Ask Any Doughboy Who
Was "Over There"
and he will" tell you that American railroads are
the best in the world.
He saw the foreign roads —in England and
France, the best in Europe — and in other Con
tinental countries — and he knows.
The part railroads have played in the develop
* 'merit of the United States is beyond measure.
American railroads have achieved high stand
ards of public service by far-sighted and courage
ous Investment of capital, and by the constant
striving of managers and men for rewards for work
well done.
We have the best railroads in the world — we
must continue to have the best.
But they must grow.
To the $20,000,000,000 now invested in our .
railroads, there will have to be added in the next :.
few years, to keep pace with the nation's business,
billions more for additional tracks, stations and
terminals, cars and engines, electric power houses
and trains, automatic signals, safety devices, the
elimination of grade crossings — and for recon
struction and engineering economies that will re
duce the cost of transportation.
To attract to the railroads in the future the in- •
vestment funds of many thrifty citizens, the direct
ing genius of the most capable builders and man
agers, and the skill and loyalty of the best work
men — in competition with other industries bid
ding for capital, managers and men — the railroad
industry must hold out fair rewards to capital, to
managers.and to the men.
American railroads will continue to set world
i standards and adequately serve the Nation's needs
if they continue to be built and operated on the
' American principle of rewards for work well done.

Sthe freak house|
&i By JACK LAWTON. !*j
The \\ oiiimii In shabby black stopped
before a boos* Ml back on a rolling
lawn to read again the addreM on a
paper she carried. lea, this was un
doubtedly the place she sought. "A
frriik home," the employment agent
had called it, "built it) imitiilion of
an old thatched cottage in Ireland."
"These lingers are mostly freaks
themselves," iin' agenl added, "even
If they d» luivc loti of money."

of her young checks.
"They are wild Irish roses, Nance,"
her lover would say. t Nun's roses had

of what they had been. The wonder
land of America where she had come
so hopefully failed to bring fulfillment
of her dreams. Nance hud pictured
easy independence here us she closed
forever the door of the thatched cot

The laughing Irish lover lad had
long gone on his fortune-seeking way.

the great city, as years had taken her
youth's freshness. Work suitable to

somehow she managed, and her bright

caught her eye; she had been sewing
in a hot city room, and the promise
of country air and green fields was
sufficient to form her decision. She
would answer in person the advertise
But as she stood there seemed no
need for hurry In this peaceful
scene. She passed to the rear flower
framed door and raised a wooden
knocker. It was a uniformed maid
who led her into the comfortable room
of the resigning housekeeper. That
person, after one keen glance, sighed
"At last," she said, "I see my way
clear to go. You hnve the appearance

most Impossible to find these days,
especially In this lonely spot. It's all
right for the great folks who go and
come from the city. For servants the
situation Is not inviting. Your diffi

you, Mr. O'Nell Is nway from home
so much on his singing tours that you
will prohnbly be uMp to maniige—at

Nance put out an interrupting hand.
"This Is Mr. O'Nell'S home':" she
asked unbelievingly. "Not Lurry
O'Nell, the Irish tenor?"
The housekeeper nodded.
"Didn't you know?" she asked. "Ev
erybody hereabouts has heard of his
e«rly Irish home and how when he
made his money he tried to imitate
the thatched cottage as well as could
be done in grand style. His old
mother lived with him here till she
died. Mr. O'Nell Is a flue man and a
home-loving one too. though none of
those Idolizing women have tempted

upon me a great deal. But my people
need me now. Will you let me see

"Miss," corrected Name. "I'm Miss
Nance Bawn. I have no reference as
housekeeper, only as to character. I
hoped if you'd be willing to try me
for a few days—"
"I'm afraid I'll be forced to," the
housekeeper said dubiously, "if I wish
to get away."
She was efficient in her new work;
the departing housekeeper with sat
isfaction discovered this fact before
the second day of trial was over. The
singer's especial sanctum took on an
Inexplicable air of homeness upon
that second evening. His cigar stand
was Just, where it should he, and an
Irish ballad lay upon his piano. Idly
he sat and played it through, the
lamplight glinting his silvering hair —
"When I dream of old Ireland," he
sang, "I'm dreaming of you."
A WOSMUI stood behind him when he
turned, a little woman in a sprigged
lavender dress. She" was holding
toward him respectfully a tray with
a cup of coffee on it. But Larry
O'Nell Jumped unbelievingly to his

