1872: Railroad fireman saves child from death

The Chronicle-Express: Consolidation, January 1, 1926, of the Yates County Chronicle (1824) and the Penn Yan Express (1866); the Rushville Chronicle (1905) and the Gorham New Age (1902) The Yates County History Center’s volunteers have gleaned these entries for your enjoyment from their digitized newspapers.

The fireman, Mr. John Keef, seeing the train could not be stopped, rushed forward to the pilot of the engine, and holding himself with one hand, with the other brushed the child so far from the rail as to escape all injury. The child, being too small to step over the rail, had got down on its hands and feet to crawl over to escape from the danger it had foreseen, just as the fireman brushed it from the track. The train finally stopped and the child was restored to its mother, who came running through the fields to receive her missing but loving child. The act was a brave and meritorious one, and both the engineer and firemen received the blessings of the mother as well as the hearty commendations of the passengers on the train. ~ Elmira Advertiser Plutarch observers of Solon — “But it is not enough for a man in office to be disinterested and upright himself; all that surround him ought to be so too. The faults of those under him are charged to his account. It is his business, and one of the principal designs of his being put in such a trust, is to prevent those corruptions and abuses.” — Conciliation is the word that bespeaks the key-note of this Presidential canvass. It is that which takes the deepest hold of the people. It is that which appeals to their best feelings. It is long enough that we have warred and stirred up passion and hate. If we are to have a free and self-governing republic, the sooner we study the things that make for peace the better for all the days that are to come.
