A NOTION THAT MAY SPREAD.
A PICTURE of wife, sweethesrt or baby is an admirable thing
MJk in its place, but that place is uot on the glass of aa engineer
ess driver's watch.
Such is the edict of tho Illinois Central Railroad, and the some
applies to brakemen and conductors. Thero is no record of any train
having left the track or ploughed through another while tho engineer
was dreaming over the likeness of his sweetheart, nor has any con
ductor been known to miss a car full of fares while contemplating the
features of his first-born. Nevertheless, these things might happen.
The railroad officials hnve decided that photographs in watch
cases interfere with efficiency. Is this idea to stay confined to o
profession involving responsibility for human life, or will the mer
chent and the office boss presently claim the right to inspect watch
covers on the ground Hint they are entitled to a more thorough sus
pension of sentiment on the part of employees during business hours?
