A HORRIBLE SIGHT TO SEE.
Col. Peg Leg Graham and His Collie
Dog Do a Mean Trick to a Col
ored Female Cyclist.
".I saw a horrible sight, the other
day," said Col. -Peg Leg Graham, of
Pineville, Saturday, as the boys fore
gathered to hear him talk.
"What was that, colonel?" asked an
"One day, just about noon, when
the cotton pickers were coming in for
dinner, I stood on my front porch and,
looking down the Steele Creek road,
saw something strange approaching.
I couldn't figure out what it was for
quite a while. The old woman came
out and she suggested that it was a
balloon that had lit on the ground
and was trying to move off but I
tried to think of a fair that week but
I hadn't heard of any close by; I
knew that the Mount Holly fair, the
greatest fair ever held in these parts,
had burst, and it was too ea'rly for the
Mecklenbtirg fair. But, the thing
looked like a balloon all right. As we
watched, it kept coming towards us.
It was pulling a long grade above my
house., I became more interested.
"We see so many danged new
things, these days, in the way of au
tomobiles, that I never know what
to expect next. Vixen, my old col
lie dog, watc9es for automobiles and
it takes two days to quiet her after
one passes. Sometime ago, way in
the -night; I'heard her holler like 'the
very. old Nick himself had her and
in a jiffy, she broke through the front
door, tore through 'the house, burst
out the back -door and ran clar away
from home. I never heard ,such a
racket as she kept but I knew what
had frightened her-one of those con
found-ed automobiles. The nexct morn
ing, when I got up, she was still far
from home, on top of a hill, in the
field, barking as if she had treed some
thing in the moon. I called her and
she came running, but every fuss
turned her .back and made her bark.
When I succeeded in getting her to
* the house and calmed her, she went
to the road to scent for the beast that
had scared her. I followed her and
there in the dirt saw the track of the
"But, I am leaving my story. Yes,
'me and maw watched that thing come
up the hill. It began to look like
somebody on a wheel, but I had never
- seen the like before. ,About the time
it got within two hundred yards of
the house Vixen came tearing out,
with bristles up, 'growling and bark
ing. She was mad. 'I knew then 'rhat
it was a negro on a wheel for the old
collie naturally hates a negro and a
*wheel. But, bless my soul, the negro
proved to be a great, big fat woman.
The wind had gotten beneath her
skirts and ha'd them 'blown out like a
- balloon. The old thing was having
a mig'hty 'hard time. She couldn't
ride well anyhow, much less in a gale.
Old Vixen spied her and went for
her with -a vim. Me 'and the old w*o
man were still on the porch, looking
-and laughing. Vixen 'was in her
.glory. Round the wheel she ran, first
-in front and then behind, grabbing
at 'the skirts.
"'G'-way frum here!' shouted the
"But that jus't made old Vixen hot,
'more teeth. The negro was afraid to
light and her skirts were becoming
tangled in the 'wheel. It was better
.than a sh,ow. Well, sir, when one
side of the skirt was tied and twisted
in 'the wheel Vixen caught hold of
the oter side and in two shakes of a
-dead sheep's tail the poor old colored
woman .was without a dress. The
wheel held on 'to a part of the skirt
and Vixen .fetched the other part to
'me. -There stood the rider with noch
ing left'but her 'wheel and good name.
~Maw ran in the house while I lay
-down on the porch. and laughed. The
negro ,left her wheel lying in the road
and sprinted to the nearest negro
.cabin. Maw sent her down another
~skirt and the wheel. Vixen is oppos
ed to the new woman. I saw That
"But I tell you it sure was a sight
to see. I hav'n't laughed so much
since the war. The farmer gets even
with these durned machines that scare
his horse now and then."
