Rain at Park Gives Engineer
a Busy Time.

When the rain began to fall at Fairmount park last night various people ran sundry ways to find whelter, but the engineer of the miniature railroad, remembering his duty, dashed through the downpour to the train shed, seized a horse blanket and covered the engine. He paid no attention to the fact that he himself was getting wet, but spent five minutes putting the blanket about the "choo-choo," taking care that the smokestack came through where the horse's head should have been that the tender, filled with coal, was in the dry, and that the blanket was firmly fastened around.

"I'm afraid the iron horse will rust," he said, as he came back into a shelter.
