Drove to catch train.

Vain attempt of a traveler to get to Stratford.

A traveler for John MacDonald & Company tells of the amusing experience of a commercial man who wished to go to Stratford from Seaforth on Tuesday. Hearing that a train was stalled at Dublin, he hired a cutter and drove to that place. To his great joy he found the train still at that station, and he patted himself on the back for his own resourcefulness and foresight, as he mounted the steps and took one of the many vacant seats in the fold, cheerless car. He waited, eighteen hours for the train to move out of that spot, and finally went back with it to Seaforth. This is only one of many such experiences reported.
