Mis* Sara HcKnight Narrow ly Escapes
Miss Sara McKnight narrowly es
caped a very serious accident this
Miss McKnight, with her little neph
ew and his nurse, was driving down
Broad street in a pony phaeton, when
the wheel of her vehicle collided with
a dray going in an opposite direction.
The collision was so severe that Miss
McKnight and the nurse were thrown
violently to the asphalt. Fortunately
the baby was not thrown out, but
caught on the floor of the phaeton. The
nurse escaped injury, but Miss Mc-
Knight was pretty badly shaken up

A St. Loul* woman had Ihe thrilling
and unique experience of kissing M*
men In a* mMiy rolnules. There I# no
doubt that Ihla ia tbe world’* record,
If It were a question of simply kins- j
ing 100 men tbe record would Mill i
hold, hut Add lo that the fact that the
men were all Kissed within two hours j
and you have a record with which j
there is no comparison In all history, j
Thl* fearless and delightful record j
maker waa Mra. C. C. Rainwater, onei
of St. Louis’ prominent society women. I
Tbe 100 men who were factors in the
record making wire (he gjldler hoys
In Co. E. First Missouri volunteers.
Every man and officer of the company
wet given a farewell kiss and a god
speed by Mra. Rainwater a* tbe com
pary lined up for Inspection at their
Cblckamanga camp. She was a sort of
mother of the regiment. She fairly
owned every man'# heart that bent be
neath a uniform In that particular
She was always the "top line" pat
roness of the company s balls and tbo
amateur theatricals. When in camp
Mrs. Rainwater was always the gueit
of honor. She was recognized as great
er than the captain, and every slight
est wish of hers waa a command to he
obejfd as became a gentleman and a
soldier. The company would have fol
lowed her to death in any cause she
led. Her love for the company was no
less than the company’s love for her.
When tjio war broke out and Co. E
volunteered for the First regiment of
Missouri Infantry, Mra. Rainwater Dlt
as though every man w'ho signed the
rolls was her son. Co. E was ordered
to Camp Thomas, at Chickamauga, be
fore Mrs. Rainwater had an opportun
ity to give the men her blessing.
Here waa the greatest event in the
life of the company becoming a part of
history without Mrs. Rainwater’S co
operation. It would never do, accord
ing to her view of matters, to allow all
this to happen without taking a hand
in it herself. She had been “first in
peace;” she would also be "flret in
war;” she w-as sure she was “first in
the hearts" of the men at all times.
Determined that th ecompany should
not get into the actual battles of war
without her blessing, Mrs. Rainwater
went to Chickamauga to visit them.
