" He's Drunk. " The editor of the Hornclls
villc Journal, while on a " train" the other day
aays ho had a good laugh over tho following
anecdote told by a gentleman on board at the
expense of an old conductor on the ErieKond:
Several years ago, when Geo. Golf, " run the
Itoynl Mail Train, " between HornelUvillo and
Dunkirk, Smith was one day scaled in a
passenger coach of that train then stopping
lor a few minutes at Genesee station. An old
lady, leading a little child, entered ihocar, and
her wild excited look convinced him that this
was her first venture upon a railroad. Presently
the train started, and Geo. Golf, stepping into
tho car, in his usual prompt nnd business style,
said " Tickets. " The old lady kept her
eye oniGeorge, closely watching every move
ment. At length he stood beside her. " Tick
ets, madam," said the Conductor. "You
shan't have my ticket; '' said the old lady, con
vulsively clutching the piece of pasteboard. "I
must insist upon seeing your ticket, madam, "
was the polite but firm reply. The old lady
slipped one corner through her hand, which
George seized, nnd adroitly trnnsfered the
ticket into his posession examined it found
it was for Scio, three miles and ,1 half distant,
tore off one corner, as was the custom, plaoe
cd it in his pocket and passed on. The old
lady gazed after him in perfect astonishment
until he left tho car. " Grannv, " aid the little
child, "wlint did lip dp that for J" The reply
