in a and fort by which m. Shupp Forty-Five Yean Of Service A year if a loaf time, they WY. Forty-five years mutt b« a rery lony time, at least. That's how long Jeew Booth, mail carrier at the General Machinery corporation, who will retire tonight, hai been in .the employ of the company and ita predecessor,--the Nile* Tool Works. · "I'm going to spend 'th» few years I have left among my wife and children," Mr. Booth, who it 78 years old, said Thursday. -"He and Mrs. Booth celebrated their golden wedding anniversary two years ago November 13 at their home in Seven Mil*. They lived in Hamilton following their marriage until 15 years ago, when they moved to Seven Mile. They didn't nail Mr. Booth "Old Faithful" for nothing. He made his rounds as regularly as the liande of a clock, a clock that (ticks to.its task of getting there at the right time. And when he goes home tonight, never to return to the- scenes of a lifetime of work, perhaps) unless it is to' visit some of the men he'worked beside and grew to know so well through the years, he will take with him a touching and useful reminder of the affection of his fellow-workers. The reminder U the gift of a beautiful Morris reclining chair, an ottoman, and a cabinet smoking stand. And after the first touching moment^ of his surprise at the esteem of hie friends had given him, Mr. Booth expressed his intention to spend his time from now on in just the way 'the gifts, indicated. The "gift was given in expression of pleasant associations over past years by co-workers in offices and shops of the General Machin- KB. AND KB8. BOOTH cry corporation," according to fellow-workers. If Mr. Booth had been doing with methodical exactnem, h* might have retired on November 18 instead of today, as it was November 18, 1890,. that he first began working at the Nilei Tool Works. And he's been the messenger for the company for the 40 years, first making his ics and trips about the business district of Hamilton in a horse wagon that became a familiar almost an institution, to his fellow workers and other. Hamiltonians. Elephant and rhinoceros inhabit the low-lying district* of Ethiopia, especially the Sobat valley.
