Otto Bredeson, a Spanish American war
veteran who was thought to be dead, has
returned to his family in Beloit after an
absence of 12 years but plans only a brief
visit before resuming his globe-circling adventures.
Two Northwestern freight trains collided
head-on in Clinton; an open switch resulted
in the crash. Three hoboes were riding in
an empty boxcar but were not hurt.
A horse owned by W.J. Dougan broke its
tether and started for home on Colley Road
while the owner was visiting his sister on
Bushnell Street, Beloit. Dougan walked
several miles home and found his horse
and buggy waiting for him near the stable.
