THEY FORGOT THE BABY.
One evening in the summer of 1850, as the train west was leaving
Barton Station, on the Susquehanna Division, Conductor C. L. Robinson
saw a man and a woman, who had left the train at Barton, running
wildly after the train. They yelled:
"Stop! stop! for God's sake! We've forgotten our baby!"
The conductor pulled the bell-cord and the train stopped. The
man rushed into one of the cars, and there, sure enough, on one
of the seats lay a chubby baby, all unconscious of the fact that
its parents had left the car and forgotten it.
