Fireman J. M. Freenor Suffers Fracture of Two Ribs

Saturday was a Jonah day on the Soo line as far as accidents were concerned. Fireman J. M. Freenor, residing at the corner of Scott and Doty streets, fearing a collision with some cars which were standing on the main line at the depot at Antioch, jumped from the engine cab and sustained two fractured ribs. Freenor says he thought the cars where nearer than they were, and he thought a smash-up was inevitable. He was brought to this city on No. 7 and is now at his home. The accident happened at 3:30 o’clock in the afternoon.
