Yesterday the lectures given at
Ihe safety car by Mr. Thomas, of
the bureau of safety of the Bur
lington, drew out a large attend
ance of the men employed in the
shops to listen lo the interesting
talk on the means of preventing
so many of the injuries that oc
cur in I lie railroad service.
There were a number of slides
shown that depicted the different
forms that are most common in
accidents in railroad work, and all
of which are caused by careless
ness on Ihe part of someone. The
slides showing the upturned nails
in a board brought out what is
one of the most frequent ac
cidents in railroad work,' and
which some months ago caused
from thirl y-five to forty accidents
of this kind over the Burlington
system. The safety committee
began to take the matter in hand,
and as a result Ihe number was
decreased to about fifteen a
month, and the employes all over
the system are beginning to take
notice and whenever a board with
a nail in it is lounii U is either
urned down or thrown into a
ubbish pile where there is no
anger of anyone walking on it.
Accidents, such as stepping on
ails or getting lingers or hand
mashed by hammers are the most
frc(ucnt in this city and Ihe
areful attention that was given

Throughout Ihe shops every ef
irt is being made lo cut down to
le lowest possible figure the
umber of accidents, ami it is a
matter lo feel very much pleased
over I Hal trie number ot serious
accidents are growing less each
ly. The lectures given by Mr.
i'lioiiias are well worth attend
ing and anyone is beneliteu by
seeing the slides and especially
when it is remembered the large
number of trespassers killed
very year on Ihe property, of the
ompany, where I hey will go, re
gardless of Ihe fact that they en-
langer their lives by so doing.
Last evening at the home of the
bride's mother, Mrs. (ieorge P.
Weidman, occurred the marriage
of two of Pliittsmotith's most
popular young people, in the per
sons of Mr. Nelson Jean and Miss
Frances Weidman. The wedding
was a very quiet home affair, in
compliance with the wish of the
contracting parlies, and was at
tended by some thirty of the rela
tives of the bride and groom. The
pastor of the First Presbyterian
Church, Rev. M. W. Lorimer, per
formed the ceremony promptly at
8 o'clock, which united these
worthy young people, and after
receiving the congratulations of
the families of both and a few
hours of enjoyment, they depart
ed for their home, which the
groom had prepared for his
bride, and they will make their
home here in Ihe future. The
contracting parties were both
born and reared in this county

Spring Vegetables.
The food in Ihe springtime
should receive better attention
than it generally does, especially
unripe vegetables and strawber
ries containing too much acid.
Vegetables, cooked thoroughly,
are good for everybody, but
should not form an exclusive
diet. Uncooked vegetables and
strawberries may be the cause of
various eruptions, rheumatism
and diarrhoea. As soon as you
will notice some uneasiness, use
