pulled from the station hgre last
Wednesday afternoon ' for the last
time. Its last passing was little
noticed by people along the route
served by the trains for more than
twenty-one years, and a new order of
things will cause it not to be missed
in tht ß days to come. Out of date and
dinky in its make-up, the train made
its last trip with the appearance of
a deserted ste|>child.
Making the first run as conductor,
21 years ago, Captain Wooten came
down yesterday to keep Captain Cobb
company" on the last run. For more
than fourteen years, Mr. Wooten
mailed the train, quarreled and fussed,
but ever rendering his passengers the
very best service possible. He spoke
pleasantly of the train's first trip,
and mentioned the trouble he had
when his return trip the first day
was halted by a freight train wreck
between here and Jamesville. "It was
John liiggs who sent word to town
for automobiles to bring the pas
sengers to town," he said.
Captain Wooten was retired from
service the' last day of July, 1921.
Since thai time, Captain Cobb has
been the main conductor on the run.
"Now that arrangements have been
made for handling the mail and ex
press, the removal of the trains will
make little or no difference, for the
passengers quit me a good bit ago,"
Mr. Cobb stated.
