Ann Arbor, July 22--John Heerst, a farmer residing about three miles north of Ann Arbor, has filed suit by his solicitor, Geo. J. Burke, to the circuit court here asking $1,000 damages from the Ann Arbor railroad, for a horse which he alleges was run over and killed by a train on that road. The notice of suit does not state whether Heerst is a breeder of horses or not, but up to the present time it was not supposed that there was a horse of that value in Washtenaw county. --July 22, 1909 Ypsilanti Daily Press
