Illinois Central System's Appreciation
of Its Faithful Employes
' ' The pension department of the Illinois Central System, which has been in
operation twenty-one years, is a strong factor in promoting the allegiance of em
ployes. The Illinois Central System was the third railroad in the .country to es
tablish a pension system for its employes, and up to date it has paid out to pen
sioners a total of $2,-456,000.00. Since the adoption of the pension system 1,499
employes have been retired on pension.
Under the pension system as operated by the Illinois Central System, each
year of service by an employe serves in the same manner as the payment of a
premium on an endowment insurance policy. The main difference is that there is
no charge whatever against the employe. The pension system is financed entirely
by the railroad.
The amount of the pension awarded depends upon the length of service and
the average pay. For each year of continuous service the pensioner is allowed 1
pef cent of the average monthly pay received during the last ten years of his
Thus, an employe with thirty years of service to his credit who had received
an average of $150 a month during the last ten years would, upon retiring, re
ceive SO per cent of $150, or $45, a month duringhe remainder of his life; with
forty years of service he would receive $60 a month, and with fifty years of service
he would receive $75 a month.
An employe with thirty years of service to his credit who had received an
average of $200 a month during the last ten years would, upon retiring, receive 30
per cent of $200, or $60, a month durin g the remainder of his life ; with forty
years of service he would receive $80 a month, and with fifty years of service he
would receive $100 a month. "
An employe with thirty years of service to his credit who had received an
1 average of $250 a month during the last ten years would, upon retiring, receive
30 per cent of $250, or $75, a month during the remainder of his life, with forty
years of service he would receive $100 a month, and with fifty years of service he
would receive $125 a month.
The minimum pension is $25 a month, and any employe entitled to less than
that under the computation as outlined receives the minimum. N
An employe does not have to live to be any certain age in order to obtain the
benefits of the pension system, if he becomes incapacitated for work. In some
cases employes who have not been in the service more than fifteen years regard
less of their age, have been pensioned. The rule is that any employe who. becomes
incapacitated after twenty-five years of service is entitled to be pensioned.
In addition to the foregoing, the pensioned employes of the Illinois Central System receive
other consideratfona which atteai the esteem in which they are held by the railroad, among them
annual passes for themselves and their wives ever the lines of the entire Illinois Central System.
That the interest of the pensioned employes and their loyalty to the company can be
counted upon haa been evidenced many times by their readiness to return to active service and
' render tveh assistance aa they can in times of emergency.
The board of pensions, which administers the department, is composed of officers who" them
selves have been In the service of the railroad many years. The service records of the board mem
bers range from eighteen to forty-six yeare.
We believe that the employes of the Illinois Central System as a body are as efficient and
as loyal aa any large body of employes in the service of any other railroad or any -other large in
dcttey. They are invaluable to our railway system and our patrons, and we believe that our
patrons have that same high appreciation of their fidelity and loyalty and efficiency that we have.
Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited.

President, Illinois Central System
He soon reached the limb where
the bird's nest hung. Up there thc
nest seemed farther from the stem
of the tree than he had thought it
when he stood on the ground be
low. But Cuffy had no thought of
turning back. He began to creep
out on the slender limb, which bent
and swayed beneath his weight.
"Oh I He'll fall!" Matilda crieA
"You'd better be careful of your
new suit!" Silkie called to him.
Cuffy Bear paused. He wished he
hadn't been so quick to tell Matilda
he would get the nest for her.
"Come back!" said Matilda. "You
can't reach it. I didn't think you
"Yes. I can." Cuffy replied. "I
can reach it. This is easy." And he
edged farther out upon the limb.
"If mother knew" Silkie began.
"Keep still!" Cuffv roared. "Do
you want me to fall?"
"Then don't talk! Talking takes
my mind off what I'm doing."
So Silkie kept still. With upturned
faces she and Matilda watched Cuffy,
who began to look very unhappy.
He gazed down it the dark waters
of the creek below and clung more
tightly to his frail perch.
"Don't try any more!" ilatilda
urged him. "I'll have my big brother
get the nest for me. He won't hi
That was all that Cuffy needed to
send him on.
'I'll have it in a second now," he
declared. As he spoke he made a
quick move toward the nest. Then a
sharp crack sounded suddenly. Cuffy

She knew well enough that their

Curfy's ducking. Mrs. Bear would
be able to see for herself.
Cuffy thought there was a smile
on the face of Matilda. He couldn't
be sure, for she turned her back on
