Dropping things from local trains seems to be a habit lately. The other day, a well known citizen of Perry County was on the Lotts Creek train. Suddenly, the bell cord was jerked and the train came to an instant and noisy halt. Conductor George Hart rushed back to the coach, asking in angry tones who had stopped the train.
Our friend mumbled something which the conductor finally understood to mean that he had lost his false teeth from the train and they were a few yards back on the track. The teeth were recovered.
Then there was the plight of another well known citizen yesterday. He and his wife were on the way out and just before the train reached Hazard, this gentleman lost his keys from the train. He alighted at the next station and went back after the keys. When he reached Hazard, train and wife had gone on north. His Hazard friends say that he dropped the keys on purpose as he seemed to enjoy his visit here that night. 1928
