from the pages of the Waukegan Daily Sun 18 July 1905
Fears Entertained for Results but Nobody was Hurt
Even the horses were "crazy with the heat" today. There were two runaways and one of them came near being a very serious one.
Merchant's delivery team started from near their store and ran at a terrific rate across the bridge and up Genesee street to Pearce's corner. Arrived there they were going about as fast as horses could run on a warm day and one of the animals slipped, went to the ground and they slid along. They stumbled along and finally both horses landed upon the sidewalk and continued sliding. Dr. Pearce believes that if the telegraph pole had not been on the corner, they would have dashed through the new plate glass window.
Jake Dietmeyer Has Close Call.
Jake Dietmeyer happened to be passing across the street as the horses came along and he had to make a run to get clear of them. In his haste he became so excited that he dropped two of four electric light globes he was carrying and a couple of explosions occurred which added to the excitement.
Mr. Dietmeyer managed to get clear of the horses just in time to avoid getting run down. Several other persons along the street had narrow escapes from being thrown under the horses' feet.
The rig escaped without serious damage and the horses, singularly, were only slightly scratched.
Stoltz Horse Also Runs.
Drayman Stoltz's horse also was apparently affected by the heat and inspired with a desire to "cut loose". It tore up Genesee street and also fell in front of Pearce's drug store. The animal was then inclined to have a rest and would not or could not get up. Finally Ed. Heydecker came along and brought in to use some of his old-time methods of raising horses. He obtained some planks and 2x4's and in a short time had the animal on its feet.
