Fulton Journal April 18,1879
Mr. A.D. Mitchell's delivery team got frightened Wednesday morning at a wheelbarrow full of bushes and ran off, throwing out Mr. Collins Ross, his clerk, and Mr. Mitchells little son, injuring them, however, but slightly. Rushing along the street when they neared the College they ran over old Mrs. Rider, a pea-nut peddler, throwing her to the ground. The team was soon stopped. Very little damage to anything or anybody.
