Uncle George rememoered when
Maury county was but a wilderness,
and when only a few cabins of the
earlier settlers stood, where now the
prosperous little city of Columbia is
built. He remembered when a hay,
shed stood on the present sits of the1
court house. He remembered mem
bers of the distinguished Polk family
of Maory county, and many of the
grand old men of this section who
have gone before. He remembered
the day Nathan Bedford Forest's cav
alry entered Columbia, and the stirr
ing scenes enacted (in the "Dimple of
the Universe" during the conflict be
tween the states, and immediately
Uncle George was married six
times, and was the father of thirty
six children. The last time he was
married he waa. only ninety-six years
of age, while his bride was eighteen.
Only three children survive Uncle
George, one being a son, Dock Knott,
by his second wife. Dock says he
does not know exactly how old he is.

more than twenty-one years ;her has

Uncle George was the property of
Wm. Knott of Williamson county be

JOHN R. BRADEN
PACER BELONGING TO MRS,
CAMPBELL BRttWN",; SPRING
'"'' HILL WINS GREAT RACE. '
WAS BRED' AT EWELL FABM
Driven By Johnny Thomas of Maury
County, Braden Defeats South Bend
Girl, By Walter Direct at Cranwood
, Track at Cleveland, O.
Mrs. Campbell Brown, of Spring
Hill, and for a number of years mis
tress of Ewelt Farm, is possibly the
only lady In the South and as far as
can be learned, the only lady In the
United States who is the possessor
of a race horse, bred, looked after by
herself, that has gone a mile in as
good time as 2:03.. t
Mrs. Brown bears this proud dis
tlnctlon. She is the owner and breed
er of John R,. Braden, the horse that
won the race June 1st at Cranwood,
Cleveland, Ohio, beating South Bend
Girl,, by, Walter; Direct , 2:05. In
the second heat this filly carried the
field .to.tee fcaU mile In the fast time
of 1:02U the fastest half of the year.
but Job n R., Braden won the race In
straight heats. . (
John R. Brades is by , John R.
Gentry 2:0014 and out of Braden
Girl, Braden Girl is a daughter of
Brown Hal 2:1214 and is the dam of
Hellena Braden 2:0914 and ( John R.
Braden (.2) 2:0214, her ' dam being
Kate Braden the dam of Hal Braden
0714; Braden 2:1014; Brown -Brad
en, 2:1314 and. Hal Braden 2:1214.
It is easy to see that John R. Brad
en comes by his speed honestly, and
as his record of 2:0214 shows this
race is no test of bis speed, and if
everything goes well he wjll beat his
sires record this season.
It is also interesting to note that
he was carried to the pole each time
by a daughter of Walter Direct, one of
the greatest sires the South ever pro
duced, making it purely a Tennessee
race. . .
John jR, Braden is being driven by
Johnny Thomas, an old Maury foun-
ian, and, on May 25th at, Findlay,
Ohio, Thomas drove John R. Braden
to victory in three straight heats.
The following account, of the rac
by . Ben. Scott. .Is , taKenfjo in
Cleveland Plain Dealer, of June. 1st:
Cleveland's harness, season opened
yesterdayA at Cranwood in an auspi
cious manner. John R. , Braden paced
fhe fastest mile, 2:06, ..negotiated
by a harness horse ; thjs season.
Due. to the time recorded,, the 2:07
class special pace probably was the
feature. John R. Braden, the favor
ite, won in straight heats and won
comfortably, but he had to pace one
of the greatest races of his career.
South Bend Girl was the contend'
er. The erratic daughter of Waiter
Direct was good. She chased : out
John R. Braden in the first heat In
2:08. In the second heat she car.
ried the field to, the half , in 1:0214;
the fast half of the year. But at the
five-eighths Thomas cut loose with
Jqhn R. Braden, that pacer simply
shooting to the front. He eased away
and won off "by himself. He was pull
ed up when he flipped under the wire
in 2:06. If he had been driven out
he could have negotiated the dis
tance around the 2:05 notch.
The third heat was a loaf to the
three-quarters were South Bend Girl
tried to Outsprint. John.R, Braden to
the wire. -She failed. . John showed
that he couldi sprint with the best of
themt coming that last quarter in .30,
a clip that gave him the heat and
race easily. ,-. ,
