HELL ROARING TOM
REFORMSRAILROAD
Quits Swearing and All Em
ployes of W. and A.
Do the Same.
THEY LAUGHED AT FIRST.
FELLOW EMPLOYES OF MOST
PROFANE MAN IN ATLANTA
SNEERED, BUT THEIR MOCK
ERY WAS HOLLOW.
Atlanta, Ga., May So . The statement
Is eerlously made that there is not a
locomotive engineer, a fireman, a
switchman, a conductor, a brakeman,
a train dispatcher, a station agent, a
telegraph operator, an engine wiper or
a trackman on the Western & Atlan
tic railroad who swears. The state
ment is made, too, that none of them
rises intoxicating liquors. Maybe you
think the Western & Atlantic is a jerk
water road. Not much. Its main line
extends from here to Chattanooga.
Until two years ago, nearly everybody
on the road swore when the occasion
warranted strong language, but that
was before "Hell Roaring Tom" Har
rison reformed, and, in reforming, re
formed the whole railroad. There
never was a man employed by the W.
& A. who was a match for Tom Har
rison when it came to profanity. He
was pointed out to visitors as the
most profane man in Atlanta. It was
a boast that he could drive a locomo
tive at top speed and turn loose a dif
ferent cuss word for every three feet
of the road between here and Chatta
nooga. And no one was prouder of
his accomplishment than was "Hell
Roaring Tom."
One day there came into the yards
of the Western Atantic a stranger
who stood by while Harrison and a
group of fellow railroaders had a dis
cussion. In the course of the discus
sion "Hell Roaring Tom" turned loose
one of the strings of profanity for
which he was famous. The stranger
made no sign, but that night he knock
ed at the door of Harrison's home and
asked the privilege of a few minutes'
conversation with him.
"I wish 1 knew his name," says Har
rison now in telling the story of the
isit, "but I did not ask it. It was
shortly after supper that he came in.
He did not leave until after breakfast
then next morning. He talked to me
all the night. Then he went away,
and I never have seen or heard of him
since, but he changed the whole
course of my life. He told me that he
had been a great criminal, and that he
was in prison when his soul was awak
ened by a casual reading of the bible.
No clergyman had anything to do
with it.
"He did not preach to me. He just
talked to me as man to man, as broth
er to brother. And there we sat the
whole night long, with no thought of
anything but this one of saving my
soul. After breakfast we shook
hands, and he passed out of my life;
but from the minute he came into ray
house up to the present moment I have
not used a profane word. I have
changed in thought, in action and in
character.
And if the stranger wrought a great
change in "Tom" Harrison, so "Tom"
Harrison has wrought a great change
in the employes of the Western & At
lantic. Of course, ther? was a mighty
swell of merriment wheu the word
went forth that "Hell Roaring Tom"
had stopped swearing. But somehow
the mirth seemed hollow and forced in
the presence of Harrison, for instead
of being reckless, devil-may-care and
loud, he changed in a day to an earn
est, serious, patient and kindly man.
who in voice and manner was as dif
ferent from the Harrison of old as it
seemed possible to be. Then, when he
was asked what had caused the re
markable change, he told his story,
told it in the plain, simple language of
trade; will equip shop for you or
furnish positions, few weeks com

wTNTFrDGTri to do general house
the man whose whole heart is in the
telling. And after he told the story
no one felt like using profanity in his
presence.
Xhere are some men v;ho have an
unusual gift in influencing the
thoughts of others. Harrison has this
gift to a decided degree, and when he
declared that swearing was only a hab
it, a foul habit, the offensiveness of
which is not realized at all by 05 per
cent of those who indulge in it, others
got to saying the same thing.
This had an excellent effect. Within
a few months if a man used profanity
about the yards of the W. & A. he wa3
looked at with amazement. Along the
whole line the same spirit spread. The
W. & A. is reformed, reformed by a
man who had no training in the evan
gelistic field. Harrison is "Hell
Roaring Tom" no longer. He is
"Tom" today to everyone. Boys, girls,
men and women never think of calling
him Thomas or Mr. Harrison. He
still runs his engine. Occasionally at
night he goes to the Y. M. C. A. and
delivers a short talk. The Y. M. C. A.
people say he is one of the best work
ers for good they ever have had in At
lanta. He goes to church, too, shirk
ing nothing, not even to carrying the
collection plate.
"It's strange, isn't it?" said Harri
son, to a friend the other day. "Only
two years ago I thought all those who
professed religion were fakers. I
did'nt believe that any man or woman
was good. And now it is difficult for
me to understand how I could have
been so blind."

