CASEY JONES No tale is this of the intrepid engineer whose deeds have bee immortalized in song. It is or Casey Jones, a railroad man, to be sure, but his activities lack the glamor of the other, being of routine, commonplace nature. Many would consider them wholly devoid of interest and popular ap- ,eal; but they are not so, simply because,this Casey Jones was un- willing they should be. He is a railroad crossing watch- man in Uniontown, and, during the eight years he l performea MER, Prop. LINCOLN, ILLINOIS the duties of that position, has made himself the town's "land- l mark." He is famous for the flow- er garden he maintains nearby, sharing its blossoms generously with the hospital in the town and with his many friends. Last Christ- mas he had to hire t truck to transport home the gifts bestowed upon him by people using his crossing--people of all ages and all waiks of life, who had throug the year known of his unfailing courtesy and kindness. But sup- pose we let the Uniontown, Pc., Morning Herald tell of him: "Most everyone knows Casey Jones of 8mitlield--urely you do. He's the old Casey fellow who's been watching the B&O crossing in East Fayette Street for so long his name is a household cOmmod- ity in the homes of high school students and other children aoun. He always has a cheery 'Hello' for every school kid, and the same for the older folks. One of the la things mothers tell students upon leaving home is: 'Be sure and see Cosey before crossing the railroad track!' It is interesting to stop and cha with Casey Jorres--to sit on the bench with him and hear him discuss the topics of the day. In the middle of some topic of in- terest, the first thing you know Casey ups and trots to the cross- ing and helps an old lady, or a mother and child. He doesn't wait for trains; he's a perpetual cross- PAGE ing wtchman. And all the stu- dents who know him and pas day by day sumly love the jovial old man." Casey Jones refused to allow physical misfortune to "down" him. Out of the very circum- stances over which many another would murmur, he has wrested the opportunity to serve, and, through doing so, to gain that richest of possessions--the ,esteem and affection of his fellows ...... i SMALL BOY HEROES Thermopolis, Wyo.---Into a scene of utter confusion and terror where an angry bull was pawing the ground, bellowing, stop cars and frightening nurse and everybody in general near the Hilltop Hospital, walked three small boys, the oldest not over eight years. Imitating toremlor$, they drove the wild bull home, to the immense relief of everybody concerned. i ! -- i A. F. LIPP INSURANCE OF ALL KINDS Fill. & Sift.AUg.
