The profession of railroading I. be
comlng quite as attractive as it is Im

Company has established a system of
promotion for its employers which le
bringing into its service an exceptional
ly ne quality of young men, who may
start by handling the brake, and this
plan is pretty to extend through the
railroad business. The system of vast
consolidations of Corporation will soon
render neeesary a government check and
control upon so enormous an aggrega
tion of brains, musclesand money as will
be employed, lest the railroads become
stronger than the govermn Itself.-
