Left Horse and Wagon Behind

New York, 1895

A poorly dressed stranger drove into the sheds of the Fountain House at Flushing on Thursday with a bay horse and road cart, and requested the hostler to feed the animal. He then disappeared and nothing has been heard or seen of him since. It is thought that the rig had been stolen.

—The Long Island Farmer, Jamaica, NY, Feb. 1, 1895, p. 1.
