Dear Advertiser Readers:
The long arm of the law had'reach
ed forth and the train on which we
intended to travel moved not. In the
little shed at Madden that is used for
a depot, we paced backward and for
ward looking for a train that did not
come. The little boy was to be car
ried back to Greenville that day and
we hoped against hope that our train
would come in time to make connec
tion for Greenville. A telephone mes
sage however, stated that the train to
that longed-for city had just left Lau
rens and our hopes went a glimmering.
Good fortune however appeared in
the personage of Mrs. Tom Shaw. She
is generlhs with her handsome Stude
baker and we were soon on our way.
Four women, a little boy and at Lau
rens where we stopped a few moments
for gasoline, we picked up the other
passenger-a mere man. Mrs. Shaw
is a splendid driver and a careful one
as well, and we all went merrily on
till Simpsonville was reached and a
few drops of rain fell. Our driver
threw up her hande and tragically
exclaimed, "Our chains were left at
homet" From there till we reached
the mountain city a gentle drizzle
drazzle well-just such a rain as
would delight one's soul on a Novem
ber. day-provided one was at home
by a cheering oak fire, with a brand
now book to read, and a fire full of
roasted potatoes, a popper of pop-corn,
or a pan of parched pinders. Howev
er, we reached Greenville in about 2
hours and without any untoward ac
Dr. Carpenter cheered us up in re
gard tcf the ball of the little fellow's
eye, and after a short stay in which
we all managed to loose each other in
a very laughable fashion, we turned
our faces homeward at 2 P. M., In a
steady down-pour. ''ho roads were
getting pretty slick but we glided
Our first and only accident occurred
just as we entered Owings Station.
Our car skidded towards the left-to
avert a small ditch-there our driver
gave a turn and prestol We slid into
a deeper ditch on our right.
"Sure as you live we are in it," said
Mrs. Shaw and we all echoed, "We
are sure in it." The mere man slipped
quietly out before one could realize
we were in the ditch and the four wo
men looked at one another in silence.
"Are you hurt people, are you
hurt?" came to our ears in anxious
tones from an onlooker who had seen
us head in, and it was a relieved tone
of voice, as the women came out that
he said, "Four women and not a hol

the calmest crowd I ever saw go into
a ditch." He didn't know that every
one of us was of the Dicy Langston
strain and we don't holler till we are
The mere man appeared with a
crowd of men who liberally "put their
shoulders to the wheel" and we were
soon on our again again. As far as
the writer is concerned the rest of
that ride was made In fear and treni
bling for, the roads by this time were
as slick as glass. What kept my cour
age up was the thoughts of the nice
deep routes that wo would have in go

dens. Think of the consternation that
pervaded my soul when on reaf'hing
Todd Avenue we found there Capt.
Will Terry having his convict gang
Industriously hoeing and leveling the
routes down! And had been all down
double branch hill.
I'll be perfectly frank. By the timo
we reached home my boasted Dicey
Langston courage had oozed out and
it was a pretty weak and wobbly old
lady that had to be helped up the
steps and gently put to bed with a bot
tie of camphor in her hand and a hot
brick to her feet!
Next time I start, I'll see to it that
Bess gets the chains. As for you1 dear
reader, If ever it falls to you-r lot to
head up into a ditch may it be at Ow
Ings Station where kind hearts and
willing hands will pull you out and
may you go in as gently as we did, is
the earnest wish of your loving,
