y Interior Joirne Stanford. Kv., November 15,1895 W. P. WALTON. GOT LEFT. That's What our Editor did When ho Yen tured outside of Stanford. Cincinnati, Nov. 12. There's many h s'Jp 'tixt the cup And the lip, dear reader, and may I ask if yon ever got left. I do not mean politically for moat of you did on the fateful first Tueadny lu November, nor in love affairs for that la a matter of course, but by a train and an ordinary, every day train at that. If you have you can possibly recall that hope lesancss, that disgust and despair, which are indescribable, but which once felt can never bo forgotten. You see the train pull out and run to catch it only to see the gap between you and it grow and widen. At last you give np the unequal race only to be langhed Rt by the gaping depot crowd, and out of breath you feel inadequate to the duty of cursing the railroad company as deeply and as dirt fully as you think it deserves and too mad to pay a hoy to kick you as you really deserve for leaving the car. It is a moment of supremest agony which intensifies the more you realize how utter ly helpless you are to help yourself. These preliminary observations are nrefatorv to a recital ol my own tale of woo and will explain why I am in Cin cinnati now instead of Chattanooga. To make a long story short. I got left and experienced all the conflicting emotions I have attempted to describe above end more besides. It was like this. 1 bad btarted with Mrs. W. and another Pearl of great price to the Atlanta exposition and after eomo trials and a few tribulations had gotten aifar as Somerset. Five minutes for refreshments was called out and seeing some fruit temptingly displayed across the etreet, I stepped aver to get some. I sot it but alas! Excuse these tears. The train had stopped less than three minutes and had gone on its courso with my charges unmindful of the desolation it -was creating in my bosom. I rushed to the telegraph office, explained the situa tion and promised to follow on next train. But there was no next train South for 12 hours. Ashamed to go up town and hoping by travel to drive dit appointment and care away, besides punishing the railroad company, I boarded the first train North and here I am in Ohio, awaiting the next trdu at 0:15 to my charges in Tenneeoee. This o'er trno story may bo and doubt-lass is uninteresting, but if in telling it I miy point a moral and adorn a tal, I shall in Bomo degree be repaid for my troubles. Railroad trains, like time and tide, wait for no man, tbat Is to say no man id my standing with them, and nei ther death nor taxes is more certain than that they will leave you if they get a half chance. I hayo another object in writing this and that is to say that people in our section are practically cut off from going to the exposition. To go by Knox villa yon are out two nights and a day and if by Chattanooga you have to take pot luck. No through train for the South stops in thi$ section except the one at midnight which can be at June tion City and there is no connection to that under 12 hours. The train we started on goes no further than Chattanooga and takes a moderate eternity to do that. The exposition may bo worth all this time and annoyance to see, but of that lean speak more dfiaitely in my noxt, if I live long enough to get there. What tho Cincinnati Southern lacks in its servico to way passengerd, it niBkfs up to the through, however. "Tno Ex. paction Flyers" are solidly trains of magnificent and Mann palaces, which glido over the well ballasted stoel rtil like greased lightning in speed and like flowery beds in ease and comfort. These trains only stop at Lexington, Somerset and Oakdalo in their journey from Cincinnati to Chattanooga and unke the!330 miles in about 10 hours and Atlanta in some four more. Clover EdJSberman, master of trains, did his best to consolo mo in my misfortunes and by sundry highly appreciated favors laid me under additional obligations. We are also indebted to Gapt. W. N. Tunoy, a capital conductor, for kind attentions. If a bad beginning make a good ending, I am dead in it, and bore's hoping that if all in not well, It will end well. But whether it does or not, I shall D. V. tell about in next issue, notliirn extenuating nor sotting down aught savo unvarnished facta. W. P. W. NEWSY NOTES.
