Arthur Opelt came very near having a very serious accident Sunday while driving east of here.  One of his horses got a sone in his hoof and Arthur got out to remove the stone and was between the horses when suddenly an auto appeared which frightened them and the only way Arthur could save himself from destruction was his presence of mind.  He jumped on the tongue and hung on to the horses necks and they ran out into a field at a terrific speed.  He managed to stop them before they reached a very great distance.  The man in the auto never stopped to see how bad the accident was.
