The shippers duplicated the missing box, which contained seasonable dry goods worth $350.00, and filed claim for their loss. which was paid. About four nionths later a shipment of household goods which had becn stored at the station in question was talten from storage and the box of dry goods discovered. The I~ouseholtl goods mere in the warehouse when t.he dry goods arrived, and had been removed from the premises and placed in other storage soon after. The box of dry goods was removed with the household goods, and the agent in whose care it. was, could not say how it came about. There could be no reason except failure to properly check the hot~sehold goods out of warehonse. The Cowpany has the box arid will sell it for whatever it will bring.

12 -"- 10 THE FRISCO-MAN - A. is properly dated and correctly made out. Xore than a year ago, in his address before the National Hay Association, on July.16, 1912, Chairman Prouty of the Interstate Commerce Commission said : "No man can foretell whether in the years to come it will be or it will not be necessary to allow some increases in the transportation charges of our railroads. If that time comes, it will be rl~e duty of the Commission to permit that advance. It will not only be - its duty as an act of justice, but it would be its duty to you In the highest conservation of your interests." While the Commission hesitates to perform an obvious duty, American railway credit is discredited in the money markets of the world. The necessity for an advance in freight rates which was urgent in 1910 is still more presslng today. The railway can know no genuine relief whilc operating expenses and taxes ahsorl) over '73% of tilcir revenue derived from carrying freight and passengers at unrelnunr,ratire rates. Chance=Takers.

14 12 THE FRISCO-MAN Harry Hop An article entitled, "Harry, Hop the Train," written by ddward L. Tinker, Safety Supervisor, El Paso and Southwestern Railroad, has been published in booklet form, attractively illustrated, by the Safety Bureau of the St. Louis and San Francisco Railroad, lor distribution among employes. In brief, the article deals with a little newsboy, Harry Hopper, who lost a leg in an attempt to hop a train. The child was the son of a former railroad man, who, while kicking in a coupling, had his foot so badly mashed that amputation was necessary. Being unable to continue in railroad service Harry's father purchased a news stand and sold papers for a living, the boy assisting him by taking papers out to sell. Harry took up his stand near a railroad station, and while there selling his papers had often noticed switchmen and brakemen jump trains when they were going fast, ride a may, and then swing off. After a short while Harry got into the habit of playing wound freight trains and later as they went slowly by would jump on the step, ride a little may, and then jump off. When warned of the danger of this pernicious habit, Harry would reply, '*l've been hopping these trains for a r~)onth and never got hurt, so 1 guess nothing can happen to me." One day, Itowever, as Harry made a junlp to the step of a box car, his foot slipped and he hung dangling by his hands. liis strength gave out, his hands gradually loosened their grip and he fell to the ground. One poor little leg struck across the rail and the heavy stpel wheels passed over it. rl'i~o~~qh H:lrry s(.l'(?nlll~d ill :lfrolly, The Train no one heard, until after some time the conductor on the rear platform looked out and saw a huddled heap beside the track. The train wn, stopped immediately and the crew ran down to where the boy was lying, almost dead. Together they picked Harry up, carried him to the station and later conveyed him in ambulance to the hospital. He was laid upon the operating table and the doctors cut away his trousers and shoes and then with a sharp saw cut off his poor little leg just above the knee. Harry awoke from the effects of the chloroform in great pain. He lay In bed for weeks and weeks and during this time his father would hobble out to see him with his mother and little sister. Of course they all felt badly and his mother would cry because she knew her little boy wonld be a cripple for life and would never be able to play around like other boys, or ride a bicycle and skate and run and juml) and play baseball. He gradually grew better and when he was able to leave the hospital the trained nurse who had been vcry good to him, bongi~t him a little pair of crulches. Harry then went to the country lo stay with his grandfather until hc fully recovered from his dreadful accident. While there he matched the children at play, particularly the boys enjoying n splnsh in the old swimming hole. He sat on the bank and sighed, and, tl~ough he did not tell anyone, his little heart was nearly breaking as he realized that nerer again could he join the boys in the saimmin~ pool.

