Mister Ron's Basement #1728

This week, we are reading from the 1880 collection, 'Very Funny, Not Too Funny, Just Funny Enough,' featuring stories clipped from assorted newspapers.

Today's piece is probably by Robert J. Burdette, the Burlington Hawk-Eye Man, concerning Ladies who journey by themselves on railroad trains. It's called 'Rules for Ladies Travelling Alone.'

Time: approx seven minutes
