Flood waters couldn’t stop the mail, reported the July 22, 1915 Skidmore New Era:
Brought Mail From Quitman
Skidmore has been without mail for the past week, the trains being unable to get here on account of the washouts. Tuesday afternoon, Wm. Devers and Jerome Cross accompanied by Ed. King drove to Quitman and brought down 40 sacks of mail, most all of which was newspapers and magazines. The post office lobby was crowded from 6 o’clock until 9 o’clock, people anxiously waiting to get something to read, even if it was a little old.
On Wednesday morning, Mr. Cross went down to Maitland and brought up seven sacks more.
