1911, to Juno 30,
1912, the railroads

"fend Injured 109,538. Theseilgures show
an lncreaso over tho year 1910-1911 of
189 killed and 19,379 Injured. Out of
the total number of casualties In tho
current year 318 were passengers,
3,085 employes, and 6.G32 other per

In the total number of. employes kill

persons killed other than passengers
and employes. Of the persons Injured,
16,385 were passengers, 143,442 em
ployes and 10,710 persons other than
passengers and employes.
It was the annual slaughter of rail
road men. The number has been in
creasing every year, and apparently
there Is no wax f mitigating the dead
illness of railway operation. Safety de
vices have failed to help much, in any
event, you cannot make a 150

Tho employes are good men most
of them thoroughly experienced In
their work but they are Inclined to

swing on and off of cars In motion
wtjen there is no remotest need of It;
thoy crawl Under cars without notify

WIr -Intention, and an Instant later
ttiey are maimed or killed. And these
aroonly a few of tho "chances" taken
by" these men almost hourly in the
yards, on tho trains and along the
tracks of every great railway system
of the country.
Railway officials are waking up to
tho uselessness and the cost of this
slaughter and are trying to teach their
men to be more careful. Many of the

PATRONS WELL CARED FOR
Schedule Might Be Disarranged hy
Such a System as This, but
Accommodation Is Fine.
The conversation had drifted" to rail
roads. A young woman rom the
southern part of tho state told, of an
unusually courteous and accommodat
ing steam railroad that had terminals
in her town.
"I called up tho conductor on the
phone," she said, "and told him Jim
might bo a little lato, but he wanted
them to bo sure and wait for him.
"Why, yes," she volunteered, not
ing tho surprise of her audience. "I
always call up when Jim wishes to
take the train, but will be late, and
thoy hold it for him. Dut as I start
ed to say, I called up tho conductor,
and Jim, who was Just putting on his
hat, called out:
"'Did I tell you about tho school
teacher down the lino who very nearly
miBsed tho train tho other evening
after school?' I told him he hadn't, and
he went on by saying:
" 'She saw the train down by tho
station. She was about two blockB
away, and started to run. She saw
the conductor waving his arms more
violently, and she buckled down and
mado the gravel fly to get to tho train.
She reached the train, and the con
ductor walked up to her and said she
oughtn't to run liko that; that tlfo
train wouldn't start for about 20 min
utes, as it was waiting for a fellow.
Ho had been waving to her to slow up.
The conductor explained that ho knew
she was a regular patron, and. he
would not let tho train pull out with
out telephoning her first and seeing
whether she was going along.'" In
Longest Straight Railroad.
The longest stretch of railway In
the world without a curvo Is In New
Zealand, where there is a line of rail
way a part of which stretches for a
distance of 13G miles in a perfectly
straight lino. This fact is remarkable
when it Is taken into consideration
that New Zealand is ono of the most
difficult countries In the world for
railway construction, as It Is very
mountainous, necessitating sharp

Chicago. Tho sea-cow a strange
animal on exhibition in a "loop" storo

created a small panic In tho Imme

according to the best authorities on
tho subject, ought to bo extinct, wab

the Stato street door.
Sunday it was decided to feed tho
animal on fish, nnd on Tuesday tho
dlot wnB changed to Florida oranges,
spinach, tomatoes and other delicacies.

Tho climax came when there was
a sudden upheaval of the water in
the tank, a loud hissing noise, and an
Indignant sea-cow arose In Its wrath.
One thousand five hundred pounds of
adipose tlssuo collided with the steel
supports of 'tho tank, and many gal
lons of water flooded tho building. A
general stampede was made from the
Efforts to corral tho animal were of
no avail. With ono sweep of Its tail
It demolished tho rest of the tank and
the Imitation grass that surrounded
it. All was chaos, and the exhibitors
wore at their wits' end.
Finally a cowboy, by namo Frank
Leonard, proved himself tho real hero,
lassoing tho animal with somo tele
phone cable that had been left In the
back of tho building. Now the sea
cow lies peacefully In a newly-made
and much stronger tank.
LOST U. S. WOMAN FOUND
Taken to Hospital In Italy She Ex

Rome. Mrs. William Mansfield, the
American woman, whose disappear
ance has caused much anxiety to her
friends and occasioned an Investiga

been found in Venice, according to a
dispatch to the Qlornalo d'ltalla.
Mrs. Mansfield arrived in Venice a
fortnight ago and took a room at a
boarding house, which she left. Tho
police came upon her lying uncon
scious In tho street and removed her
to a hospital. On regaining conscious
ness the woman said that sho had
been overcome by Illness and had
fainted. She remained in tho hospital
all night and left in tho morning.
The police say sho told tliem she
belonged to a wealthy New York fam
ily, and that the name of her hus
band, from whom Bho was separated,
was William Mnnsfleld.
Mrs. Mansfield left Salo, on Lako
Garda, about "two weeks ago after
cashing an American check for $60 at
a bank. She said sho was going to
Verona to buy paint brushes, but thc.ro
is no trace of her having stayed at
any hotel In Verona. Apparently she
went direct to Venice.
COON AND WOLF BATTLE HARD
Caught In Steel Jaws of Traps the
Two Animals Clawed and Bit
Sallna, Kan. C. E. Mattox, a trap
per on the Smoky Hill river, saw a
fight between a coyote and a coon
near ono of his straw stacks." There
aro several traps near the stack and
one of tho animals was caught In one.
The ether animal came along for a
fight and was caught In ono of the
other traps close enough to they could
reach each other.
Infuriated by the pain of the traps,
the animals attacked each other tho
more fiercely and each soon was In
another trap. When Mr. Mattox found
thorn four traps bad snapped on the
coon and three on the wolf. Doth
were exhausted, but still fighting. The
ground showed that the battle had
been waging for several hours. The
coon had the better of the fight and
when tho wolf was about dead the
trapper ended tho fight with a club.

KEEPING TRACK OF THE CARS
How the Car Accountant Records the
Movements of Each Car In
When a car passes off tho road own
ing It, the conductor handling the car
on the last division of the home road
reports to tho car accountant that the
car was delivered to such, a foreign
roud at such a place. This road then
becomes responsible for tho car until
It has been hauled to the end of Its
line and turned over to another road,
when what Is known as an "Inter
change card" is forwarded to the own
er of the car Informing him that the
car has passed off his road and has
been delivered to the connecting line,
which then becomes responsible for
the car In the same manner as the pre
vious road, until the owner of tho car
can bo notified that It has been dellv.
ered to somo other company.
The car accountant, on receiving
the conductor's train sheets, first
checks them against the reports which
aro sent him by tho checkers at tho
different division points. The car
numbers are then entered In a record
book, against tho proper stations at
which tho cars are reported. The sta
tions along the road, Instead of being
Known ny ineir correct names, are
designated by numbers, and theso
numbers represent not only tho sta
tions, but the number of miles these
stations aro from the terminal.
Thus, the number "120" would rep
resent a station of a certain namo
which Is 125 miles from tho terminal
of the road. At tho end of tho month,
when tho mileage Is figured, theso
numbers facilitate the work greatly,
is when an Item occurs of ton cars
moved from the terminal of the road
to station 125, the mileage Is readily
seen to be 125 miles.
