Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 9/9/1915.

Uncle Ben Huffman, who is in his 88th year, rode a young mule to Stumptown last week, a distance of some 25 miles, returning the same distance mule back.  The mule threw him once or twice, but Uncle Ben came out conqueror. - Braxton Democrat.
