To mistrust Italy's loyalty in this crisis is to he like the jealous husband. "A Jealous husband slipped into the house in his usual quiet way one eve ning and heard his wife at the tele phone. To whom could she be tele phoning? He tiptoed into the room, and his blood froze in his veins with horror as he heard her say: "'I love you so! You're my own haby boy.

Section near the volcano where the lava overflowed in a giant pile over a railroad route. An idea of the maelstrom that fell over San Salvador is obtainable from this photograph, which shows the immensity of the lava flow which was hurled in the air by the volcano. At the time of the eruptions no lives were lost although great damage was caused. Thousands of residents were made homeless and much suffering was endured by the people. There was great scarcity of water and food for a time after the earthquake. The United States government at the time of the eruptions offered unconditional assistance to San Salvador. CAUTION URGED AT CROSSINGS Many Accidents at Railroad Grades Due to Care lesness. STATISTES ARE 1VEN OgIT Secretary of 8tate of New York Sug gests Some Remedi-Reckless Driver Should Be Jailed Wants Universal Sign. During the past few months every automobilist In this state has received a little folder urging greater caution at grade crossings. The effort on the part of my office is but one of several being made by public officials and rail road companies in the hope of lessen Ing the number of deplorable acci dents, not one in a hundred of which would happen if the automobilist but used ordinary care on approaching some crossings, writes Francis M Hugo, secretary of New York state, in an exchange. The success or fail ure of the campaign depends almost entirely on the automobilist himself. This year finds a third more cars in the state, so that if the accidents do not gain over a year ago some little success will characterize the cam paign. Statistics show a 100 per cent increase in grade-crossing accidents in which motor cars figure in the United States during the last five years. Accidents on Lehigh. In 1915 automobilists figured in six grade-crossing accidents on the Le high Valley lines in this state. The number increased in 1916 to nine and 14 last year, thus more than doubling in three years. The records of the New York Cen tral railroad show that 12 persons were killed and 61 Injured in 86 acci dents to automobiles on grade cross ings In this state last year. During the past year a total of 125 persons were killed and 231 injured in similar accidents on all the railroads in this I state. In a recent communication Mar y cus A. Dow, general safety agent of s, the New York Central, admits that g up to the present time 4t is a question ºf as to whether or not the road's special r- campaign has been one productive of - results. Safety-First Campaign. The Long Island railroad, during the past two or three years, has con ducted an elaborate safety-first car paign. J. A. McRea, its manager, sums up his observations in the fol lowing words: "I am convinced that automobillsts, to whom accidents occur at grade it crossings, are divided into three A classes: "First-The plain reckless irrespon e sible, and sometimes drunken, driver. t "Second-The automobilist who is a e- stranger to the country through which he Is driving. , "Third-A very large class of driv h ers who are permitted to operate an automobile without the proper experi 'n once. t Remedies Recommended. t- "To reduce the accidents my recom mendation would be as follows: r "First-The reckless driver should be put in jail; if a professional, his 1 license should be taken away. id ."Second-The highway should be equipped with a crossing approach warning aign as recommended by the Sjoint committee of the American Rall Sway association, the National Assocla Imncrease for Car en. - Members of the Brotherhood of Rail. way Car Men are jubilant over their successutol ending of a wage cnt Sversy with the Cinelmati, Hamilton L Dayton railroad. Inheuses averamge 5U cents an hour. Less Tralamen Killed. In 1908 there was one trainman killed for each 14 employed; la 1911,. one killed for eachb 183 mpioyed, ad 'n 191, one killed be eachb 24 - darad. tion of Railway Commissioners and the American Automobile association. This would be a universal sign recog nized by the motorists from Maine to California. "Third-This class is being recruit ed every day by the man who buys a cheap car and learns how to run it on some quiet street in the city and after one or two evenings will. on the first Sunday, load his entire family in the car and go for a ride through the country. He may know how to make the car ran. but does not know how to stop it; does not know what to do in case he gets into a tight corner and he is not only a danger to himself but to everyone else on the road. Individual drivers' li cense should be given only after a rigid examination which would protect this class from themselves and the public from them." ACROSS AMERICA 600 TIMES Tourist Conductor Completes 300th Round Trip From Boston to Los Angeles, Cak When Joe Willet stepped from the train at Boston the other day, he com pleted his three hundredth r6und trip Joe Willet. from Boston to Los Angeles.

"Un cle Joe" estimates he has traveled 4, 000,000 miles, a distance equal to 1,000 times around the world, or from the earth to the moon. GET MILK FOR HUNGRY BABY Electric Car on Indiana Traction Line Backed Eleven Miles to Re. live Infant. The Highlander, a car on the Terre Haute, Indianapolis and Eastern trac tion line, backed 11 miles into Brazil to procure some milk that would stop the crying of a hungry baby. The car, which left Brazil at 5:02 o'clock, ran only as far east as the current is supplied from the Brazil sub station. A break in the system near Greencastle knocked out all service during the early hours of the night and the car waited until about eight I o'clock. All persons on the car were hungry, but did not express themselves so c clearly as the infant which cried lusti a ly. John Barnett, passenger agent. was moved by the baby's appeal and ordered the tranlame to take tho ear Sback to BrasH. Valuable Milk Train.
