FIFTY YEARS IN THE CAB "Billy" Doolittle's Fine Record as an Engine Driver. VETERAN OF THROTTLE PULL Lifetime Spent on n Ijocomotlre, Ml lb Only One Serious Acci dent nml No ninck Marie Aarnlust lllni. BIOUX FALLS, 8. D., March 22. In the employ of railroads since ho was 14 years of age, and forty years in an engine cab for one line of railroad Is tho record which has been made by AVllllam T. Doollttle, a veteran engineer of Sioux Falls. 'In uddltlon to hold lap the throttle on a locomotive on tho Chicago, 8L Paul. Minneapolis & Omaha railroad for the period of forty years, he also found time to servo as a member of tho city council, as mayor of Sioux Falls und as a member of tho waterworks com mltslon which Installed the present municipal waterworks system in Sioux Falls. Hilly" Doollttle. as he Is known to thousands, was born at Lowdenvllle. O.. uul had barely reached his fourteenth yea- when he began a three-year's ap prenticeship In the shops of the rennsyl vault Central railroad. At 19 he was running a locomotive for that system. Many thouionds of miles of rails had bjiuh under his cab before he was 25, when he married and came west. First Trnln Ofer TrnoUs. In the northwest at that early day h found a pioneer country with few railroads nosing their way among small towns widely scattered among virgin hllU, valleys and prairie. In his cab on the front of a Chicago, St. Paul, Minne apolis fc Omaha train on March 16, 1873. K- helped lead the way Into a new vmntry. His first run was between St .'antes. Minn., and Sioux City. Ia.. and hW home at that time was In Sioux City Five years later, when the Omaha built west from WoUIilngtnn. Minn., he re vived orders to take out another train. It was the first paiansrr train to rpn Into Sioux Falls, at that time an outpost of clylHzatlpn containing a small num ber of modest but enthusiastic citizens There was Joy In the new town on tho banks of the Big Sioux river the night that the first passenger train arrived with "Billy" Doollttle at tho throttle. Then for a couple of years he returned to the St. James-Bloux City division, but finally was persuaded to come back to the Worthlngton-Sloux Falls run. Since 1SS0 ho has pulled the throttle on locomo tives that have hauled tens of thou sands of people In and out of Sioux Falls, and In his work he has worn out many a strong steam horse that could not stand the wear and tear of the years as well as he. One Close Call. During his forty years' experience as an engineer he had only one serious ac cident and one near accident, which In Itself Is n remarkable record. Tho near accident brought him tho commendation and thanks of a tralnload of people for his quick action and steady nerves. That was on a rainy night when a bridge- was swept away ten feet In front of his locomotive on a run through tho Floyd creek valley, between LcMars and Sioux City, la. Itunnlng slowly and leaning out of his cab window to get what view he could In the darkness ahead, a lightning flash suddenly revealed a haystack. The hay stack was a common enough thing tn Itself, but not to "Hilly" Doollttle, whon It appeared only a few feet ahead on his right-of-way. He snapped on the brakes and brought his train to a standstill orily a few feet from the bank of the swollen and swift running creek, now assuming all the proportions of a great river Dismounting from his cab he Investi gated and found that the railroad bridge had been carried away by the flood. The hay stack on the right-of-way was float ing on the surface of the river and had momentarily lodged against one of the bridge piers. Passengers on the train which was thus miraculously saved from plunging Into the swollen waters were loud in their protestations of thanks to the engineer. Hut "Billy" was thankful for the good will of Another, who sent the lightning flash In time. The aocldent which came near being fatal occurred during a blizzard on Feb ruary U, 190C. three miles west of Worth.- Monday's SILK Bargains Several Thousand Yards of the Season's Most Favored Weaves Offered to You at a Remarkable Saving --These Just as Samples 75o ALL SILK MESS ALINES at 39o SPECIAL !
