"Caleb hits Oven the only unmarried nan In town for so long, that they've been about discouraged.

Course, he never said so right out, but when I'd tell him, 'Brother, my rheumatism Is worse tonight, but If you really feel you ought take tlint silly extravagant crea ture home, why do It, Caletr would . answer, no Belinda,' every time." Miss Stebblns chuckled. "Knew he'd have to stand your hys tericus after he got heme If he took ' her," she said dryly. "You know, well's I do, Linda, that It's your weakness working, on his kind heart that holds him. "To bad, too," the friend added dry ly, "your brother would make a good t husband for some girl. But as I was ' sayln' they've all give up the Idea long ago. And now that this new dentist has rented Ball's house, -the girls Is beginnln' to set up an' take notice." "Anybody seen hlni7" asked Belinda Interested. "I see some good-looking man," her friend responded, "flttln' a key in the front door as I came along. Big and city-fled looktu.

Seems as If she was the hardest to discourage about Caleb." ' "Good-by," said Belinda. There was little news of the new dentist. Ball house was far away In It's walled-ln garden', and those who ven tured Inside did not seek out the gar rulous Miss Stebblns. The latest in formation that she could bring to her friend, was that the good-looking young man whom she had noticed en tering the Ball house, clipped the grass regularly as she passed, or might be seen evenings flying past In a closed motor car.

"WhereT" she querulously inquired. Caleb smiled. "To the dentist's," he said. Belinda regarded him with unaccus tomed sympathy, "Well," she exclaimed, "I reckon you can't hurry away from there.1 Her brother laughed. "I can't, and that's a fact," he said. Miss Stebblns gazed after him thoughtfully. "So Caleb's havln' his teeth fixed," she said. "Well, I wondered what's been makln' htm better lookln'. Sort ' perked up, or more Important or something. Seen him swlnglo' down street today smllln' right an' left, an' come to think his teeth did shine out whiter than I ever noticed. Mebbe h an' this dentist fellow will be friends, "Who," she asked presently, "did you say that pretty girt was that you saw drlvln' with the doctor T" "I didn't say," replied Miss Steb blns, "because I didn't know. But a woman I pointed the girl out to told me she'd come on from the city.' "Shouldn't think Caleb could get much work done to the dentist's, eve nings." "It's been the only time be could take," Belinda . responded. "They been busy at tha bank. lately." Down the road came a small closed car. In it sat, with strange new con fidence Caleb Carson, at his side and driving the car was a very pretty and apparently capable young woman.

"Belinda," he said in the gentle tone be kept for her, "I want yon to know Rosalie Dale. Rosalie has promised to become my wife. She is known to people here as Doctor Dale, the den tist." "Your wife," gasped Belinda. "The . dentist," exclaimed Miss Stebblns. "Then who," she asked quickly, was the young man I've seen driV' tng her about?" "That," answered the smiling Rosalie, "Is my student brother. He - drives out from college in the city to see me every day." Belinda found her voice. "Well, when yotf are off married," she crisply asked her brother, "whs do you calkilate is going to stay an' take care o' meT" Caleb glanced toward the openly-delighted Miss Stebblns. "I thought," he suggested, "that your friend might Be persuaded to stay here with you." "All right, Caleb," agreed Miss Steb blns, "I reckon' Belinda an' me can fight It out together."

