HOW A RAILROAD CAN BE RUN Persons who are grappling with the great "safety first" problem among industries in this state might with profit study the methods of the Cumberland Valley Railroad whose president, Mr. M. C. Ken nedy, of Chambersburg, issued a remarkable state ment yesterday showing how effectively both human life and property were conserved on his road during 1914. Not only does President Ken liay that no passenger or employe was killed twelve months just closed, but he makes the >re remarkable statements that no passenger >d an injury of any kind and that but a single ye suffered a broken bone in the whole year, ver the wreck crew was called out only times in that period and on none of these occasions was the trouble more serious than mping of freight cars on a siding, ions who may get the wrong idea that the Cumberland Valley is not an important railroad 'and attribute its escape from accidents of a serious nature to such a mistaken impression should be told that the Cumberland Valley's main line, be tween Harrisburg and Winchester, Va., is some thing more than 100 miles long; it carried eight and a quarter million tons of freight and two million passengers in 1914, and it has 2,100 employes. The Cumberland Valley is a branch of the Pennsylvania system and its roadbed and equipment are fully as good as those of the Pennsylvania's main lines. Indeed President Kennedy, with pardonable pride, declares the Cumberland Valley is the "best and safest" road in the United States. It is certain it holds the record in Pennsylvania for 1914, even over the Pennsylvania Kailroad, which has just 'issued a similar statement containing some remark able facts about the scarcity of accidents on its main lines. The facts brought out about the Cumberland Valley convince one that there must be something about the way that railroad is conducted that is responsible for its claim of being the "safest road in the United States." The report of John P. Dohoney, investigator of accidents of the Public Service Commission of Pennsylvania, recently issued for the fiscal year ended June 30, 1914-, shows that in that period 10,190 persons were injured on all the steam railroads *in this state, of whom 991 were killed. Compare this with the record of none killed and one injured by the Cumberland Valley in the year ended December 31, 1f)14! Has the Cumberland Valley merely been ' playing in good luck?" We don't think so. Perhaps if the "safety first'' folks were to get a few hints from the Cumberland Valley manage ment it would help them a lot in their noble work. TOUCH OF HUMOR FROM THE HAGUE Jn The Hague, city of peaceful Holland and home of the Palace of Peace, residents are suffering from consequences of the war despite their neutrality and non-participation in the conflict, yet through it all they are not without a sense of humor. They realize how useless at this time is the Palace of Peace and, surrounded as they are by troops of warring nations, they are doubtless thinking how manifestly fruitless have been endeavors made in recent years to have the difficulties of nations ad justed without resort to arms. Viewing this matter in the lighter vein, they have ventured to circulate HARRISBURG STAR-INDEPENDENT, SATURDAY EVENING, JANUARY 2. 1915. a little joke concerning it, at the expense of the well-meaning advocates of peace. "For sale or for rent," reads an inscription below photographs of the Palace of Peace," uwing to bankruptcy. May be used as a barracks or for moving picture show. Water and gas on every floor. Apply to the angels of peace." As in all true humor, there is a meaning below the surface in that brief statement. Hollanders cannot consider that the Palace of Peace, now standing in The Hague, gloomy and deserted, is any longer serving its purpose, but rather that it is mocking them and the civilized world by its very existence. BEQUEATHING BRAINS TO SCIENCE Announcement made yesterday at the closing session of the convention of the country's scientists in Philadelphia, that three distinguished members of the organization intended to bequeath their brains to the cause of scientific research, may not have a pleasant sound, yet it is greeted with appro bation by all who would have mankind make fur ther progress in its proper study, man. The scientists who have offered their dead brains in the same cause to which they have devoted the living tissues, realize that research work is ham pered in laboratories through lack of suitable ob jects with which to carry on investigations, and they are willing to have parts of their own physical selves used as working material by their successors in scientific research. Examinations are made from time to time of the brains of criminals and of common tramps, and although they have resulted in occasional revela tions, they have of course provided no opportuni ties for the studying of brains of men of high intel lects. Comparisons therefore between the brains of illiterate and of scholarly persons cannot be suc cessfully drawn, and it is to make such comparisons possible that men, devoted to the cause of science, are offering to leave their brains, when they die, exposed to posterity. When a great intellect passes from the world it may leave humanity richer by reason of records which it has made during the period of its activity, but it cannot itself be passed on to living human beings. Only the physical brain tissues remain. Yet as bequests to science, they may in future be the means of unfolding great truths of psychology. Now that the water rates have been reduced, riding on the water wagon ought to be more popular til an ever. Who is there to dispute President Kennedy's claim that the Cumberland Valley is the safest and best railroad in United States? Superintendent Pomeroy, of the Printing Department, thinks the State can get along without "pink bills" in the Legislature. Couldn't we get along better also without some of the white onesf Speaking of harmony, there isn't much sign of it in the Republican speakership fight. It looks as though Governor elect Brumbaugh is going to put a little saud in the machine that the leaders have at times made to run so smoothly. The Mummers' Association is to be congratulated on the excellence of the New Year's fantastic parade. It was a success beyond all question and provided holiday fun for more persons than anything that has been arranged for New Year's day in the history of the city. The costumes, floats and other features were original and funny and the whole undertaking was well managed. Let's have a mum mers' parade every year! TOLD IN LIGHTER VEIN AN ENFORCED PURCHASE A dandy went into a photographer's in a country town to get his photograph taken. When the job was "done he refused to pay on the ground that the picture was not like him. "All right," *aid Pat, "leave it there." Next day he was passing the place and saw his picture in a showcase and under it were the words in big letters: "The ugliest mug in town." He rushed in and abused Pat. "But, me man," said Pat, "yesterday ye said the picture was not like you, so you have no reason to complain." Pat sold him the photograph.—Pittsburgh Chronicle. POOR HENPECK! A couple of Pennsylvania farmers, a man and wife, drove from their farm to the nearest railway. The man, small and scared, sat meekly beside his wife, who filled two thirds of the seat and only spoke to command. Finally the station was reached. The woman bustled in, settled her numerous bundles and sat down. Looking over her goods and chattels she suddenly missed something, and. lookiug about, discovered that her husband had remained outside on the platform. She rapped sharply on the window. "Hen!" she called, pointing to the bench beside her. "Come set!"— Exchange. KEPT HIM BUSY A miyj in addressing a Baltimore gathering of children rather confused himself, to the merriment of the young sters. He was a member of the board of trustees of the school before which he was speaking. "My young friends." said the speaker, "let me urge upon you the necessity of not only reading good books, but also of owning them, so that you may have access to them at all times. Why, when I was a young man I used frequently to work all night to earn money to buy books and then get up before daylight to read them."—Exchange. IN THE WRONG PLACE William Dean Howells, at a dinner in Boston, said of modern American letters: "The average popular novel shows, on the novelist's part, an ignorance of his trade which reminds me of a New Eng land clerk. In a New England village I entered the .Main street department store one afternoon, and said to the clerk at the book counter: " 'Let me have, please, the 'Letters of Charles Lamb.' " " 'Postoffice right across the street, MT. Lamb,' said the clerk, with a polite, brisk smile."—Detroit Free Press.

