On our way to , o u r new hom e w e w e re obliged to pass huge piles of boards, being used in constructing th e new E rie R a ilroad, a t w h a t w a s th e n known as th e “U p ­ p e r L a n d ing,’’ w h ich was about 100 yards east of th e tall pines as seen from th e fro n t of -Mr. F red Schw a b ’s house. I shall not soon forget how near I came to having my limbs crushed between the piles of boards and th e household goods on w h ich I was riding. Daniel C a rm ichael had th e con­ tra c t fo r building th e Erie, both east an d w e st of Shohola stream , I have a very distinct recollection of having seen the broken stones fly high into th e air w h e n a b last w a s discharged on th e rocks east of Shohola and a t tim e s th e windows of th e B a rryville school house would shake and clat- Jo h n Nelson, living a t Barryville, had th e job of felling the large trees opposite our hom e, m any of w h ich, w e re used to prevent th e b a n k s from sliding into th e Delaware.

The m en w e re from one of th e railroad con­ struction gangs. As soon as they reached the shore again they howled like demons. A fter w a iting a long tim e to m a k e up our m inds to go to our hom e, we finally decided to leave as silently as possible, letting o u r b o a t d r if t down th e river tow a rd hom e, b u t a t th a t in s tan t M iddaugh was h i t on his hip by a stone from the intruders. On reaching honie M iddaugh pleaded and urged fath e r to go back w ith him and “fight i t out to a finish,” b u t fa th e r was inflexible to all Middaugh’s pleadings and urg- ings, and so th e “fight i t out” did not m aterialize. B rother George and I w e re re tu r n ­ ing from B arryville school one da:? and h a d th e good luck of riding to ­ w a rd our hom e on a wagon loaded w ith m aple scantlings— to be used for track s on w h ich cars w e re placed to fill th e g r e a t fill ju s t w e st of K ing’s and F u ller’s Cut, w h e n a stran g e r to me fell off th e load of scantling flat on h is back. The wagon was stopped, but not quite soon enough to keSp the rig h t hind wheel from passing betw e en h is knees, over his chest, slightly grazing his left ear. On be­ ing helped to stand on his feet again he w a s asked by the team s ter how h e felt afte r his fall! His reply was: “Its a h ------- of a m en t h a t c a n ’t s tand m o re th a n one load.” I kept som e­ w h a t inform e d of th e history of the stran g e r and I learned he died w ith­ in less th a n a y e a r from th e tim e of h is fall. The long stone culvert was not built fo r m a n y years for S h o h o la stream to pass through, b u t a tim b e r stru c tu re was erected in lieu of the culvert and for several years th e r e ­ afte r one H ipsm an was em p loyed by the E rie to have th e train s go slowly over the tim b e r structure.