Ned Humes and Ms classmate!
were holding an Indignation meeting,
at which Ned seemed to have by far
the greatest grievance. They bad just
left their English classroom where
the professor luiil startled them by
announcing the fact tliat they must
write i short rtory for the next day.
"He lias no right to do It," said Ned.
"This Is ii course In critical writing
and not narration."
"You're right, old chap," said his
friend Dick, "and it sure is harder
to write ii love story than to toss off
a criticism, but I suppose we'll have
to do It."
"Thank goodness, be didn't specify
it hail 10 be n love story."
"No. but that's about the easiest,

"Well, it's all right to write nbout
adventures If you ever had any, but
I'm not going to write a lot of ridicu
lous lies. 1 couldn't do it anyway, I
tell you. Kverybody always said 1 had
no more Imagination than a ent."
The next morning in the Kngllsh
class, Instead of seeing a frowning
and gloomy Ned Barnes, his friends
saw a beaming countenance which
still remained beaming when the pro
lessor said "We will begin by reading
Barnes' story. And to un eagerly in
terested audience he read the fol
lowing :
"The train from New Hampshire has
just drawn Into Boston us It hag a
thousand times before. But today It
is all different for there is one little
passenger who has never seen Boston,
or Indeed any other city. Her expres
sion of eager curiosity and childish
delight attracts us at once. To look
at her sweet and Innocent face, one
would never suspect that she was
deceiving her poor old aunt In the
belief that she was spending the day
with a friend in the next town in
order that she might slip away to the
magic city of Boston for a few hours.
Just a few short hours, that was
the only cloud on her horizon ; just a
few short hours, but she dare not
stay longer. But perhaps that would
he long enough, and she clutched her
little hand still more closely over
something that she had held In the
palm of her hand ever since she left
home. We would love to see what it
is, but It is evidently very precious,
for she is not willing to let go for
a minute. We will follow her through
the station and listen to her timid
request for Information. The myster
ies of the elevated and subway seem
ing to be unfathomable, she decides to
walk, and 10 minutes later she Is
standing before r millinery window,
wide-eyed and breathless. Surely she
must be dreaming. Such wonderful
creations never existed outside of
Fairyland. One in particular took her
fancy. It was large and droopy and
fluffy, with the dearest little forget
me-nots. Did I tell you her eyes were
as blue as the heavens above and her
cheeks as pink as the roses in an old
New Kngland garden. Surely It would
be becoming.
With a little flutter of her heart
and a tighter clasp of her little hand
on her imprisoned secret, she entered
the shop.
If Boston was new to her, certainly
she was new to Boston. Her fresh
beauty and simplicity aroused the
jaded Interests of even the shop girls
and they vied with each other in
walling on her. First she tried on the
forget-me-not hat In the window. It
whs all that her heart craved for, but
true to the eternal feminine, she must
try on every other hat she saw —Just
to make sure. Finally, after gloating
over all the wonders she decided on
her first choice. When It wag pre
sented to her in a box so big she could
scarcely carry It, she thanked the
clerk for her kindness and started te
go away.
"Walt a minute, my dear. You have
not paid for It yet."
"Paid for it! Oh. I thought
A look of embarrassment and then a
deep flush spread over her face. "Oh,
I must be In the wrong store."
Slowly, almost regretfully, she open
ed her hand and cave the clerk the
crumpled paper she had carried for
hours in her hand. "Will you tell me
where that store is. please?"
The clerk, at first amused, and just
as quickly ashamed of her amuse
ment, read their own last Sunday's
Bewilderincly beautiful. Charmingly
simple. Daringly dashing. Delightfully
demure. All kinds to suit all tastes.
In a daze the girl listened to the
clerk's gentle and .sympathetic ex
planation of the wicked city's exag
ceratlons, bui it is doubtful if she
understood anything except that she
had lost her hat. Completely disillu
sioned, she left the shop. Two big
tears gathered in her eyes and blur
red everything. She did not even see

called away for n few minutes. A
r-inrni of cxilHiiißtions greet Ned,
such as "I Mi. no. ton wouldn't \vrlt<

"Well, my description didn't do her
justice, and neither does this." And ,
he drew a snapshot shyly from his ,
pocket, "but you'll all have a chance
to Judge for yourself, for If old Aunt
Mehltable or Henzlbah, or whatever
her name is, will give her consent,
she will be at our dance next week."
