J - 13 Japan, Which Has Just Cele brated the 50th Anniversary of the Inauguration of Hirst Railroad, Now Num bers 160,000 Railroad Men in Us Population. By Roger Datchclder. "Tho celebration of tho fiftieth an niversary of tho Inauguration of rail way servlco In Japan took place Oct. 14, and was attended by tho Crown Prince, who read tho Imperial mea tuses In behalf of the Emperor," said Taro Olta, traffic manager of the Japaneso Government Railways, at the BUtmorc. "Four Princes of the blood, and about 2,300 Invited guests took part In the ceremonies In front of the Toltlo station. Premier Hara re viewed briefly tho development of tho railways- since the inauguration of the service, and laid stress on the necessity of perfecting tho system. Japan's first railway, between Toklo and Yokohama, was complctod in 1872. Of course Japan had no en gineers or funds for building it, but tiritisli engineers and capital were forthcoming. From a mileage of Eighteen miles at that time we now have reached a total of 8,500 miles. We have 160,000 railroad men." hOW BURK BURNETT GOT ITS NAME. Down m Texas they l.ku to peipetu ate tho fame of a prominent citizen by naming a town after him, a practice not always favorably regarded by tile postal authorities at Washington. Such, at any rate, was the situation m rLgard to Burlc Burnett, whoso name Is now identified with one of the most productive oil fields in the State, according to Joseph A. Kemy of Wichita Falls, who is at the Waldorf-Astoria. Mr. Kemp and his associates, who laid out a town m a new oil field and built a railroad into it, wanted to name the place after the original owner of most of thu property, and they submitted the name of Buru Burnett to the Post Office Depart ment. Tho name was rejected as being too long. About that iinu President Ftoos' -vclt arrived in The district on a wolf huntlns expedition. The citizens stopped at nothing i mako his trip a memorable one, even to Importing a cw wolves from another county. So delighted was tho President with his -lsit and the hospitality of Ui Toxans that when he heard of the Rurk Burnett .n.itter he promised i ste what ho could do ib.mt It. Later, In Washington, when a vlsr Ing delegation invited him to give a name to tho new town the President promptly elioso Uurk Uurnctt. Under such conditions the po3tal authorities had to accept it, anrl t Hal's how Texaa got its Uurk Uurnet:. i HOTELS VERSUS TENTS. Hotels are keeninc Dace with au- tomobllo camps," said V. S. Warrlner, publisher of The American Qreetcr, in Denver, who la at tho Belmont. "Outside the novelty of tent-pltchlng under the stars, we have rot suffered greatly. Tho Overland Camp grounds In Denver, however, had a registra tion of 39,8.i4 campers In 1921, against 29,024 in 1920. "Tho rail business has not been all that tho hotels might have anticipat ed, although tho travel tab kept by the Denver Tourist Bureau showed an Increase of 20,000 inquiries made, over Its counter In tho station." NORTH CAROLINA'S NEW ROAD PROJECT, "The entire State of North Caro lina Is engaged In a great project of ffood road building." declares Carl J Bclllott, of Greensboro, X. C, who Is at tho Astor. "Wo are building a system of auto mobile roads connecting nil tho county seats in the State, thereby opening up tho picturesque Blue Ilidgo Mountain country which has hitherto been Inaccessible to tour ists. In tho springtime there is no more beautiful sight than the moun tains, covered with laurel, rhododen drons, and wild flowers for which the section Is famous." Mr. Belliett said that his hotnu town was reputed to be tho head quarters of the Ku Klux Klan. It was there, ho said, that a high offi cial gave an interview to a locil paper, Jn which, he denounced the or-, ganizatlon on tho ground that it no longer had the noble principles of Civil War days. "As a matter pf fart, no one u that section of the country hoa ever fipokcn to mo about tho Klan, and Influential pcoplo do not seem to bo Interested in It. Wo have never heard of raids, nlght-rldlng, or other demonstrations." OUR CHICKEN DEPARTMENT. l-'ort Myers, FIa has again shown Its mettle by Inviting the poultry spnclallst of tho University of Flor ida to visit the town and adviso nl! the raisers of chickens on poultry topics, according to William J. Cree voy of that town, who is at tho Bllt .more. "Hero are somo of the slogans with which we are now well acquainted," ho said. (Commuters, r-iin s "J,Th0,busy Ilcn is th laying hen'.' 'The hen with capacity and vigor should bo carefully guarded,' 'Cull your flocks as many times as pos sible during the year.'" . FARTHEST FROM HOME.
