The fallowing special from Clayton
"will be of interest to the many ac
quaintances of Conductor Hough who
is at the hospital here:
CLAYTON, 111., Feb. 4.—George R.
Hough, for fifty-two years an employe
of the Wabash railroad and the old
est conductor on the system, suffered
a stroke of paralysis at Keokuk, Iowa,
yesterday afternoon, Just as he was
preparing to come to Bluffs on his
regular run. He was stricken at
the Wabash station and for a time
his condition was regarded as very
critical. He was removed to a lioo
pital in Keokuk and last evening woiJ
received in this city by his relatives
Is to the effect that he is rest'ng
Because of his advanced ago—Mr.
Hough will celebrate his 74th birth
day anniversary on March 19, if lie
lives—fears for the worst are enter
tained. Relatives left last evaiiug
for Keokuk to be in attendance at
Mr. Hough has gained the distinc
tion of being the oldest conductor on
the pay roll of the Wabash syst-rn.
Although having acquired the age
when he was entitled to the Wabaiii'^
pension, and although he laid away
during his younger years ample means
to provide life's necessities in his de
clining years, his love for the worn
prevailed over the desires of his fam
ily and he has held his run, in winter
and summer, with the regularity of
a man fifty years his junior.
Mr. Hough commenced his exp»i
ence as a railroader on the old New
York and Hartford railway away hack
in the 50's under a master mechan'c
by the name of Simons. Simons was
afterwards made master mechanic of
the Wabash railway with headquan
ters in Springfield and sent back to
New York for Mr. Hough and three
other young men who had worked

under him on '.he Hart'ord and New
Haven railroad. Mr. Hough arrived in
Springfield on April 15, 1857, and he
says that if there had been a train
going east that same day he certainly
would not have stayed in Springfield.
There were no paved streets and the
streaks of mud which took the place
of streets were knee deep from one
end to the other. Mr. Simons, how
ever, induced him to stay, and he
went to work on the Wabash, where
he has been ever since. •?.
He Got Married.
Before he was in Springfield very
long, he had another attachment more
binding than his service to the Wa
bash railway, as it appears he immed
iately set his cap for one of Spring
field's best young ladles and he was
married to Miss Georgia Ann Pringle
just one year from the time he reach
ed Springfield. He afterward was
elected alderman of Springfield.
Mr. and Mrs. Hough had seven
children, all of whom are now living.
There are four sons and three daugh
ters. The four sons are all now in
the railroad business and John E.
Hough, the oldest, is assistant train
master of the Chicago, Rock Island
& Pacific railway in Nebraska. Charles

After a woman has tried half a dozen different remedies for a cold and received little if
any benefit, she appreciates the quick relief which Chamberlain's Cough Remedy affords! This
remedy acts on nature's plan, loosens the cough, relieves the lungs, aids expectoration and opens
the secretions, effecting a permanent cure. It is not a palliative that merely allays the cough or
depresses the action of the heart, but a cure that strikes at the root of the trouble and removes
the cause. »It contains no opium or other narcotic, and may be given to children with implicit
