periencing the hardships of pioneering.
Her life was one of sacifice and
unselfish devotion to those about her,
performing each service willingly un
til enfeebled by age, she was no long
er able to do for others the kindness
which had been her habit through life.
She tvas the last of her family, and
in her last days was tenderly cared for
by children of a brother to whom she
had taken the place of the mother they
had lost in early childhood, and by
whom she will be greatly missed and
sincerely mourned. She leases many
relatives and a host of friends who
have known her for the sterling
qualities she possessed.
Funeral services were held at the
home at 2 o’clock October 9th, and she
was laid to rest beside her sister and
brother in Woodlawn cemetery.

Railway Terms Defined
STATEMENTS OF RAILWAY OPERATIONS are often misunder
stood and frequently misquoted on the public platform and in pub
lished articles. The following information is given to assist in secur
ing a clearer understanding of the terms employed in stating the re
sults of railway operations: ,
RAILWAY OPERATING REVENUE: This consists of all revenue re
ceived by the railway for transportation services, including freight,
pasenger, mail, express and other allied services. This also includes
revenue arising from storage, demurrage and other activities incident
to the performance of transportation, in fact, all re^nue growing out
of the transportation activities of a railway.
RAILWAY OPERATING EXPENSES are those expenses incurred in
connection with the performance of transportation services, including
maintenance of fixed property, locomotives and cars, together with the
expenses of wages, fuel,, material and supplies necessary for the move
ment of traffic, but not including taxes or payments for the use of other
companies’ equipment and ^property used jointly.
NET REVENUE FROM RAILWAY OPERATION is the railway oper
ating revenue, defined above, less the' railway operating expenses.
NET RAILWAY OPERATING INCOME is the net revenue from rail
way operation less taxes, uncollectible revenue, payments for use of
other companies’ equipment and facilities used jointly. This is the
amount which the railway company realizes from its transportation
activities, and is available for the payment of rentals of leased lines
and interest on indebtedness; the remainder, if any, may be carried to
surplus or applied to dividends.
REASONABLE RETURNS: The Transportation Act requires the
Interstate Commerce Commission to ascertain the value of railway
property and name a reasonable rate of return upon the same. This
rate they have fixed at 5% per cent. A railroad, whose value has been
ascertained by the Commission to be 100 million dollars, and whose
“net railway operating income” is 5% million dollars annually, is re
ceiving the reasonable return of 5% per cent upon its property, as fixed
by the Commission.
The net revenue from railway operation should not be confused with
net railway operating income. The necessity of this is apparent
when it is realized that the net revenue from the railway operation if
all Class 1 railways in the United States in the year 1922 was $1,144,
051,185, while the net railway operating income was! but $759,945,517,
a difference of $385,105,668.
All the railroads in the United States are required by law to make re
ports under oath of their activities to the Interstate Commerce Com
mission, using the terms above which are prescribed by that Com
mission. These reports are on file in the Commission s office at
Washington, and are available to the public.
