Peculiar sights are to' be seen
around thi depot waiting rooms dur-

morning. One individual who fre
(juently appears is the woma.i who
smokes a pipti. She generally lights
up ia the ladies' waitiug room much
to the annoyance of others sitting
about. It lir.ally becomes necessary
for tbe man in the tirket olli".e to re
quest her ti move into the gents de
partment n sue ilesires to continue
luhind the pipe. An old lady was
enjoying a smoko from an antiquated
pipe nt the depot this morning
-eated in the waiting room among
traveling men and others. The cur
ious man toll the agent that thai
wns a rather singular sight to him.
'Oh. that's nothing," replied the
aiTflnt, "almost every day tbe old
woman with th"? pi'pe is araony
the people who travel. It
has not been long since an old and
young lady, whom I afterward fouud
were graud-mother and grand-daughter,
pulled out their pi u s and en
joyed a smoke in the depot. The
young lady, I suppose, was about
nineteen, out sue smoked as uncon
cernedly as aman of 70."
