John Bodle has an accident, 1907

From the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), February 14, 1907, page 1:

Might Have Been Worse.

One day last week while John Bodle was engaged in hauling ice from the river to his father’s ice house, his team took fright and ran away.  John was seated on the ice in the front end of the wagon and when the horses started was thrown forward and alighted in the snow, under the wagon.  His clothing was caught by some part of the running gear and he was dragged for some distance over the frozen ground and for a time it was thought that he was badly injured, but aside from some bruises he was uninjured and is now able to be down town.
