The Individual Car Owners Association
of the t'nlted States Is now In session at
Cleveland. O., Some four hundred firms
and corporations owning special equipment
cars of various kinds are represented In
the membership of this association. They I
own approximately aon.rmo cars. Little Is j

public, and yet the achievements of Its
members affect the entire nation. They
have changed the whole trend of the meat
business In the I'nlted States; they have
wrought a revolution In the fruit Industry
of the country; they have accomplished re
markable changes In the vegetable-growing
business of the nation; and they have made
osslble things undreamed of a century
In recent years much has been written
about the wickedness of the private car
Ines of the country and the evils they have
brought about. Yet they were born of
sheer necessity. When Gustavus Swift
started his packing business In Chicago, he
found It Impossible to market his meats In
the east owing to lack of suitable trans
portation facllltites. The railroads were
transporting the live cattle from the prair
ies to the eastern markets, and ns the
traffic In live cattle gave them about 1(W
per cent more business than the traffic In
dressed beef, they were, of course, not
hasty In welcoming the Idea of changing
from the transportation of cattle td the
hauling of beef. Furthermore, feeding sta
tions had been established all along the
lines of the railroads where the cattle were
removed from the cars and fed enroute.
Th people who were Interested In these
feeding stations were no more friendly to
the Idea of dressed beef transportation
than were the railroads.
It was very fortunate for Mr. Swift and
for the future history of the beef Industry
that there was one line running to New
York which was too circuitous for the
hauling of live cattle. That line was the
Grand Trunk railway, and as It had no
cattle traffic It was glad enough to get
the dressed beef business, provided It did
not have to furnish the equipment necess
ary to hauling this class of freight. It
agreed that If the specially designed cars
required for the business were furnished
by the shippers, It would be glad to route
them over Its line. In that agreement
was born the private enr line of the United
Slates. After the Grand Trunk began
hauling dressed beef the other roads Were
glad to follqw suit.
The same sort of condition prevailed when
the Standard Oil people wanted to rhip the r
oil In tank cars, and also when ihe fruit
growers and the stock men wa.ited tJ call
into service special equipment. In every
case the railroads refused 1.0 furnish the
special cars required In the different lines
of business. In one sense tti 3 history of
the private car really goes back furthvr
than the beginning o ftlio dressed beef
Industry. When railroads tlmtSvere built
It was Intended that they should be cpei
ated on the turnpike or toll-road principle.
All users . thereof were to furnish their
own cars, and the railroad company was
to- charge a toll for passing over Its line.
In the earliest iliiys of railroading the cats
were drawn to hoises.' Then th'i loomutUe
became a Substitute for the horse, and
for a while, two tolls were levied;' the
one for the use; of the road, and the other
for the use of the motlvo power. It soon
was found thnt such a plan of operation
was ottt of the question, tho average rail
road train of that day looking like a verit
able, Noah's Ark of vehicles, nil shape and
sizes, and In all degrees rif repair. So the
railroads took over the cars of all snippets
and the private car was dead for the time
being. .
Later on, as the Star of Kmpire passed
westward across the Alleghehles, and on
toward the Rocky niouniulnS ahd the Pa
cific ocean, there was found to be a great
demand for through frelgnt service. No
railroad could give such 'service, as each
was but a small link In a long chain of
little lines. Such railroad facilities as
through routes and Joint rates were as
yet unheard of, ahd the shipper had little
recourse for the unusual damages arising
from the very frequent trans-shlpmcnr of
goods from one line to anot'ier on their
Journey from the west to the east. The 1 ail-
roads were unwilling lo be the pioneers In
the establishment of through joules and
joint rates, and It fell to the slippers them
selves to organize such routes and
rates, through the operation of pri
vately owned fart freight llnel. After
awhile the railroads saw tint the fast
freight lines were making more money out
of the business than they were, so they
took over these lines and operated them
on a co-operative baRis, the lines being
distinguished by the colors of their cars,
such as the orange, blue, red ind white

Astringents May Sometimes
Take the Place of Face Powder
A special request I have Just received,
Which Seems to me to be of genera! Interest,
is, How shall one avoid the use of powder
on the face? To tell the truth, few women
can get along without powder in some form,
and there Is not the slightest objection to
It If one Is chosen that Is simple In com
position. If the application Is washed off
at night and the face always cleansed be
fore retiring the pores will remain un
clogged and the skin smooth. It Is only
when powders having lead and other In
jurious ingredients are used habitually and
permitted to remain on that the complexion
Is harmed. Yet when there Is a deeply
tooted prejudice against powder dally ap
plications of pronounced astringents some
times act aa substitutes by neutralizing the
natural oil of the skin. But in order to
apply any such liquids successfully a
woman murt study her face carefully and
know which part requires it. If the nose
Is not greasy It sometimes follows that the
cheeks near It and the chin may be, while
the outer edge of the cheeks and the fore
head are dry. A strong astringent. If put
over thoss naturally dry sections, will sim
ply act to give them a chapped appearance,
because there Is no oil In those regions to
require neutralizing. Therefore the nose
Is not to be tieated, but only the skin
near It.
