of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 1/26/1897.
Last Thursday night at a late hour a horse with saddle and bridle on
was found prowling around town and fearing that some fatal accident had
befallen the rider, a trio was formed to make a search for the missing
man. In the meantime the man, who was reasonably, well -- well had
pulled himself out of the mud where he had fallen from the horse and slipped
to his room and into bed, but the searching party went right on and made
a trip of 12 or 15 miles and rounded in about 2 o'clock the next morning,
two of whom had much more the appearance of lost men all that day than
the man they had hunted. On account of the relatives to the parties
we give no names, but admonish them to do so no more.
