BETTER PASSENGER ACCOM
MODATIONS ON THE 6. & M.
From Wednemlay'a Dally.
There are a great many cases
of grippe this season and very
often pneumonia follows. And
the I rouble is that the malady is
as liable to affect the strong and
robust as it is I be feeble and deli
cate. Indeed, persons who boast
of vigorous health have especial
jiecd for caution, for they are
prone lo regard a "slight cold' as
a mere Lrille of no concern. Tor
all Itiese one safe rule may be laid
down at Ibis lime of the year,
namely, that every .sufferer from
a cold should consult Hie family
physician. A cold, supplemented,
by I li.it "run-down" or "lired feel
ing," is ofleu a precursor of
wunel lung more serious and
dangerous. In the case of the
strong man or woman, as well as
the weak, persistent disregard oT
these danger signals is a templ
ing of fate.
When Ihe cold or cough comes,
the simple precautions tint all
physicians prescribe, such as
light ami judicious dieting, an
rtpiilahle temperature in the
home, ollice or workshop, avoid
ance of drafts and other forms of
exposure, and the clothing of the
body in a rational way, should be
observed. Hut, as we have inti
mated, the best reliance of all is
the doctor's advice. With the
lowering of I ho temperature and
the advent of old-fashioned win
ter weather, now seemingly at
linnd, pneumonia and the grippe
will lose some of their terrors: but
in a Duel iialing climate like ours
vigilant care of the body is es-
ncnlial throughout Ihe winter
months. Pneumonia is one, of
the most dreaded and treacherous
From WpilnoHiliiy's Dally.
The committee ol the Comnicr
rial club that made a visit to Ihe
ImrliiiKtiui headquarters in Oma
ha to interview the olllcials in re
gard lo securing belter train serv
ice hetween this cily and Omaha
and Lincoln, received encourage
ment from the gentlemen inter
viewed that they would try am
adjust Ihe service soa s to pro.
vide better service here. The pro.
posed change of No. 1 to run via
Omaha, if it could be scheduled to
slop here, would furnish an excel
lent train both lo Lincoln and
Omaha, and the running of No. L'.'l
on its old schedule of 1 :rH wouh
also allow those having business
in Omaha to complete I heir tasks
and return to this city on No. 1
whereas at the present Ihe run
ning lime of No. -.'I allows only an
hour and twenty minutes in Oma
ha to the passengers, and it is
ilmost impossible for anyone to
attend to any amount of business
in that length of time. Another
mailer touched upon was that of
having No 1 i run as a strictly
passenger train instead of a mixed
freight and passenger tram, as at
present. IMattsniouth sends most
of its passenger and freight busi
ness over the Jlurlington road,
and it should be entitled lo a bel

traveling public, of this cily.

-WE PAY THE
Highest Market Price
-AT ALL TIMES FOR
From VoiJne.sday'a Dally.
The local shops have been
greatly improved in ellieiency un
der Ihe able management of
Superintendent of Shops Ilaird,
and Ihe amount of work turned
out here has been greatly in
creased to the number of men
employed than the record for
former years show. Last year the
shops here turned out 3tt pas
senger coaches, repaired and
ready for service, or in other
words, a coach for every day in
the year, and this broke all pre
vious records made in the shops
by some thirty-three coaches. The
next highest number was in 1910,
when there were more men em
ployed and the working hours
wcro longer, and it shows that the
system of managing the shops is
joins constantly improved.
The boiler shop here has just
completed the first of five engine
tanks that are to be sent to llave-
ock lo be placed on Ihe loco
motives which are built there,
with the exception of the tanks
thai are turned out here. The tank
will leave today and bo ready for
service at once.
Another great movenunt that
has been undertaken in the shops
here is the campaign for Ihe
safelv of the employes from in
jury by gelling mixed up with Ihr
Machines that are used in diller-
cnt parts of the shops. In the
plaining mill, where the different
saws have in the past made the
work there very dangerous, the
system of protection to Ihe em
ployes has been made as near per
fect as possible; heavy rails have
been placed around the different
bell1- to prevent the clothing of
employes gelling caught in them,
as well as a system of self-locking
I brow-off s that prevent a machine
being started up without the
knowledge of Ihe man running the
machine. The saws have all been
equipped wilh guards, as well as
have the diTerenl gears of the ma
chine, and if is about as near
absolute safely in that department
as it is possible to make it. One
of the safely deires on the lie
plug culling machine is the idea
of Mr. Haird himself. The ma
chine consists of a long piece of
llevilde wood I hat is used to guide
the woodii blocks toward the
saw, and in the past it, was Ihe
habit of those running the ma
chine to hold Ihe blocks wilh Iheir
hand until the idea of Mr. liaird's
was carried out and the operator
is now not compelled lo risk los
ing a hand unless it is through
sheer carelessness on the part of
Ihe operator of Ihe saw. The
foreman of Ibis department, Mr.
Tippens, has made every effort to
prevent injury in his shop and
lias been very successful in hold
ing the number of accidents to
the lowest possible figure. The
safely devices have been placed
very extensively in the machine
shop and almost all the machines
used there where there is the
least danger of the employes get
ting their hands or clothing
caught has been protected by
shields anil guards, ami if a man
can gel his baud caught in any of
mi he will have to deliberately
stick his hand under the different
protecting guards. Foreman
Wales is a. great believer in the
safety first idea and he has done
his utmost to impress Ibis idea on
the different employes of the ma
chine shop. The large emery
wheels that are used in Ibis de
partment are all provided with
glasses to protect the eyes of
those grinding and has had oilier
safely appliances placed on the
wheels to prevent, the clothing of
those grinding being caught in (In

As a result of Ihe efforts of the
kop superintendent and the fore
men in the different departments
there has been only one accident
happen on Ihe machines in the
shops that was not due to some
carlessness on Ihe pari, of the man
injured or someone helping him,
which is' qnile often Ihe case.

liuring the year jusL closed, has
turned out a very large amount of
brass of different kinds, as well as
solder and piston packing. In the
car brasses there was turned out
in round numbers 975,(100 pounds
and of engine brasses 900,000
pounds. The value of this may
lie appreciated when it, is under
stood that Ihe brass is worth from

the price of the labor that enters
into the making of these brasses.
