Charlie McCartney and Goats Still "on the Go"

From Charleston, S.C., Mrs. Helen Robinson has received two postcards with natural color pictures of Charlie McCartney and his goat wagon.  Having formerly lived near What Cheer, he and his caravan have been traveling from Maine to Florida for more than 15 years - more than 80,000 miles.  His present home town is Jeffersonville, Ga., Rt. 2.

The pictures show Charlie, a dozen or more goats, and the wagon "trailer," both heavily loaded and with tubs, pails, and lanterns hanging from the sides.  His son, now 18, is with him.  The pictures are at the Patriot-Chronicle office.
