Frank Turner was very badly injured at Hennepin, the other evening. He was returning with his team and cultivator from the corn field at the close of his day's labor, when the horses became frightened and ran away, throwing him, in some manner, beneath the plow.

Son of Mr. Moreau Attacked by Horse
The Henry Republican, Henry, IL, July 26, 1883
A serious accident befell a son of a Mr. Moreau, living on the Lacon road, a few miles south of Hennepin. The boy, along with another lad, had been out hunting for a cow last Sunday and were returning home, when a young stallion belonging to John Shammel attacked the horse they were riding. One of the boys fortunately got off without any injury, but the other received one blow from the horse which laid the bone bare near the knee joint and another bad cut on the thigh. We do not remember the penalty fixed by law for allowing a stallion to run at large, but we think it is pretty severe, and certainly should be enforced in every instance where it is violated willfully. - Hennepin Record.
