HAD NARROW ESCAPE.
Mail Carrier Brooks Goodman Slicks
to Duty In Spite of Danger.
Mr. Brooks Goodman, rural mail
carrier on Mountvllle No. 1, had a j
very narrow escape last Friday out
near Lisbon while making Iiis regular
trip with the mail. When Mr. Good
man reached Beaverdam Creek the
water was some thirty feet out from
the bridge. He was determined,
though, not to let a little water and
danger interfere with his duty, so he
started in with his buggy to reach the
bridge and if possible cross the stream
The creek, greatly swollen from the
big freshet, proved too strong a cur
rent and man. horse and buggy were
swept many yards down the stream
and completely tinder the rushing wa
ter. In some way, Mr. Goodman man
aged to get the horse from the buggy
and both swam out together to the
bank, Some idea of the nerve requir
ed and the depth of the water can be
seen from the fact that late Friday
afternoon the water was so deep that
the buggy of Mr. Goodman was en
tirely hidden beneath the water.
Like a majority of the rural car
riers, Mr. Goodman never lets danger
or inconvenience prevent him from
doing his duty. He has been the rider
on this route for seven years and has
never missed ? single day. He is
prompt, accommodating and to use a
slice of slang, "always on the job."
