def get_last_word(word):
    last_word = word[0]
    for letter in word[1:]:
        if letter >= last_word[0]:
            last_word = letter + last_word
        else:
            last_word = last_word + letter
    return last_word

out_file = open('output.txt', 'w')

for word in open('A-small-practice (3).in', 'r'):
    if case_number != 0:
        out_file.write("Case #{}: ".format(case_number) + get_last_word(word))
    case_number += 1
