delta air lines

MANY-MANY STORIES I COULD TELL ABOUT THIS.  ONE THAT HAS ALWAYS STAYED IN MY MEMORIES IS THE BAD ACCIDENT BY THE RAILROAD 2 MILES EAST OF AURORA.
THE CHICAGO-GREAT WESTERN R.R. CUT RIGHT THROUGH HIS FARM.  ONE SAT. NIGHT THE WHOLE HERD OF COWS AND ONE BULL GOT OUT AND ONTO THE TRACKS.
IT KILLED 13 COWS AND THE BULL GOT CAUGHT ON THE COW CATCHER AND WAS DISMEMBERD ALL THE WAY TO AURORA WITH PARTS OF HIM STILL ON THE TRAINS COW CATCHER.  HIS LIFE SAVINGS WAS INVESTED IN THIS HERD.  HE GOT SOME COMPESATION BUT NOT FULL VALUE OF HIS LOSS.
WWII WAS AT ITS PEAK AND MANY A TROOP TRAIN PASSED ON ITS WAY TO CHICAGO.
I AM PROUD  THIS PERIOD OF TIME  WHEN THINGS WERE TOUGH BUT HISTORY WAS MADE.
