“MYSTERY SPECIAL” i
PROVIDES LOT OF FUN
Lone Exception Is Charlottesville
Man, Who Came Here for Trip,
Only to Return Home.
Net even the engineer knew where
he was to take his train when the
Southern Railway's ‘‘mystery special”
pulled out of Union Station at 9 o'clock
yesterday morning with more than 500
passengers aboard. And when he did
find cut—which was after he opened
his sealed orders as the train sped
southward fr m Alexandria—he kept it
pretty much to himself for three
suspense-filled hour's.
So it was that the trainload of holi
day-makers, who literally gambled for
a day of fun "somewhere,” were given
to advancing wild guesses as the "mys
tery special" raced across Southern
landscapes. Whither they w»ere b:und,
to seashore or mountain, they knew not,
and it was not until the train chugged
into a little station at Fry’s Springs,
near Charlottesville, Va., that the prob
lem was solved for them.
The extent to which the passengers
had been "kept in the dark” concern
ing their destination was indicated by
the varied attire cf members of the
party. Some wore hip boots and car
ried fishing poles; others took bathing
suits, and some were dressed In hiking
clothes. For all, however, It proved to |
be a day of fun—except, perhaps. f:r
one man. He went all the way from
Chariottesvil e to Washington to board <
. the "mystery special," cnly to be taken
right back home. j
Entertainment was furnished by an ■
orchestra and a Southern barbecue was
served at the amusement park.
