Williams quickly turned on all the
power the car contained and the ma
chine shot away at a fifty mile an hour
clip, but when it reached the gate lend
ing out of the field Williams could not
make tbe turn at such high speed.
The bull chased him around the field
repeatedly and made desperate at
tempts to head off the car. but Wil
liams, by carefully manipulating the
■teering wheel, managed to elude the
beast, which finally became tired and
gave the frightened man a chance to
escape through the gate.

by the spot with golden shiners on my
hooks and captured two bass, one
two and one-half and the other three
pounds. I wheeled around and snag

later I had caught eight nice bass.
The cool water is refreshing to the |
