Horses Need More Sense, 1907

From the Carden City Items column in the Skidmore New Era (Skidmore, Missouri), September 19, 1907, page 8:

Mart Carden happened to an accident Sunday evening while on the way to Barnard that might have proved fatal but for his forethought in making his daughter get out of the rig. While near Barnard they met an automobile containing a doctor and a blacksmith. The horse became unmanageable and began to whirl around, throwing Miss Carden’s trunk and suit case off, breaking the shaves and doing other damage. The doctor went and got a rig for them to continue their journey in and Monday the blacksmith had a job.

If horses don’t get more sense I don’t know what will become of us, as automobiles are becoming so common it is not safe for a woman to start out driving with out being accompanied by a man and even then it’s not unless one is driving a very gentle horse.
