Woman in Starrucca. whose daughter
was ill u few days since, for want of
a horse, rode n 2-year-nld bull to the
house of a physician. There and back
was a distance of ten miles. On the
return trip she started live minutes
ahead of the physician and arrived ut
her home half an hour ahead of him.
He drove a Rood roadster, attached to
a Ris. When within tl mile of her
the bull saw a man with a red
shirt, and, with n loud roar, ho dashed
ahead. The driver was compelled to
lash his horse unmercifully to escape
certain disaster. The woman said the
bull was rnther ton thin to ride with
out '.a saddle, nnd, ns she expressed it.
"pretty, lad Klttin' on iirIii after the
wind strikes one awhile." So far as
known, no other woman In Pennsyl
vania ever rode a bull at high speed
over a roiiRli country pike.
