis, a young lad of about 16 years of age who was driving the cattle, having no paper or pencil on him took his stick and marked the number of the car in the snow. Afterwards it was transferred to paper and Traffic Officer Fred Turner was notified and took charge of the case.
