HOOTON. STATIONMA STEP'S PROMOTION.—Mr. William Edward Hughes, who for eight years has held the position of stationmaster at Hooton, has received the appointment of stationmaster at Hereford, and 1-it ja"t week to take up the duties at his new station. During his term of office at Hooton Mr. Hughes has made himself very deservedly popular with all classes of the community, and veiy general regret is felt that his promotion has necessitated his removal to another district. Though he is only about forty years of age, he has already seen 28 years' ser- vice with the Joint Companies, having commenced as a very youthful booking clerk at Neston Sta- tion, where his father was stationmaster. Four years later he filled a similar position at Frod- sham, and he afterwards served in the same capacity at Church Stretton. This was followed by a spell in the superintendent's office at Shrews- bury, and after several years of clerical work at other places, including Ludlow, where his father was now installed as stationmaster, he came back to Chester, and was later transferred to Tenbury. He next served as stationmaster at Easton Port, Berrington, Edge. and Moreton-on-thc-Lug, re- maining at the latter place three years. He afterwards had charge of Helsby, and was pro- moted to Hooton, one of the most trying stations on the companies' lines. During his sojourn her,, the widening of the l ire, which has added a num- ber of platforms to the station, has been accom- plished, and the Hooton Races have come into existence; but under Mr. Hughes's direction everything has run smoothly and without a hitch, and the difficulties only made more appar- ent. his fitness for further promotion. The sta- tion where he will now be located is the only one in the well-known town of Hereford, and in point of importance it ranks next to Chester and Shrewsbury He has altogether served as sta- tionmaster 16 years, but with the great advantage of youth still on his side and a large and varied experience behind him, he will probably con- tinue the climbing process. —————