15 THE FRISCO-MAN sell', "It ivould be fca~,ful to 11;lve any or the other litlle boys or girls lose :I leg as I did. If they only li~~e\\l IIOW 1n11c11 it hurt and Ilow hart1 it is not to play around like other children, they would never go near a Creight train." Harry later returned to the city and began selling papers Cor his father again. As he thought over his ~nisfortuue, an idea came to hiin. Going 1111 lo llie gen~ral oflices 11e saw a ma11 silting at a desk. "Arc yon the Inan at the head of tliis railroad," lie asked. "No, I am oniy the superintendcnl..,\~lything 1 can do for J~OII?" Ilarry then related to the sul~erinlentlcnt Ilow he had lost a leg and said, "I don't want to have any other little boys or girls to have the same thing happen to them that I had. If you can fix it I'd like to go to a!l the schools and talk to the cl~ildren." The superintendent assured Harry that it would be all right, so he started out on his journey and went through many cities. 111 each place he talked to the little boys and girls, explaining to them if they would always remember the seven "Nevers" they \irould ]lot get hult by railroad lrains ar~tl lose a as Ile had. Harry Hop the Train's Seven Nevers. 1. Nevcr cross the tracks by night or by day, \Vill~out stopping to listen :III~ look rach nwy. 2.

SI~PITP~ has just re- cenlly inaugurated a plan to have ~neetings of his section foremen as often as possible to cuable the men to get together and exchange ideas and to give th~m opportunity to be- come better accluai~ited. The meet,ing at Fort S~nilh, Ark., October 8, at which fifteen foremen were present, was a decided success in every way.

The chairman of the Central Safety Committee states that he found unabated interest being taken in the work of accident prevention, the spirit of which had been greatly stimulated by the fine results secured during the fiscal year ended June 30th. 1913; that interest is steadily and constantly spreading as time goes by to n greater 11um1)er of employes is made ~nnnifest by the corlstimtly increasing ratio of reduction in the casualty list, compared with any similar preceding period of time, The chairman of the Central Safety Committee states that one of the inost jnl~restins Yentnrcs of these meetings itrr? the essays or Iutpers rcwd I)!. somv one or more of the mcnlbers of the uo~nrnietee ou some aspect of the si~fcl y subject, :~nd w11ic.h yrovc3 by ;~rgt~~~~ent a11t1 ill~~stratio~~ the i~nportal1c:c of i~~tlivitlual effort for the grwr- est degree of success in accident preven tion.

20 THE PRISCO-MAN Safety First I)I1. J..I. l'oia'l'%- Safety ('ot!ltn1tlremfi11. Subject: How Can Greater Co-Operation in Accident l'revrntion IIiork IK Secured Among the Employes of the Division? l('ron1 the great book of Wisdom ulcl from the lips of Christ we have Lhe injunction. "Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven; hide not your candle under a bushel." In other words, if the object of your labors be good and your motive pure, let in the light, let the world know what you are trying to do and you may depend upon it that you can secure the co-operation of enough good men to make this work, whatever it may be, successful. This has been most thoroughly demonstrated in the Safety First movement. This great movement, and it is unquestionably the greatest movement for good that has ever been inaugurated in this country by any great company or organization, was at first opposed and regarded with no small degree of suspicion by the men and this feeling to a lesser degree still pertains in some sections. It is, however, slowly but surely disappearing as the men come to understand it better, which brings us back to the point at which we started. If me are to make a success of this movement the Inen in every tlepartment, from the highest official to the most humble section hand, must understand it thoroughly; those who do not know must be taught. It is not enough to have Safety First meetings by members of the Committee, the different railroad organizations should take it up. There are many different ways which could be tlloaght out which would cause them to talk Safety First topics at their meetings. The great body of section men, and brldge men should be educated to t.he value, to them, of this movement and this education should be done by means of open meetings which every one is urged to attend. The movement should by no means stop at the prevention of injury, but. should also take up the l~rerention of disease. The men should be taught how to keep well. An attempt. to do this would greatly increase the confidence of employes generally in Safety First for it would tend to prove to them that it was their welfare that xas being looked after. -4 close study of the cause of injury and siclcness both in and out of the railroad service will develop the fact that by far the greater part of both are caused Prom two things: first, ignorance; second, carele%sness ; both these can be entirely overcome. It is only necessary to educate the employes to the dmger of certain procedures and customs and, what is equally important, to the willingness on the, part of the company Lo malte mch customs unnecessary and :~t once accidents will begin to diminisl~. The officials sllould devote every possible energy to making the men in every departmei~t understand that there is no hot air in this movement, that it is a sincere and earnest effort to better conditions and that if conditions are to be better it nlrlst be

