riving down Jackson street at a fairy
good rate of speed, and just at the
ii-and Oi)era Jxouse. two men behind a
ast stejjper overtook them. As is
isually ihe case, the animal the ladies
ere driving objected to this sudden
elegation to "the also ran" class, and
o the best of his ability endeavored to
et first money. As everyone knows,
he next corner is one of the worst
a the city, and the spectators held
heir breath when the second buggy
cached that point. The lady driving
/as doing her best to check the pace
nd also to get the horse to take the
^ociist avenue route. But the men
ad turned up Barney street, still as
ast as their horse could travel, and
he second horse could not be swerved
rom that street. The lady, with rare
resence of mind, let him have his
/ay in the nick of time, and as it was
/heels just grazed the curb.
It seems that if a man lias any intincts
of a gentleman such things
-ould not happen. There is no excuse
or such conduct, as the runabout
/hicli the ladies were using had no
op and anyone approaching from beind
could see that the occupants
