Title A Certain Week End in 1895
Description "A TRIP TO EPHRAIM" "I left Mt. Pleasant at about 6:41 and arrived in Ephraim at about seven o'clock on Saturday night. I went to see my cousins, Miss R.D. and Miss M.D. who were at the depot to meet me. I stayed at their home that night, then the next morning was Sunday so we went to Sunday School. Then after Sunday School we went down to Miss R and M's house and had lunch. Then we all went to our other aunt's house and played on the lawn until dark when we had ice cream and enjoyed ourselves playing more games. We had a very nice time and went to Miss R and M's and retired for the night. The next morning, Monday, a lot of boys and girls among whom was myself, decided to go into the field for haws. We started at about nine o'clock and reached the lovely meadow at about 10:30. We were all very tired from our walk. It was a large meadow in one corner of which was an old long house, but nobody lived in it. There were also two flowing wells, so we drank all the water we cared for. In the south-west corner of the meadow was a large haw grove. We went down to the grove and when we reached there it was about 11 o'clock. We spent the rest of our time until noon hunting for a place to eat our lunch. We finally found a suitable place and when we had finished our lunch we all went out and played games for about an hour and a half, such as hiding seek (sic) and so on. Then we all went out and picked haws. We filled our baskets and put them in the log cabin. We then went to our uncle's corn patch and got all of the corn we could carry. When we came back there were two buggies waiting (sic) for us. So we put the corn and the haws in the buggies, climbed in and rolled away to town. When we reached there we were all so tired that we retired early to our beds for the night. The next day I bade farewell to my relatives and friends after such a good time. Miss R.D. and Miss M.D. accompanied me to the depot from where I left Ephraim on the cars and returned to my home." Can you hear it, the thunder of the Crain wheels and see the black smoke pouring from the funnel of the steam train on the narrow gauge D&RG Railway? Can you envision it grinding to a stop and stand panting at the station while a young, blue-eyed girl throws her arms around her cousins, "Miss R.D. 6
