Great credit is due Dr. Jamison for making the celebration on the Fourth such a grand success. Not every professional man would give the time and money he did to make a fine show for other people free of charge. Therefore we will, through the GAZETTE, give the doctor a vote of thanks and vote him the leading man on entertainments, enterprise and success. People from Chicago, Waukegan, Lake Villa, Wadsworth and all the surrounding country were in attendance and all pronounced it fine. The ladies sold all their ice cream, lemonade, etc., and could have sold a great deal more. E. Payson Dodge, Wm. Rose and R. A. Martin made the display assisted by the doctor. When the "revolving sun" was displayed at the last we thought it must be the Chinese War.

Badly Hurt
George Dodge, of Millburn,
injured in a Runaway.
Shortly before 11 o'clock today, the horse belonging to George Dodge of Millburn, took fright at a street car and ran away. Mr. Dodge, who was holding the animal by the bit at the time of the car passed, was hurled to the ground and his left shoulder dislocated. He was rendered unconscious by the fall and the buggy passed over him.
Upon regaining consciousness Mr. Dodge was removed to the home of Dr. Tombaugh who reduced the dislocation and the patient is resting as easily as the nature of his injuries permits. He was driven home this morning by Dr. Tombaugh's son.
When the animal broke away from Mr. Dodge it ran south on County Street and was stopped. The top of the buggy was torn off. The breaking of the bridle is responsible for Mr. Dodge's injury and the runaway.
