facts essential to any scientific pro
cess of rate fixing do not exist in any
of our railway systems.
"Why not? Because our railway
managers and directors have steadily
and almost unconsciously defeated
all attempts to induce them to keep
all accounts in such a manner as will
yield tho knowledge which is
essential to adequate public control.
No railway manager knows, or seeks
to know, the true work and earning
capacity of the various sorts of roll
ing stock that he employs. Elemen
tary facts such as the average rate
per passenger per mile, the average
rate per ton per mile for traffic, he
refuses to supply.
"It is no secret that the committee
appointed three years ago by David
Lloyd-George to examine the methods
of railway accounts has met with a
stubborn refusal of the railway man
agers to supply these and other rele
vant sorts of information."
The policy of consolidation has ap
parently been stimulated by the hard
times through which the British rail
ways, in common with those of the
United States, passed in 1908. A
few great companies now virtually
control the railway business of the
islands and "pooling" is said to have
become much more generally prac
ticed in recent years. The most sig
nificant feature of the operation of
the combination policy was the cut
ting off last October of a number of
express trains between London and
Manchester and the reduction of time
between the two cities, by the Great
Northern and Great Central compa
nies. The three great Scotch lines,
the Caledonian, North British and
Glasgow and Southwestern formed a
working arrangement that specified
traffic areas for each company, with
drew what were considered superflu
ous t.rn.lnn and steamboats and re-
I vised excursion and week-end fares.
These changes reduced the numper of
employes of the railroads consider
ably and added strength to the ele
ment among the employes in favor of
nationalization. Chicago Record-Herald.
AS THE TWIG BENDS
Kendall had a son who was tho
pride of his heart. One day he found
one of his favorite cherry trees cut
"Jack," he said, "did you do that?"
With quivering lip Jack replied:
"Father, I can not deceive you; I did
not cut the tree down; Billy Brown
did it, but I bossed the job."
Tears of joy rprang into the fath
er's eyes. "Bless you, my boy," ho
said. "Billy will bc-president of tho
United States, but you will be chair
man of the national committee."
FOLLOWING A PRECEDENT
The old bachelor's married sister
was inspecting his den.
"And you make your bed only
once or twice a year?" she said.
"That's about right, Nervy," ho
"How do you make it, if you don't
mind telling me?"
"Oh, I turn it over and kind o'
mix it up."
"Why, you horrid old thing!
That's the way the Missouri river
does." Chicago Tribune.

Sun tell de stars: "Git out my way!
I got ter climb up higher,
De weary world de winter long
' Been freezin' fer my fire!
"I got ter rise
An' light dem skies;
I rise an' shine,
An' shine an' rise!
"I tell de green worl' howdy do
De winter don an' gone,
An' how yo' family an' you? -
Oh, how you comin' on?
"I rise, I rise
Ter light yo' skies
I iise an' shine,
An' shine an rise!
"Hit's time for you ter sow de seed 1
Mak!e green grass come ter hay,
Or else you won't have nuttin' 'tall

"Des watch me rise
An' light yo skies.

Subscribers flflvermins Dept.
A great many of our subscribers
havo been quick to redllzo tho hand
some profit they can make by adver
tising In our Little Advertisement De
partment. Wo started this department
of little advertisements expressly for
our subscribers, so they could adver
tise at the very low price of 6 cents
per word, their farms, homes, lands,
surplus llvo stock, poultry, eggs, bees,
birds, pet stock, seeds, plants, nursery
stock, produce, Implements' they had
outgrown but which were still useful,
etc. It didn't take our big army ot
subscribers long to find out that it
pays to advertise in Tho Commoner's
Subscribers Advertising Department.
The rate of six cents per word is rela
tively much smaller than tho cent a
word rate charged by papers of 1,000
circulation. Tho Commoner has a
guaranteed circulation of 145,000, so
tho actual cost to you Is about 1 cent
per word for 24,000 clroulation. Somo
of our subscribers now, not- only ad
vertise their miscellaneous wants, but
have built up a regular mail order
business from these small advertise
ments, and ralso stock, etc., on pur
pose ior tneir customers secured oy
advertising. A good many sell goods
and articles of their own mako, or act
as agents for manufacturers.
You can- make money and build up a
nice little business of your own by
using this department to placo your
proposition before The Commoner's big
army of readers. If you havo anything
to buy or sell it will pay you to uso
