t A GOOD PICKER
A glance at the list of names of
those appointed by R. M Riddick,
chairman of the Perquimans County
Hospitality Committee to serve with
him on the committee is sufficient to
prove that Mr. Riddick knows how to
Good work, Mr. Riddick.
A DREAM FULFILLED
The story of Charles R. Bush, who
retires to his Perquimans County
farm after half a century of rail
roading, emerging, so to speak, from
the strenuousness, the state of phy
sical and mental tension, which a job
like his involvles, into the tranquility
of Perquimans County farm life, as
Mr. Bush will live it, is intriguing.
It is a dream fulfilled, and not
every one realizes his dream of a life
time as Charlie bush is doing, at the
age of 70.
How many have lived the average
life-time and passed from the scene
since Charlie hush first saw the light
of day in the farm home of his par
ents, just over the line from Perqui
mans, in Chowan County! How many
have lived the average life-time and
passed from the scene since he took
up his career of railroading, fifty
Consider the story of Charlie Bush.
He had u.,itition. He must have had
a lot cf arnuiiiiii;, as v.-e'.l as a lot of
stajil ty. Within five years from the
tir.e he began his work on the rail
road as a lad of 19, he was driving
one of the fastest locomotives of one
of the greatest of our railroad sys
tems. And he stayed right on this
run. Year in and year out. That is
one of the most interesting phases of
the story, that and the fact that he r
was always climbing, always
vancing. For never once did he have'
a major accident, never was a life
lost on the train behind his locomo
tive, laying with his family in the City
of Washington, week in and week
out he made his regular runs, what
ever the number required, regularly
over the same road.
lie accumulated property, educated
his children, laid by something for
the rainy day, steadily driving hia
locomotive, back and forth, beck and
forth, between New York and Wash
fib must have loved his work, or
he could not, have done the "job so
welL but always, in the back of his
mind, was the ever-growing purpose
some day to go back to the farm.
What dreams he had of the joy, the
peace, the tranquility, when this
should come to pass, as the swiftly
whirling wheels of his locomotive
covered the distance, covered three
million miles! ,
Here's to you, Mr. Bush. YouVe
done something to be proud of.