The most pronounced astringent I know
Is saturated solution of borax. It Is made
by almost filling a bottle with clear water
and then putting In all the powdered borax
that the water can be made to dissolve.
There Is no fear of adding too much borax,
for what cannot be taken up by the water
Will mtnaln a, powder In the bottom. This
liquid may be perfumed if one wishes.
. It is applied to tlu skin with a soft bit
of line 11 or muslin and dries on. Should It
not sgres the skin will become chapped.
Mlrhigan Central railroad In the sixties.
Ordinary box cars were flllsj with )
tanks and catch basin nnl perishable
goods were shipped In theni. In IVt? the
Pennsylvania railroad had thirty box cars
refitted with double sMos and the Spaces
between these sides were ftllel with saw
dust, making a huge Ice box on wheels. The
first patent on a refrigerator car Wis Is
sued to J. It. Sutherland of Detroit. Mich.,
November 2i, M. In the next year 1. W.
Davis, also of ltnst, patented the Davis
car, and In lS-y shipped the first load of
Chicago dressed beef to New York.
The first attempt to ship fruit In refriger
ator boxes was In lssti. Parker Karle of
Cobdert, 111., was the experimenter. In ISt
he shipped several carloads of penches, but
they were spoiled In transit.. The following
year he built a pre-coollng station on his
fruit farm and later tpade many success
ful shipments. This pre-coollng station Idea
has laid dormant for more than a third of
a century, and Its recrudesence In Cali
fornia during the present fruit sesson
marks what Is believed ly fruit men td be
the most Important event iu the history of
perishable freight 'transportation since the
beginning of the refrigerator car. Under
methods heretofore obtaining cars loaded
with fruit were Iced at the Initial point, re
quiring from three to four days to bring
the temperature of the cargo to the neces
sary point for safe shipment. During this
time, If the fruit wore not pulled a little
green, It would become over-ripe. The
result has been that the consumer Is forced
to eat fruit artificially ripened. Anyone who
has eaten bananas, oranges or other fruits
that were ripened on the tree knows how
much sweeter and better they are than
those which were pulled before ripe. Under
the pre-coollng methods which are now be
ing used again, the whole world In the fu
ture may enjoy the luxury of naturally
ripened fruit, although It has to be shipped
1.000 miles or more. ,Vnst supplies of cold
nlr are forced Into the car until Its contents
have a proper temperature. Icing follows
and the car Is sent on Its way.
Stock cars were owned pvlvitteiy ns far
back as the seventies. In 1MS3 an exposition
of transportation equipment was held In
Chicago and many "palace live stock cars"
were exhibited. Among them was the
Mather car, Invented by A. C. Mather, and
now the leading type of stock car In the
United States. Mr. Mather was on a trip
to the east. In which his train was wrecked.
While waiting to resume his Journey he saw
a carload of cuttle in which some four or
five were deild and a half doxen so badly
injured that they could hot stand. This
suggested to him tlw need of a stock car
which would permit the humane transpor
tation of cattle and other stock, end when
ho had perfected such a car he took It to
the raldroads, but they refused to buy his
patent. It was only by having the ran
built and used as a private line that he was
successful in getting tho stock cars Into
the rullway service.
The average compensation of tho private
car lines throughout the country Is three
rourths of a cent a mile for the distance
covered by a car, whether tunning empty or .
loaded. It Is figured out that the average
car of the special equipment variety runs
about 100 miles a day1 throughout tho year.
It will be seen from this that the revenues
of the private car lines, aside from the re
frigerator car service amount to about 73
cents a day per car. In the case of the
refrigerator lines extra charges are made
for the Icing of gobds In transit. Many
lines of railroads are beginning to operate
their own refrlgeiator cars.' The Sante Fe
and the Harrlman lines have taken the
leadership in this particular. .U Is ad
mitted, however, that the averagu railroad
cannot maintain Its own refrigerator cat
service, since the period In which It could
operate such a strvlce profitably Is limited
to the comparatively short fruit season In
the territory covered by the line. The aver
age refrigerator car costs about 1,100, and
would be a dead Investment to the average
railroad for more than half the year. The
reduction in transportation charges incident
to the installation of the refrigerator car
service has been so gteat that where the
charges on California fruit to New York a
quarter of a century ago Was 7 cents a
popnd It Is now less than I cent.
Great losses often are sustained by the,
private car lines. A few years ago one line
undertook to handle the North Carolina
berry crop. Because of the fact that Its
supply of cars ran about half a day behind
the demand, much fault whs spoiled and
the car line paid out $75,000 In claims. In
another case this car line filled all of its
Georgia Ice houses with ice from Maine In
anticipation of a big peach crop, but a late
frost destroyed the crop and the entire
supply of Ice was a dead loss to the car