[Tongue-End Topics King George Invited the Kaiser Plans of_King George for a great celebration of the seventieth birthday of his mother. Queen Alexandra, were entirely set aside this .year, on account at the war and she spent the day quiet ly. Among the guests who had been invited to attend the festivities planned were Emperor William and the Em press. In connection with the queen's birthifav it was recalled by many that the marriage of Queen Alexandra was the first ceremonial function which the Emperor ever was allowed to attend. He theu was a small and fidgety boy of four years. During the ceremony, his uncles, the Dukes of Oonnaugh't and Edinburgh, posted themselves on either side of him to keep him quiet. When presently he began to shuffle his feet, the two uncles administered a warning nudge. Whereupon, according to Bishop Wilberforce, who witnessed the inci dent, the boy knelt down and bit both uncles in the calves "so savagely that they had much ado to keep from cry ing out." * » * War Changed Birthday Flans It has been Her Majesty's custom for many years to spend her birthday at her Sandringham home surrounded by her family. Usually, too, her daughter, Queen Maud of Norway, has extended her English visit until after the birthUay, but this year owing to the state of public affairs, Queen Alex andra remained at Morlborough House. London, for the day, while Queen Maud's customary visit was abandoned entirely. Members of the Royal fam ily and a Danish diplomat were the ouly persons she received. * . * Queen Alexandra Still Active Queen Alexandra still is active in public affairs. She is a firm believer in outdoor exercise and whenever the morning weather is favorable she may be seen strolling through her gardens with her favorite dogs. She makes it a rule to go through her voluminous correspoudenee in person and she con tinues to exercise the closest personal control over her household and its ex penses. She passes several hours in this business every day, going through the accounts as they reach General Sir Digliton Probyn, Y. C., the Comptroller of her household. She is the head of the Red Cross Society, of England, and has devoted much time to the raising of funds for the support of this work. She follows the labors of the nurses at the front with the closest interest, and sent each of them at Christmas a small personal gift. Her Birthday December 1, 1844 Since the start of the war Queen Al exandra has followed the course of events closely. She is kept fully in formed of all that is transpiring on hand and sea. The King communicates in person any message he thinks might prove a shock to her if communicated by any one else. A recent instance of this was the death of Lord Roberts. Queen Alexandra was bom on Decem ber 1, 1844, the eldest daughter of the late King Christian IX, of Denmark. Slio married the late King Edward VII while he was Prince of Wales, on March 10, 18153, and has been a widow since May 6, 1910. 4 » # Cross Bestowed Upon Woman The Emperor, of Austria, in encour agement of the efforts made by the women in behalf of the army, has be stowed the Cross of the Francis Joseph Order for the first time upon a wom an, the wife of an Austrian lieutenant who displayed conspicuous bravery by her husband's sidle in the trenches.

BABIES IN ASHANTI They Go Through a Trying Ordeal in Getting a Name When children are born in Ashanti they ate at once rubbed all over with a mixture of oil an I red ocher, this be ing repeated every two days. Their mouths are washed with a fiery con coction in which red pepper is the main ingredient, and a crier goes through the town proclaiming the new arrival and claiming for it a name and a place among the living. Some one else in a distant part of the village acknowledges the fact and promises, on the part of the people, that the newiborr babe shall be received into the community. The townspeople then assemble in the streets, and the baby is brought out and exposed to view. Next a basin of water is provided, and the head man, or chief of the town, sprinkles water upon it, leaving it a name and invoking a blessing upon it, such as, for instance, that it may have health, grow up to manhood or woman hood, have a numerous progeny and possess riches. Most of those present follow the ex ample of the head man, and the poor child is thoroughly drenched before the ceremony is ended. Every one who participates in the ceremony pledges himself to be a friend to the child.— London Standard. TIL OF HI SET 11.

Her technic and the won derful understanding which sho brings to the most subtle moods of the com posers whom she interprets makes her poipular. She possesses a nerve, a strength, a virility of style, which, shaded bv her feminine warmth of feeling, leave* nothing to be desired. The passion of Liszt, tho strength and gramdeur of Bach and Beethoven, are rendered with the same sureness of expression as tho tender poetry of Schumann or Ohopin. Tho rapidity with which this artist changes from one mood to another, the motional force which is displayed with equal skill in the most ponderous pas sages or the most delicate phrasing, is remarkable both for its brilliancy and rich emotional feeling.
