The heavy rain of last Thursday night nearly cost the life of P. McFlint, a cab driver for the Van Order Livery Company.

Ballard, the 12-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. W. B. Robinson, 1026 Ashland avenue, was riding home in the cab. A portion of the street at Tenth and Greenwood had caved in and the deep water made it impossible to see the hole. The cab upset, falling on the driver. Young Robinson kicked the glass window out of the cab, crawled out and ran to the home of S. S. Greiner [unclear] Greenwood avenue, for help. McFlint was making an effort to keep his head above the water and when taken from under the cab it was found he had two ribs broken. He was sent to the Evanston hospital.
