THE WAYNESVILLE MOUNTAINEER
Freight and Express Busi
ness in Hazel wood Shows
Marked Increase Over '35
Agent J. E. Whisenhunt Finds
Express Business Up 30,
And Freight 27
Rv Tom Reeves
Express business at the Hazelwood
office during the months of JanuaTy,
February, and March 01 wis year was
thirty per cent better than during the
same period last year, according to
the Hazelwood agent, J. E. Whisen-
hURevenue obtained by freight for
warded and received showed the same
phenomenal gain in the same months
with an increase of twenty-seven per
This splendid increase is due to a
general growth in business, as well
as an upward swing in output from the
tannery and furniture factory, it was
learned. The recently established
local pick-up ot express and freight
has played an outstanding part in
getting business for the company.
Recently the tannery sent three
car loads to several points in the
northeast, while last week five or six
car loads of leather were forwarded
to points in the north, northeast, west,
Unagusta Manufacturing Company

having already 6ent furniture to the

Colin Mclnnis, until recently con
nected with a manufacturing firm in i
Hazelwood, sent a shipment of local
furniture to his new home in Africa
J. M. English Sons and Company,
have sent many cars of lumber on
long hauls. Recently car loads were
sent by this firm to Astora, New
York, and East Cambridge, Mass.,
a well as numerous cars of lumber
to joints in North Carolina and Ten
nessee. Cars from the Unagusta Manufact
uring Company leave Hazelwood to
break bulk at Spencer. For example,
on last Saturday shipments went
from this firm to Wooster, Massachu
setts, and two bo Boston. The same
carfi had commodities bound for
twenty-five or thirty other places.
"The Royal Pilkington Co,, is send
ing more goods and receiving more
business than anytime since I came
here' in l'.Ki!i, having many times from
fifty to seventy-five bales to be sent
to various places of the United
States," according to Mr. Whisenhunt.
The local agent continued, "When
I came here on December 1, 1933,
freight business was $9,000 to $12,000;
now it hag increased to $18,000 to
Passenger business has also shown
an increase with hundreds of people
taking advantage of an improved
schedule and a cheap mileage rate
of one and one-half cents per mile;
however, most of the interline or long
haul passenger business is lost to
Atiheville, the place where the tickets
are usually purchased.
In this "Hazelwood office telegrams
and money orders are handled besides
the isplendidi freight, express, and
passenger business. The office is open
from eight in the morning until five
in the afternoon, and splendid con
nections allow no business to lay over
in Asheville during the night.
Mr. Whisenhunt has been connected
with the Southern Railway Company
since 1910. He was at Whittier for
twenty-one years before moving to
Hazelwood to fill the position left
vacant by Mr. Murray. Mrs. T. B.
McLain, a clerk for the Southern for
more than fifteen years, works in the
omce with the agent,

Time and time 'again I have heard
the remark: "The winters are not
as cold as thev used to be.''
"Vou, living in Haywood county,
have listened to the same story. The
older people recall to mind many win
ters when the weather was much cold
er and more disagreeable than it has
been during the past year.
I have been told of the times the
creeks froze until it was impossible
for animals to get water. I have also
been told of the winters when inches
upon top of inches of snow, deeper,
yes, far deeper, than the little flakes
which cover the roads, woods, pas
tures and field of the present-day
world. Some place in the back of my
mind it appears that 1 'recall stories
of snow so deep tluit people would be
come covered in their efforts to move
from place to place.
Haywood county has just passed
through a very severe winter -the
worst since 1 89t.
According to records of the weath
er bureau which have been compiled
here since lHOfi, the average temper?
ature over a thirty-one year period
was 54.2 degrees. During the same
period the average date of the last
killing frost was April 2,rth, while
the average date of the first killing
frost was on October 12.
The latest date recorded for a kill
ing frost was May 20th; the earliest

les than one one-hundredths fell.
The average annual precipitation
was 45.95 inches. The driest year
was 1904 with 26.R6 inches of rain,
but 1925 runs a close second with
The wettest year was 1901 with
59.84 inches, while 1920 took second
position with 57.35 inches.
The average annual snowfall for
this period was 12.5 inches.
The above scientific data, covering
the years from about 1890 to 1930,
will show that there has been no spe
cial time for heavier rains; that
none of the killing frosts were so
unusual. Other data taken from the
same source will show that there has
been no continuous years of low or
Any subsequent 5 years will average
approximately the annual average
over the entire period of recording,
Of course this data does not cover
the earlier years that many citizens
of Haywood county can recall. How
ever, it does indicate that the win
ters have been about the same aince
1896; that is on any five year aver
age.; And I am almost convinced that
the past winter could hold its own
with any of those in the early history
of this section of the state.
Nevertheless, since I am attempt
ing to prepare accurate history of
Haywood county, fact on the early
winters which will prove that they
were different from those of the pres
ent would be gtoreatly appreciated.
And in the meantime the atory will
continue by the old saying that "Win
ters are not like they used to be," and
it will be verr well carried on when I
tell boys and girls of that terrible
winter back when I was a boy in 1936.
