Uncle Mose Green Again Gets Reckless(?)
UNCLE MOSE GREEN AGAIN GETS RECKLESS(?) When Uncle Mose Green and the ; editor were boys, and remember ( the editor was a boy a few years later than Uncle Mose we were accused of being a bunch of rowdy youngsters. All boys have, some time during the young and ambitious lives have had that same finger pointed at them probably from the old Biblical days down even to the present generation. In the good old days, when we were boys, we had no automobiles, no good roads — just a horse and buggy if we were fortunate, and the good old country road, but we £ot reckless — did we—and occasionally we had a runaway and accidents. We have never been in accord with those people who in a way are always butting into other pe'/- ple's business and could, can and do point the scorning finger at the youths of oui' land just because they happen to be full of vim. and vitality and get up and do things to work off this power. But admitting that Uncle Mose was rough and ready in his younger days just for sake of argument we ask' you in all sincerity if you think he has outgrown, that boyish habit. Here's the story: Last Monday he drove his car to town, and set his mind on parking said car between the lines just east of Hall Brothers. He parked east of Hall's all right, but it was against the brick wall. Lizzie climbed the curb without an effort, crossed the sidewalk and wham! After the sudden stop an inventory of damages was taken. The wall still stood, Uncle Moss was safe and sound physically, but Lizzie sustained much bent sheet iron and a twisted undercarriage. No he was not rough, neither was he rowdy. Just a mechanical braking system gone to the bad.