31 -..- THE FRISCO-MAN railroads fluctuate in value just as the thermometer goes up or down. They cost for. construction, but their value exists chiefly in the summer time. Note this variation from all the above. The cost of a railroad between two great cities is less if it can make LL bec-linc or avoid tunnels; hut the icss it costs and thc shorter thc dist~incc it runs, the greater is its value. These illustrations give an idea of what a taslc is "intangible" vtlluation. Wh% shall decide whcthcr Iowa milroads have gone clown in value and how much by the drcline in gopu1:rtion In thc last decadc? ;\Tichigirn railroads wcre stated by Michigan ofticials to have $35,814,043 worth of this foggy something belonging' to them in 1900; but Wisconsin on thc other hand cre'dits no intangible value at all to its railroads. The Statc of Washington credited the xorthern Pacific with 1 per cent intangible value abovc cost of reproduction of the railroad, but h'cw Jcrscy adds 20 pcr cent or $75,841,600 and then deducts 20 per cent for depreciation (which is an absolutely unhaltablc process) and so there you are; the value of New Jersey railronds is just what it cost to bring them into existence. Minnesota sees no "intangible" valucs; neither did Massachusetts when it was trying to get at the value of the New Haven road. Xow let us see how the con~plications multiply beyona all thc abovc. 'I'i~c value at which a railruad shoulcl be marked if in tho 1n:~rkct for purchase is its earning powcr; just as the value of a horse lies in wl~;rt it can rum and not in the direction it may Dr headed.

'I'hc pritsilvg:'c of ~mshing over tl~is strategic stretch is figure3 away up in the millions. Piling a littlc more on the problem: The depreciation cluestion has the railroads themselves in doubt, and how can a remote commission dccide this for 40 per cent of all thc railroad trackage of the world? Some railroads wear out quicker than others. Ties are always decaying. Kansas ties are only valucd at 56 per cent of their cost. The Tar-South tie in its moisturc will not live as long as tl~c Arizona tic in its dryncss, but on thc othcr hand. Southern trnciis will not havc to be constantly moved or liflctl to keep uy with encroaching sands. Kvery mortal drvicc grows old; some things on a railroad age out and some wenr out, but when, thcy are uut thcy arc out and unless replaced there is no railroad. Depreciation must cverlastingly be emphasized, for it is the one factor that is always activc; and elticiencs consists in supplying material for it to gnaw away, but whether it is 20 per cent or 10 per cent or 5 per cent it is only possible to tcl1 after replacement; for onc ycals may wear hard and another lightly; for instance, the Baltimore and Ohio had $4,000,000 worth of equipment loss in thc ffoods of last spring.

