And it was all because they couldn't resist the sight of a few watermelons in a patch on the Jos. Platt farm on Loyer's Lane, which leads east from the top of the hill beyond the Ambrose A. Call state park. Platt's dog gave the alarm with his barking, and Mr. Platt fired his shotgun in air to scare the boys out of the patch.

Near the intersection with No. 169 west of iBurt, a car swung round the corner from the south at high speed and on the wrong side of the road and struck the Gross car on the right side, wrecking that side and damaging the frame-work and running gears, though the car was still in condition to be towed on all four wheels. No one was injured. Though the car which struck the Gross car was clearly at fault, the owner showed no willingness to settle damages, estimated by W. A. Ladendorff, Burt, at between $40 and $50. Mr. Gross therefore swore out an attachment, but by the time this was/secured, .the other -car had been' hauled away'by a" wrecker from Estherville. / Mr. Gross and Marshal Steward, Burt, set out in pursuit, caught up with the outfit near Lone Rock, and after some argument succeeded in getting a payment of $35 from the offending parties.
