WORK SO RESPONSIBLE AND RISKY
IS YET FASCINATING.
The Many Moving Trains Voder a Train
Dispatcher's Charge lepTl For Safety
Vpon His Comprehensive Mental "I'lc
tnre" Some Examples.
"I tell you, boya, it's the most fascinat
ing work I ever tried, and I've been rail
roading for 25 years and taken a turn at
everything from brakeman to division su
perintendent." Soppokethe train dispatcher to a com
pany of railroad men and the reporter.
"Why," said the latter, "I thought train
dispatching was too risky to make the
sense of responsibility comfortable?"
"It may be partly that at bottom, but
train dispatcher to do his wrk must lose
sight of the awful consequences that might
follow a mistake. If he didn't, he'd lose
hjs nerve every time. Why, every train, or
single locomotive for that matter, of the
hundreds whose movements he directs
every day is fraught with irroater possi
bilities of disaster, involving life or prop
erty, or both, than any man can contem
plate and not want to desert the responsi
"But how can a man put out of his mind
altogether those possibilities, so that he's
mt to move trains without hesitation and
not get rattled?" asked the reporter.
"Well, it's the same answer to tha as in
other cases where nerve is needed. It's the
confidence that comes with experience. If
jou've run trains without accident, why
you feel you can do it again."
"When the danger of catastrophe is lost
sight of," resumed t he dispatcher, "the fas
cination comes in in the complexity of the
problems which present themselves every
.hour. Jlow to get the most trains through
in opposite directions, giving each its
"right over the others, is the sum of a dis
patcher's task. It isn't enough to get each
train as it cornea along through safely:
you've got to deal with scores at the same
time, look ahead and keep them moving."
"You ought to be a good chess player,"
suggested the reporter.
"I do pretend to play a pretty 5-tir game,
and you're ri"ht. The same faculties that
tell in chess come into play in train dispat'h
iog, but wit a trains you're dealing with
men' thHt are. when under way, out of
your control for a time, so that the difficul
ties of the game are in one way increased
by the introduction of moving pieces, ski.
while you do 1't vividly realize the possible
consequences of your move on the steel
ruiea ooara. me aim consciousness you
have of responsibility makes the railroad
game a big one.
And it s something only the human
mind can grapple with. I've seen median
ical contrivances used to follow on a board
the movements of trains, with the idea of
checking the liability of the dispatcher to
"drop a stitch' and allowing him to think of
something else without losing the situa
tion. But, after all, it's the man who must
h depended on to know that the board is
, ngfrt. If it gets set wrong, the board of
pegs only embarrasses him in trying to re
cover his 'picture,' as the bovs call it.
"A train dispatcher has got to have a
menwu -picture or the relative positions at
any given time of all the trains under his
nanus. If that s gone, God help him!
"3JlLvS a mn stand between
two telegraph operators dictating orders to
one and the other as fast as he could talk
many a time without anything between his
messages and disasters, except the chang

runs. Suppose it is a double track, with a
few miles cf single track U-t ween and sid

double track road of CO miles. Regular
trains passed a given point every four min
utes. In this section was 10 miles of single
track a 'hogback' that is, a grade both
ways to its middle, requiring two locomo
tives to pull t rains up t o the highest poirt,
when, they left either of the double tracks.
".With the regular traffic on the latter,
and tne locomotives coming back from the
hogback, twice the ordinary number, and
just as likely to cause luss to property, if
not to life or trains, it was quick work.
You must take in, too, the presence of trains
running under social orders to put them

