It is Mr. Castleman and his buddies needing some supplies and to get any mail for the last time. They are heading back to Virginia by train early in the day. Dutifully, Henry obliges, but distrusts this man - after all one of his cooks had disappeared a few days before and another the year before. Hence, Henry demands to be payed in cash, which is not normal Deyett protocol. Mr. Castleman pays by the stylish way of obtaining the money from the band around his hat. Henry 's early morning sleep, if he was getting any, was further disturbed by a fire the same morning, while still dark. The Mitchell-Macdonald lumber mill, that stood about 1⁄4 km west of the railway tracks, was razed.

The first recorded fatality at the CNR crossing by Deyett 's. John Pappila, a local and well known in the small Foley Finnish community hadn 't heard the train and the train operators didn 't see him for the overgrown trees covering the crossing. On hitting his car, Mr. Pappila was thrown out of his car and killed on impact on some of the many rocks. The jury for the accident prudently recommended the removing of the trees and installing stop signs. Actual traffic lights at the railway crossing were not erected till the end of 1958.
