Riddick, NC, during 1882

August 31, 1882 (The Commonwealth)

We have always heard it said, “Beware of a mules hind legs,” but a Mr. Riddick, near this place, has sufficient cause to remember the front part of a mule. We learn that a few days ago while plowing in the field he stopped to go in front of his mule, and the mule being spiteful, caught him by the leg, jumped a ten-rail fence, carrying man and plow over at one leap. Mr. R. was considerably bruised, but not seriously injured, we are glad to learn. In the future he will beware of a mule’s strong teeth.
