And This Ain't No Bull from 1901


Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/27/1901.

Dow Collins and wife and son were visiting friends in Ritchie county last week, returning this.  Dow put on his boy's red hat and went out in the field where Manley Collins' bull was, and the bull got as mad as he did when Henry Morrison went up the road with them big dahlias, and went for him, and in the fight the bull made it to much for him and run him to the house.  With the aid of his wife and daughter and four sons and a dog he got away by jumping a five foot barbed wire fence.