T GALL CRAZY"
This Is Not a Mere Term But a
Possible Stern Reality for
Lovers of Game.
A DOCTOR'S STATEMENT.
Philadelphia, May 30. It will not he
safe after this to say you are "just
crazy over football" if. on. trial for
your liberty, you are obliged to face a
board of alienists. The American
Neurological Association, in thirty
fourth annual meeting assembled at
the College of Physicians, heard from
Dr. Charles K. Mills and Dr. Charles
H. Frazier, of the University of Penn
sylvania, how a woman, whose en
thusiasm for football became an actual
mania, had finally become irresponsi
ble at one of the games, and upon be
ing operated upon in the University
hospital, was found to have a cyst in
her brain three inches in diameter.
"S'.ie couldn't get enough of foot
ball," said Dr. Mills, reviewing the his
tory of the case, "and she went at ev
ery opportunity. She attended a game
here; then she went to New York for
more. She went to the Harvard-Indian
game in Boston and rushed back
here again for the Army and Navy
game. And every time she went to a
football game she would become very
nauseated and dizzy and would be
come partially disorientated. She was
so ill at the last. Army and Navy
game that she attempted to leave the
stand and in heading for the aisles ran
into a post. Her symptoms were left
lateral homonymous hemianopsia and
hemiataxia, especially marked in her
upper extremities."
The general depression noticeable
in some quarters at the close cf the
football season was particularly mark
ed in this victim of the new "demen
tia." After her operation her recovery
was rapid and virtually complete, so
far as can be positively ascertained
before the beginning of the next foot
ball season.
As this is the only case of its kind
yet run to cover by the proper author
ities, too general deductions cannot he
made from it. But it is possible that
suspicious cases will be rigorously
watched when the seasons opens and
persons finding themselves victims of
an uncontrollable fondness for foot
hall may be subjected to examinations
in the interest of science.

HIGSEN MAY BE
J
Probable He Will Be Placed to
Lead the Independence
League.
HE IS AN INDIANA MAN.
THE MAN HAS SERVED THE
LEAGUE IN THE STATE OF MAS
SACHUSETTS IN SEVERAL PO
LITICAL CAMPAIGNS.
Springfield, Mass., May P0. With
all the mystery that covers the selec
tion of a presidential candidate of the
Independence national party there is
persistent mention of the name of
Thomas L,. Hisgen that seems to mark
him as the man for the honor.
Who is Hisgen? He is in charge of
an independent oil company at West
Springfield, just across the river from
this thriving city. It is a branch of
an oil company and the largest axle
grease factory in the world, located at
Albany, and Hisgen is president of the
whole business.
He has done big things. Starting
from nothing he has in twenty years
developed a great industrial concern,
made his fortune, and whipped the
Standard Oil Co.
Hisgen was born at Petersburg, Ind.
in 1858. When he was sixteen years
old he removed with his parents and
ten other children of the family to a
farm near Albany, N. Y. In a few
years he and three of his brothers se
cured employment as clerks in a
clothing store. They were successful.
It then occurred to Thomas that if
they could sell clothing for another
man probably they could sell things
for themselves, preferably something
of their own manufacture.
Their father, who was Something
of a chemist, had a formula for mak
ing axle grease. Two of the boys
made it and the other two acted as
selling agents. That was in 1888. Ten
years later, the Standard Oil Co.,
which also sells axle grease, offered
them $600,000 for their business.
They declined the offer, and the
Standard by the use of its character
istic methods, set out to ruin them.
Most dealers who handle axle grease
also sell kerosene. The Standard no
tified these dealers that unless they
quit dealing with the Hisgen brothers
they would get no oil. The Hisgens
met this emergency by going into the
oil business. They have met the
Standard at every point, however,
have beaten it and have increased
their business.
Hisgen was nominated for state aud
itor on the independence league ticket
two years ago and received 150,000
votes. As league candidate for gov
ernor last year he polled 75,000 votes
which was 6,000 more than were cast
for the regular democratic nominee.
"I feel confident," he says, "that the
independence national party will poll
3.000,000 votes this year and that in
1912 it will sweep the country."
He wedded in 1900, Miss Barbara
Fox of Albany. They have three
children. Tom, junior, aged 6, Cather
i ine, 5, and Henrietta, 2 years old.

Washington, D. C, May SO The ir

nothing more than female hooligans.
These people amused themselves and
disturbed others by standing on chairs
and commenting audibly on other
women's dresses and pricing the ma
terials. We had a policeman to re
strain the curiosity of children outside
but I thought we might trust the re
spectability of Ieystoustone for de
cent behavior inside the church."
An incandescent lamp in its green
shade, will when turned upwar toward
the ceiling, spread a soft and pleas
antly diffused light plenty strong
enough for a room where no one is
reading. When the lamp is so used
no shadows are cast.
