The best Motorman and Conductors are not those
that make themselves agreeable to the public. We
expect them, of course, to be polite and considerate
within the limits of their duties, but above all things
we expect them to guard wifh jealous care the lives
and safety of our passengers.
Their keenest attention to every detail of duty is necessary to the safety and
efficiency of the service. Their eyes and ears must be on the alert at all times,
and even at their best it is not always possible to avoid an accident.
The GOOD FELLOW who persists in talking to our Motorrhen and
Conductors on the weather, politics or baseball, is not only robbing us of the
efficiency of our men, but he is endangering the lives of the other passengers.
Remember, that a GOOD MOTORMAN is a SILENT MOTORMAN
and a good Conductor is one who is keenly watching every movement of the
passengers, the car and the traffic upon the streets.

Ceylon was the guest of a dockyard
official at Trincorualee.
"The dinner was excellent." he says,
"but when it was about half over I
was startled by bearing the wife of
my host tell the native servant to
place a bowl of milk on a deer skin
near her chair.
"Although she spoke as calmly as if
giving an ordinary order. I knew at
once there was a snake somewhere in
the room, for they prefer milk to any
thing else. As a hasty movement
might have meant certain death, we
all sat like statues: but. for all that,
my eyes were iuspeeting every nook

ble. However, it was not until the
milk was placed on the deer skin that
the snake appeared. And then, to our
amazement, a large cobra uncoiled
itself from my hostess ankle and
glided toward the bowl. when, of
course, it was immediately killed.

woman, though she fainted when the
