The Printing Industry
Compared With Others.
Looking with envious eyes at the five
preceding industries to the printing in
dustry, to say nothing of the five fol
lowing industries, one wonders what is
the mutter with -the printer! You could
shut your eyes in any ordlnury assem
blage in New York City, sticking out
our finger, and hit a millionaire made
by meat, or automobiles, or lumber, or
steel, or Hour. You would only have
to opeu the half of one eye to find mil
lionaires produced by handling cotton
goods, clothing, boots and shoes and
shoes. The eleventh industry on the
list, that of tobacco manufacturers,
sprouts millionaires at every joint of
the plant which gives it name, and I
notice that printers help to keep them
millionaires in providing them with
printing at prices many times at less
There U nothing Uft but the sad con
clusion that the printer, as one man
representing a great and vastly import
ant art, is Inefficient, certainly so in its

Probably the ordinary traveler nev
er gives more than a passing thought
to tho operation of a railroad and what
It means. Of course, if the dining
car Is full, the poor servlco of that
particular road comes In for comment,
though tho fact that the patrons of a
railroad can travel between Chicago
and New York at tho rate of fifty
miles an hour, and have all tho com
forts that they have at home, hardly
calls for passing comment. Why
should It? We aro so accustomed to
unusual luxuries that most of them
have become necessities.
The problems of railway manage
ment, operation, construction, and
maintenance aro too numerous even
to mention, but perhaps something
as to one phase of railroading will
servo to give at least a glimpse of
the Intricate mechanism of the rail
way Industry. Railroads for tho most
part buy thelrcar3, locomotives, rails,
bridges, and signals. In some few in
stances the equipment Is built by the
roads themselves in their own shops,
but this Is the rare exception and not
the rule. To supply tho needs of tho
inllroads there has grown up an enor
mous Industry known as railway sup
ply manufacturing. These railway
supply manufacturers aro the special
ists to whom the railroads go for a
thousand and one things. When the
railroads wanted to Increase the speed
of their locomotives they went to tho
builders, and If the designing of a fast
er locomotive was a comparatively
slmplo thing, which It was not, even
after that had been settled caino the
question of safely Increasing tho speed
of trains. How was this to bo done?
Here again the railroads went to their
specialists, the manufacturers of rail
ways supplies, and the problem of
safety running high-speed trains was
solved in the air-brake. Even the or
dinary layman Is familiar with the
name Westlnghouse. But the running
of high-speed trains safely Is depend
ent upon something more than the air
brake. Probably not one man In a thou
sand, who travels upon a railroad, has
any Idea that the efficiency of the en
tire braking apparatus may be Im
paired by a poorly designed and con
structed brake beam. What a brake
beam Is, and what Its duties are, are
quite unknown outBldo of the railroad
field, ami yet hero Is a structure,
weighing comparatively but a few
pounds, that Is called upon to take
the powor of tho air-brake and apply
It to the rapidly revolving wheels of
tho train, not occasionally, but hun
dreds of times upon a single trip.
Without this brake beam, high-speed
trains would bo Impossible. By Bruce
