Manhattan Cop Ordert
Mme. Joffre to Move On.
-While Marshal Joffre was step
ping from the Washington train
which brought him to the city last
week, Mme. Joffre stepped from the
car ahead. She watched the recep
tion committee greet her famous
husband hut no one gave her at
tention. So she and Mile. Joffre roamed
upstairs alone. They stood at the
exit where the automobiles were
vailing for the marshal to come
o;it. A policeman ordered them to
move on. Mme. Joffre shrugged
v. hfr shoulders and looked puzzled,

tomobile took her to her hotel.
ouple Compromise on
'Obey" in Ceremony.
The "little church around the cor
ner" has done many things to be
obliging, but it almost lost a wed
ding ceremony this week because its
ministers would not drop the word
"obey" from the service.
John II. Awtry of Dallas, Tex.,
and Miss Neil Jacohy, a student at
Barnard college, presented them
selves to be married. They brought
an argument with them. He wanted
the ! Vobey." She did . not think it
was necessary. He put it up to the
ministers. They agreed. In fact,
they would not marry the couple un
less "obey" was in. ;

Awtry agreed, in the presence of
witnesses, never to take advantage
of the word and Ci pid scored an
other victory. v.

There is a great demand from busi

"When I was young I regretted

Mrs. Alden. who is only 30 years

II. E. Jarvis. was secretary to the
president of the road at that time.

" She slipped out of the room as
soon as madame returned and posted
the-check to Enid Samrcr.
"You look very happy tonight,
cherie." madame said to her after
dinner when they were sitting in
madamc's own little room. It was
a warm evening and the window was
onpn to let in the mtld. soring air.
Farmer was sittinsr on the wide
window seat smoking, his eyes upon
Elizabeth, and madame lay full

said; she smiled at tanner. : As a

That was the day of the duchess

which Elizabeth had been told was to
be the greatest of her life.

Elizabeth asked easterly. She felt
like a child who listens to a fairy

she said dreamily. "I send you to

district attorney of Kings comity.
The police have abandoned their
first conclusion that the Jacksons
died natural deaths or, at any rate,
by poison taken accidentally. They
now say that Mr. and Mrs. Jackson
cither died in a suicide pact or were
poisoned by some bne who sent them
fruit loaded with a drug or chemi

and ensuing death.
The most important support of the
murder theory is the finding in Mr.
Jackson's stomach of a large piece
of fresh plum. That it was fresh
plum and not a preserved plum is
certain, according to Dr. Vaughan,
who made certain of this fact before
making his statement. ,

Illinois Central System Clears Up Point
About Railway Net Income
, The net railway operating income of the Class I railroads of the United
States for 1921? was at the rate of 3.31 per cent upon their tentative valuation as
established by the Interstate Commerce Commission for rate-making purposes.
Many have construed this to mean that the railroads realized a net income of
3.3 1 per cent available for dividends, enlargements and improvements. This is
far from being true. There is a great difference between "net railway operat
ing income" and "net income." .
Accounting methods are prescribed for the railroads by thi Interstate
Commerce Commission, and they are uniform for all railroads. After all oper
; ating'expenses and taxes have been provided for, and uncollectible accounts
have been deducted, and after funds have been set aside for the payment of
rentals on equipment and joint facilities, the balance left over from revenues is
called "net railway operating income," which was for 1921 the 3.31 per cent
referred to. Most railroads have some income from sources other than railway
operations, such as interest and dividends on securities owned, which, added to'
the "net railway operating income," constitutes what is known as "gross income."
There are certain fixed charges, however, which must be paid before the.
"net income" is established, chief among these being interest on the bonds and
the rental of leased lines. After making deductions for these, it is estimated
that there was practically nothing left of either the "net railway income" of 3.31

In other words, the railroads had no "net
Some railroads ared better than others during 1921, just as some business
, men and farmers fared better than others. Preferable location, foresighted
management, superior machinery with which to work these are elements which
have their influence in the showing made by a railroad, as they have in every
other business enterprise. - y
The railroads cannot serve the public adequately unless they are able to en
large and improve their properties as the requirements of the country for trans
portation service develop. In order . for the railroads to grow, their securities
must be attractive to investors, for the funds they receive from the issuance of
securities are used in improving their properties. : y
The Illinois Central System, in common wjth other railroads, is -striving to
render a service of satisfaction. It is eager to continue to improve and enlarge
its facilities, so that its plant may always be a little in advance of the needs of
its patrons. An overloaded machine is never efficient, and if the overloading
continues for any length of time fhe machine must necessarily deteriorate.
This statement is made in the interest'of a better understanding of rail
way problems. We ask that our patrons view the railway problem in its true
light ; that they realize that every obstacle placed in the path of railway progress
rebounds against them, as much as against the railroads themselves, and that
the interests of the railroads and the interests of the public are inseparable.
Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited.
C. H. MARKHAM,
, President, Illinois Central System.
