Amidon, daughter, Elva, Sid Davis and Chas Neinas were on their way to Melrose in the former’s car about 11 miles below Neillsville very bad roads were encountered.  On top of a hill near a sharp curve the car skidded in the sand and ran against the end of a log near the road side, the sudden stop throwing Mr. Davis headfirst out of the auto, landing in a brush pile about 10 feet away.  The rest remained in the car, but were badly shook up.  Luckily nobody was hurt.  The party drove to Neillsville in a livery that night and after a few minor repairs were made on the car the next day it was again in good running order on Monday.
