Editor's Note:  Shall we take bets on the winner of the presidential election?  Allen must have used a crutch more than I thought that he had one while playing football and a spare back home.  But I have to ask, if he could make it all the way back home to get the replacement, did he really need it that badly?  I feel like he could have made it through the rest of the day at school.

Bert Cash and Mabel Town were indeed married that night.  They, or at least Mabel, already had one child named Arthur born in 1883.  Sadly, Arthur died at age 21 in 1914.  The Cash family is buried in Ivory Cemetery.

Don't you think Arnie Shaw could have found out if his father owns the horses before he sold them?  Funny, well he got there in the end.