The Future of the Railroads in the Light of Public Opinion, by C. H. Markham, President of the Illinois Central System. Editor's Note C. H. Markham is president of one of the greatest rail road systems in the world. He speaks with the voice of abfolute authority and knowledge. His opinions are ac cepted and hailed by railroad execu tives throughout the United States and because of his close touch to the executives of other railroads what he says may well be considered a voicing of the sentiment of the American rairoads as entertained by their gov erning heads. For twenty years the American pub lic has withheld sympathy for the problems of the railroad, problems that were vital to the welfare of the public. . For twenty years the American rail road has proven too often to be the football of peanut politics, the "hor rible example" for the pointing finger of demagogues and the sounding board for the more or less silver tongues of spellbinders. Constructive legislation has been hindered rather than helped by this attitude for in their desire to please a suspicious public 'even fair minded legislators have leaned so far toward repressive legislation that the con structive sort has been lost and en tangled in the maze of restrictive red tape of the former. A better service to the nation at large, a wider scone of production to the city and a lessening of cost to the farm producer who must move his nwuliint urult ' hmra TVkCultn1 lnvifl. ami if the railroads, often a3 unsoeintr as the public that frowned upon them, had been met half way in friendly spirit and problems that were real and I tangible been thrashed out together! rather than attacked from varying angles that neither solved the prob-1 em or tended toward the creation or mutual benefit. Both Sides Blamed. In thus placing blame upon the pub- under which their employes shall lie, I do not wish to give the impres- work; while to management is given sion that I believe raliway men al- the power of directing operations with ways have followed the blameless in these limitations. But I hold for course; in fact I hold them jointly, management a greater task, that of responsible for the mistakes of this I impressing upon public opinion the dark period. I believe they erred in) need of constructive policies, and of not pursuing at all times a policy or takinir the public into their complete confidence and telling the public frank ly what their problems were and what was being done, or should be done, to solve them. Railway men have large ly pursued a policy of reticence where their own actions were involved, seem ingly proceeding upon the theory that the public did not need their counsels. Recent railway history has proved that their attitude was wrong. But, regardless of where the blame is to be placed, the fact remains that the impression gained popularity that the railroads needed no protection. That, in fact, they were entitled to no protection, and that the public wel fare could best be served by attacking railway management, embarrassing it and putting every hindrance in its way. Every action undertaken by the railroads looking toward an improve ment in their capacity for rendering service was viciously attacked; every application for rates which would pro vide revenues sufficient for operating expenses, fixed charges and a return which would be attractive to the cap ital needed for financing extensions, improvements and betterments was bitterly fought; hampering legislation and restrictions were adopted, increase ing the cost of Tendering: transporta tion without increasing tlie capacity for it. Baiting the railroads became popular political spoil. The public grew to look upon the critic of the railroads as being always worthy of belief, and the defender of the rail- roads as being always in the wrong. Road in Future. My optimism for the future of the railway situntion is based upon a be lief that this deleterious period is passing. One finds it still cropping out in some quarters, but it is on the wane. We as a people seem to havn learned the lesson the last few years have taught us; namely, that the fu ture of our country is tied up with the well-being of transportation, and that the two must develop together. But, even though I entcrta!n an op timistic belief in the future of Ameri ca's second largest industry second only to agriculture I believe there still remains a great and pressing need for further public education on rail way questions. The public must be constantly reminded of what it has at stake in a solution of railway problems. Our efforts must not lag. One of the most important steps, I believe, in creating a wholesome pub lic sentiment which will assure prog ress in transportation is inspiring pub lic confidence in the men who stand at the head of America's ereat trans- portat ion systems. I have been in' railway work a great many years and I know the calibre of the men who hold positions of trust in the railway industry. I know them to be honest, conscientious men, trained in their quaint our patrons with railway prob calling, and I know their ambition Is, jems and the best methods of their that American railroads shall main- solution, and are asking their con tain their high rank among the trans-1 tructive criticism and suggestions, nnrtation mreneips of the world.

The prowth of puolic regulation has Placed the railroads literally at the mercy of the public. The railroads lc i.-hhumcm mi uSii Sun .....vim. agencies in the service they shall give, the rates they shall charge, the wages they shall pay and the conditions i outlining what those policies should be. Railway management is the trus tee of vast properties valued at nearly $19,000,000,000, and it would be derelict to duty if it did not exert its utrw.st effort toward construction as against destruction, toward progress as against retrogression. When we are ill we call upon men trained in the diagnosis and treatment of human ailments to effect a cure; when questions of jurisprudence arise we consult the best legal minds at our disposal to guide our actions; in railway matters men trained in that science should be our advisers. In the consideration of every public ques tion there ' always is proposed a ple thora of untried remedies, fake cures, quack panaceas; these have exercised, in the past, too great an influence pon public thought in railway matters. The first principle of railway prog ress is the necessity of placing at the disposal of the railroads a net income which will be sufficient to pay obliga tions and attract the savings of im provements and betterments may be carried out. The only source of this revenue is in the rates charged for transportation service. "What the traffic can bear" is the misnomer. The movement of traffic can be more se riously hampered by physical inabil ity to handle it than by rates which seem high as compared with those of another period. Rates, of course, should be so distributed as to allow for an easy flow of products from pro ducer to consumer, but the importance of protecting the railroads against rates which will impair service tut. easily lost sight of In our desire to protect other industry from ratet which might upset the scale of price , adjustments. Oppressive Regulations. Another important element in assur ing i-Ailwav roirress is the need lor curtailing oppressive regulations which increase the cost of producing trans portation without increasing the capac ity for producing transportation. In one of the states in which the Illinois ' Central operates bills were introduced and passed for passage in the recent session of the legislature which, if they had been passed and approved, would have increased the expend.tures of the railroads of that state more man tinnnonooo annually without in any way increasing their efficiency. Prac tienllv the same situation has existed in the regular sessions of every staU legislature of the forty-eight states foi years past. Fortunately for the rail- I roads and for the public, which must underwrite the railroads Dins, vnt measure to which I have referred fail ed, but that has not been the hlstor) of such legislation. Too often the ill advised burden has been placed. The cumulative etTect of this shortsighted ness has been to place the railroadi under great handicaps and to increaw unnecessarily the cost of transporta t,0r, linn nf the railroads lies in the establishment and maintenance of a wholesome public sentiment toward them. The public should bear in mind that whatever hurts the railroads hurt the public. Anything that affects rail way service and rates detrimentally is opposed to the public welfare, for any thing that increases the cost of trans portation without a comparable better ment of service has a bearing upon rates. The welfare of the railroads and the public welfare are so inter woven that it is impossible to separate them. That the public nas not ween Inrlinp.l to acceit this viewpoint is un fortunate; that the public is now more favorably minded toward the railroads nnirnrs well. On the Illinois Central System we are exerting our best efforts ito c eration of the public served by our line in a degree hitherto unnnown. We have passed through tryMfT times and our lesson in railway ifa has been a hard one. If j we have profited by it, it Is well. I believe we nave.
