A Narrow Escape
Harbor Springs Republican
Fortunately she had caught hold of its tail--she carried it to her house which is some distance away, and then to a neighbor's house across the street. Her neighbors soon informed her that the animal she had so courageously tackled and which she had in her possesion, was nothing less than a sharp-eyed, pretty black and white polecat. Mrs. Morrice did not faint away by any means, and escaped without any damage. The animal was shot then and there.