AN OLD TIME PROSPECTOR.
Perhaps an Eskimo Who Was Drlvea South
Sixty Thousand Tears Ago.
Texas has had its old settlers stretching
away back toward the dawn of creation, the
hems of whose garments tradition does not
reach, but whose careers were probably as
full of wild adventure as that of any Indian
or Mexican fighter that has ever adorned
the pages of Texas history. One of those
old settlers was found about 10 days ago by
D. D. Pittman while digging a well on his
lot on Thomas avenue, Dallas.
At a depth of 32 feet below th'e surf ace,
and ufter blasting through a stratum of
limestone four feet thick, Mr. Pittman
found a human skeleton in the postter
tiary sands The skull, finger bones and
other thin bones, on being brought in con
tact with the atmosphere, crumbled away
to imwder, but some of the larger bones
stood the test of atmospheric exposure,
and. lcyonl the crumbling of the articular
surfaces, tire in a good state of preservation.
This is iuiieul;;rly the case with the thigh
It in all other respects resembles the
thigh bone of modern man except as to its
anatomical neck, which Dr. Armstrong,
the city health officer, says is not shaped
like that of the present race. However, as
nature adapts itself to its surroundings, it
is to be expected that there was some dif
ference between the fore and aft moveme it
of the thigh bone that was in use 60,000
years ago and that of the present time.
The bone, while as thick and heavy as
that of a man of medium height, is only 11
inches long, which would represent a man
about 4 feet 2 inches high, or about the
stature of an Kskimo, and taken in connec
tion with the geological formations, those
of the second glacial period, in which the
skeleton was tounu tnere is hardly any
doubt but that it belongs to the Eskimo
The cold of that period destroyed the
northern tribes, except such of their hardi
est members as escaped south. That there
was a southward movement of Eskimos in
those days is as certain as that there is now
a winter movement of tramps from the
rigorous climate of Iowa and Nebraska to
the more genial one of Texas. Doubtless
this poor Eskimo lived between the paleo
lithicand neolithic periods the ages of un
polished and polished stone weapons, mark
ing the hiatus in the Bible between Adam
and the period where connected history be
hat a wonderful story could this skele
ton tell if it had a tongue! But hero the
question suggests itself. Had this Eskimo
yet reachcj the origin of language? Did he
say "yes," or did he merely nod his head?
How did he string the echoes of his
thoughts together? Unfortunately the
skull, that part of it most valuable to
science, has crumbled away. Galveston

MISERIES OF LITE.
Where Soldiers Are Shot.
In the work on gunshot wounds. Dr.
Ludwig Brandt gives some interesting sta
tistic about the Franco-Prussian war in
1ST0-1. The number of officers and men of
all ranks belonging to the German armies
who were wounded during the war amount
ed to the immense total of 11G.S21. Of these
90,566 survived, 11, 023 died in hospital, and
6,223 died on the field of battle.
The wounds of those who were under
hospital treatment, including the wounds
of those who died in hospital, were thus
distributed: Wounds of the bead, 11,041; of
the neck. 1,922; of the chest and back, Mr
495; abdomen. 4,553; upper extremities, 8?,
S14, and of the lower extremities, 43,052,
while in 3,721 instances the situations of
the wounds have not been recorded.
A noticeable fact is the unusually large
proportion of wounds of the head, which
nearly equal those of the chest and back to
gether and approach three times the num
ber of those of the abdomen. The n ember
given (11,041), however, includes 2,130 inju
ries to the face.
The wounds by rifle bullets more than
double the number of those caused by artil
lery projectiles, but the information in this
respect is not of much value, as out of 2,030'
gunshot wounds of the face in no fewer
than 1,308 instances the particular project
tiles by which the wounds were caused have
nAt been recorded. British Medical Journal.
Curious Statistic- or the mind.
The people of Russia are more terribly
afflicted with the infirmity of blindness
than any other race, sect or nation on the
globe, the proportion leing21 to every 10,
000 of population. In 1S6G there was an
official census taken of the blind of Europe
These statistics show a remarkable state of
affairs, especially in European Russia, the
Caucasus and Poland. In the countries
named there was a total of 1S9,ST2 person
who were entirely blind. The whole of the
remainder of Europe (and mind this in
cludes the thickly populated countries of
Germany, 1 ..r.ce, t"inin, Holland, Bel
gium, Great iMitnin. etc.) only has a blind
population numbering 1SS.812, while the
three Americas, North, Central and South,
with their islands, have less than 23,000 per
sons who are totally bereft of sight.
In the Caucasus the women, especially
those of country districts, are more liable

take about 15 minutes, the other perhaps
an hour and a half. It was late to lo-

through my other train went all right. 1
