AMERICA HAS THE ONLY
ONE-WOMAN RAILROAD IN
THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD
Mrs. Cor* B. Williams, railroad owner and manager.
The other day the Daily Times
told about Kansas' famous "one
man-railroad," built entirely by a
lone man. Now, today, we have
unearthed the "one-woman-rail
road." The owner of this one-
woman-railroad is Mrs. Cora B.
Williams of Atlanta, Ga.
Mrs. Williams is the only
known woman in the world who
owns and runs a railroad. It's
the Georgia, Florida and Alabama,
which runs for 200 miles through
a rich region of cotton, timber and

Capt. J. P. Williams, has just left

--000 of bonds and 90 per cent of
the stock, together with 250,000
acres of land and other interests
that bring her fortune up to over
And there isn't any doubt
about her being able to run It.
During the several years of her
husband's Illness before his death
she consulted with him on all
matters of finance and manage
ment, and toward the end was
practically in control of the rail
road system "herself. Now it ia
expected that the board of direc
tors will elect her president.
The railroad was built by
Capt. Williams, and he made"every
cent of his fortune himself. At
the close of the war he was penni
leas. He took « Job chopping
trees in a turpentine camp at $1
a day. Realizing the vast possi
bilities of southern timber lands,
little by little he Invested his
small savings and erected mills
and distilleries until he had ao
cumulated half a million dollars.
Then he went to railroading.
Mrs. Williams expects to carry
out her husband's policies, and has
able and trusted lieutenants to
help her. And those who know
her expect that, under her direct

Dear Miss Orey: lam It,

16 years old. She loves ma
and I love her. Would you
advise me to get married, as
I think 1 would like toT
Plsaee answer and advise me;
but remember that I love her
dearly.—The Weary One.
A.—l don't forget how dearly
you love each other, when I re
mind you that when the rent, gro
cer, butcher, light, gas, and num
erous other bills rome due, you
will be more weary than now;
and the creditors will forget ut
terly that young people love ho.
dearly. They have to meet their
bills in cold cash, and will expect
you to do the same.
You would much bet ter get out
and expend this extra energy on a
wood pile, than to spend it laying
up trouble for the girl and for
yourself. Suppose you begin to
lay la a supply of good sense, and
remain friends (without slash,
and made love) until you are Id
a position to support a wife.
Mad love Is like all other mad
things——dangerous. The law pro
vides that a mad dog may be shot,
and mad people (except the mad
love ones) be put where they will
do no harm. Yon have a mind
and an individuality all your own.
Cultivate it, as you would a rare
plant, with manly Instincts; for
tilire it with good sense; water It
with patience, and let Father Time
do the rest.
Dear Miss Grejr: lam 15,
pretty, and have many boy .
friends. I try ao hard to
treat them all the same, and
not show more liking for one
than another. Still they are
Jealous, and I have a very
hard time trying to manage
I like them nearly the same,
except one, whom I like bet
ter. He knows these boys
come to see me, and thinks I
do not care for him. I am
not sure he likes me, for (he
has fooled me several times;
unintentionally, he says. I
have tried to forget him, but
can't, ao Have about decided
to give him another chance.
I have thought of dropping
all other boy friends for him.
Should I? They all like me,
and I hate to. My parents
object to me having so many.
P. S.—Please answer soon,
as he is coming to see me in
a few days.
A.—No wonder you are tired.
You are attempting a Job far be
yond even an older person. Give
up trying to manage anyone.
Manage yourself. If the boys get
Jealous tell them you won't have
anything to do with any of them.
But don't give them up for any
particular one. A boy who thinks
no more of you than to "fool you"
is not worth your time.
I wish parents could realize
that in rases like this, as in some,
others, there is strength In num
bers. As you valuo your peace of
mini! don't imagine yourself in
love, but have a good time with
the boys and girls alike.
Dear Miss Grey: I am a
young lady of 16, and have
been going with a gentleman
for four year, and I like him
quite a bit. But there ara
lots of nice boys around here.

His opinions are to a degree form*

better for you that your boy com*

Dear Mlsa Orey: Will you

' young man of 18. Naturally,

I don't know what to do, I am

■ consisted in going to a hotel
with him, so I went, and he ■
got me Intoxicated.
Miss Grey, can I make him
marry me, for I can never i
bear the disgrace of having
an Illegitimate child. That's
why I can't go back home to
my folks. lam staying at my
sister's, at her home. Please,
y Miss Grey, answer this, for I .'
feel so down-hearted. My sis
ter Is not good, and wants me
to lead that kind of life.
This man promised to marry
me, and writes to me right •
along, but I am sure he has .
changed his mind, - for he
won't answer any questions.
He Is not in town at present.
Please don't turn this down
cold. 'FLORENCE. '
A.My dear child, first and
foremost I want to warn you not
to listen to your sister. Bear any
thing rather than that. Lot the
world scoff and sneer if It will
(the best jMrt will not), but be
the right kind of mother to your
child. ■• You have a duty to per
ietal.to It, whether or not the
father shirks his part of the re
•possibility.. You may, or may
not, have been to blame In the
matter. If you did not know any
better then, you do now, and are
responsible for the way you use
the knowledge gained. Use this
lesson to help you to solve others,
and don't mix up your life prob
lem, by making worse mistakes.
r■ Go to the juvenile detention
station and tell them I sent you,
and I know they will see that you
are well cared for.. ,'■; .v
