Passenger Traffic Heavy
The summer visitors are coming and going in droves now. Every day trains are crowded and many of the through trains are carrying extra coaches. The trains which make local stops seem to never have room enough for the crowds and for the past two weeks there has been no sign of a let up.
Coaches for Circus Crowd
Eleven extra cars were taken out on the Clinch yesterday and will be used today to haul passengers who want to come to this city on the circus excursion. The railroad people expect to see the train crowded.
[It's difficult for our generation to realize the essential role played by passenger trains before automobiles became commonplace.]
