Railroad employes have recently been ad
vised by a state commissioner of transporta
tion to wear gaiters rather buttoned or tied
shoes iu order that they may more easily ex
tricate themselves from wrecks as well as
from switch frogs. It is appearently a mat
ter of no great consequence , but after all the
advice is sound. A fireman who went down
an embankment with his engine in the recent
Westfield wreck found himself caught and
his foot held against the fire box as if by a
vice. He had on an elastic shoe and manag
ed to extricate himself , whereas he would
have been slowly roasted to death had his
foot gear been of any other pattern. It would
not be a bad idea for railroad men to form
the habit of wearing gaiters. Like a revolver
ver in Texas that kind of shoe may not be
needed very often , but when it is wanted it
is "wanted mighty bad. "
