And in doing work now underway, a few relics of bygone days have turned Up, G. C. Schobee, local agent, says, In the Work of tearing out the old, rotted foundations of the depot, putting in new foundations, and preparing to raise iho depot and .put new asbestos shingles on the roof and siding on the walls, old time tables and pictures of early days have been uncovered. , • ... One of them was a sort of "what not , containing the picture of a child of about" two years of age. The "what not" had a place for pipes and pins, needles and a few other thirtgs, so perhaps "what not" is the correct name. } ; , At any rate, Mr. Scobee. would like to know who the Child is, so if there are a few Old timers around, vintage of 1880 or 1890, they might stop by the depot and take .a look. An old time.table, 1887, Was also uncovered. At that time, there were two passenger and four freight trains a day, each way. Today there are only two freights and one passenger * train each way. . Old ticket stubs, 1893, also proved interesting. Scobee found in comparing prices that passenger fares were practically the same back in 1893 as they are today, with today's tax added.
