Not illustrated. 1902 edition. Excerpt: ... and it was impossible to come to a standstill, when a dozen girls, none more than 12 years of age, were seen playing in the road, which is very narrow. The chauffeur blew his horn repeatedly, but the children paid no heed.

The automobilists left the place in a carriage, the chauffeur remaining to look after the damaged vehicle.
