Creed Takes a Dip in 1909

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 2/2/1909.

W. C. Brooks, a prominent citizen from Bigbend, came in Thursday evening aboard the tugboat "Night Owl."  Mr. Brooks met with quite an accident which might have proven fatal had it not been for the quick action of some of the dock hands.  When he walked from the boat the stage plank broke, and he fell into the river, but was rescued before much harm was done.
