PRESENCE OF MIND OF NEIGHBOR
SAVES A. I. FROM FATALITY
The Hon. A. W, Cobb "met up"
with what might have been a fatal
accident the past Week. Due to the
rare presence of mind of Claude ;
White we still have Mr. Coiib with
us. Mr. Cobb bad assumed a Nap
oleonlc attitude in the bed of his
wagon box, and was "bearing down" j
about tho rarity of the atmosphere,
the splendor of the waving fields,
and the cussedness of the no-see-ums.
He had inadvertently left the
lines on the ground, and the horses
thinking the no soe-um discourse
was for their benefit, "lit out". As
they dashed by Mr White courage
ously grasped the lines. The team
circled the ranch throe times. All
the while Mr. White was a close
second. His legs being shorl ho
soon lost the use of thorn, complet
ing the remainder of the circuit on
his North slope. Mr. Cobb, in the
bed of the wagon box, was a busy
man. When ho was not standing,
he was sitting, and at times he was
"culling" bolts and spikes. Bolts
and BplkeB protudlng from the wag
on box rent his being and his un
dignified position "frittered" his
composure. Tho spectacle finally
run out its course in the bottom of a
large ditch. The doctor expects Mr.
Cotib to be out next week.

fer lip if you expect to miss life's
