real estate in the difleernt locali
ties and probably invest in some

I hope you will inform yourself
regarding your community and
support its work. This you can
do in large measure by avoiding
all unnecessary risks in your own
work and using all possible care
to avoid injuries to yourself or
your co-emplnyes. The company
will continue its efforts to reduce
and remove, as far as possible,
the elements of danger that may
surround your work, and you can
assist it by reporting to your su
perior officer conditions of ways
or structures that appear lo
threaten injury, dangerous
methods of work that can be im
proved, or careless employes
whose conduct is likely to pro
duce injury lo tnemselves or
"If every employe on the Bur
lington will respond to this re
quest for co-operation and as
sistance, we believe that by the
exercise of greater care on the
part of employes, and the pro
vision of better safeguards on the
part of the company, a very large
decrease in the number of in
juries can be accomplished, and
much pain, unhapppiness and loss
of time on the part of employes
and others can be avoided."
Similar organizations now exist
on the Frisco, Northwestern, B. &