33 -- THE FRISCO-MAN - 31 I Women's Department MRS. E. 0. ArEIVLAND. \'e have i~ book writtell by T. S. Arthur, entitled, "What Can IVoman Ijo?" It is the story of the influence of two women from babyhood to grarlcl~notlierl~ood, onc for good, tile other for cvil. Both were wives ant1 ~notliers. Onc was the means of 1)renlting up her home, thc other saved h(~r husband from ruin. In history me find recordcd tlic Iremc?ndous iiilluenoe of \vonlun in 11:~tiollal affairs, as well as in the home. The Iialnes of Elizabeth, Jo:~n of Arc, Nancy J-Ianlis Jhcoln and many others are I~ousehold words, as are Cleopatra, Bloody Mary and Lucretia Borgia. Many of our great men have attributed their success to some woman and some have said, "All I am I owe to my mother," wife or sister. Too many women do not realize their possibilities. No matter ho~v hctljietl about yow life may be, there is ;~l\v:~ys so~nctliing you can do and if you do one thing well, it is betle~' than to so scatter your energies that lhry do not amount to anytliiiig anywhere. Jf y r ~ have children, you have n life-work. If you never do anything else, you can educate the children as far as you are able, and instill in their minds while they are young, the desire to be and do something worth while. You can begin their education while they are still clinging to your dress, with the beautiful stories which 1 I Auxusta, Kansas, Editor have bee~~ llalidecl down to us and of which the chilclrcn never tire. You can educate them in right living by keeping the atmosphere of the home pure and cleaii. I)o you know that everyone has an atmosphere'? I have met people wl~ose very presence breathed wliolesonlc s\veetness and \vho seemed like the "shadow of a rock in. a. weary land." There was a mngic something in the personality that soot.hed the turbulent spirit ant1 restctl the tired nerves. These are the people who have realized the depth and fullness of life, who have suffered and fought,-and conquered. They have come to know the truth of Anna Robertson Brown's essay, "IVhat is Worth While," in which she says: "The Eternal Life is serene. It is not careworn, nor knows it any foreboding of future ill. Can we not take to ourselves its large spirit of serenity and c,heer'? \Ve may let go discontent. In all the eternal ye:lrs there is no word of murmur from ally restless heart. In its vast silences how trivial would sound the coni~)lainings of our harassed days!" I am speaking ~iov to all the Frisco women. No two of us are just alike. No two of us have the same ambitions, the same ideas of pleasure or of what is worth while. Rut I do not doubt me can all make onr lives count for more than they now do. To those of 11s who have always been "dreamers of dreauis," I would say, do 11ot give

It may seem ;I long hilrd road and the difticulties be almost insurmountable, hut hold on and work and hope and there can be but one outcome. 110 not be discouraged because of the circumstances surrounding you. It may seem impossible to realize your ambitions in your present environment, but Carlyle says, "The situation that has not its duty, its ideal, was never yet 0ccLIl~ied by Inan. yes, here, in this poor miserable, han~pered, despicable act~~al, wherein thou even now stnndest. here or nowhere is they ideal: work it out tlkerefro~n, and vorking believe, live, be free.

I know whereof I speak, for in my own life I have proved true these things. To those women, if there be any in the Frisco family, whose eyes are, figuratively speaking, always fixed upon the ground, I would say, "Look up!" There is always God's blue Sky above you, His sunshine surrounding you and the moon and the stars to lift the heart alld the mind from the sordid cares of life. If yon do not care for books-the best books-cultivate a taste for them and you will be surprised at the unguessed pleasures life holds.

But I take five minutes' the, slt down and read an especially fascinating chapter from "The Tale of Two Cities," or "Les AIisernbles," or a favorite poem from Browning or Riley. Then while my hands are doing the tasks I so much dreaded, my mind is "far afield" and the day is a red letter day, for it has been spent with the master minds of thz world. I hare spoken of tne person whose atmosphere was a blessing to all those who come within its radius. There are also people wlio are s~~rrounded by a deadly miasma. It chokes all the good impulses and makes us wish to get as far from them as possible. They are fond of repeating malicious gossip and shady stories and life and love and all the things me had thought -
35 so beautiful assume a vulgar, depressing and sordid aspect. What is your atmosphere? Let us determine to make it one of purity and strength. Let us get a broader outlook and realize more fully that, "No one liveth to himself," but that we have a power for good or evil and an influence the bounds of which we cannot guess. To some of us the Safety First idea does not seem of much importance, or seems unreal or far away, and not a vital part of our lives. But let us hold it off and look at it fairly and realize that we are a cog in the machinery and that only through the perfect working of every part can we obtain a perfect whole. We can all do something and by our thought for our loved ones and those of our sisters in this big Frisco family, our own lives will be sweeter and our outlook broader. THE FRISCO-MAN 33 Itnow what you mean when you say Safety First. If you are not doing anything-get busy, so you will have something to write.
