Dr. W. G. Houseal had a call thei
other day to ?ee a patient near Dyson,
in Greenwood county. Mrs. HouseaL
concluded she would like a trip like
j that and she decided that in order to?
| to go with the doctor and so did their
j son Gustof. and he decided that in orj
der to take the trip he would rffe im
the foot of the car, as the doctor is*
driving a Ford runabout.
They left Xewberrv about 1:30
o'clock ana reached the home of the
patient a little after 3 o'clock. After
spending about an hour with the patient
they started on the return trip*
and decided to come back by Greenwood
as this trip would give the doc
tor an opportunity to pass the old
school house where he taught school
in 1 SSI and where he made the first
money to begin his study of medicine.
It is the school house near by the old
home of the editor an-d where we went
to school in the days gone by. The
house still stands and looks very t
much as it did when Dr. Houseal
taught the school. And then a little
further on is the old home of Wm. .
