Trouble on Cornie Bridge

The Gazette
May 17, 1899

While Mr. S. D. Nutt and his son, of the eighth ward, with a wagon and team, carrying a bale of cotton to Junction City, were crossing the big Cornie bridge, the team became frightened and backing off the bridge, tumbling into the stream where the water was ten feet deep. Mr. Nutt and his son jumped from the vehicle in time to escape a ducking. The mules finally extricated themselves from the wagon and swam ashore; but the vehicle and bale of cotton had to be “fished’ out.
