THE BETTER
SHOPPING
SAFETY FIRST
Eighty per cent of the cases of
personal injury result from min
or causes easily corrected or re
moved. Will ycu do what you
can to remove such causes that
encourage care and thus protect
yourself and fellow employees
from injury.
Railroad employees and their
families are the sufferers in 75
per cent of the personal accident
cases in railroad business. The
big majority of such injuries re
sult from small causes and
thoughtless acts. Let's remove
ail the small causes we see and
take more care instead of taking
chances:
The more carelessness the less
railroad men.. . Isn't it better to
abolish carelessness than men?
You can make carelessness that
may cause injury to yourself and
others so unpopular that the fig
ures to be given you later show
ing the diminution of personal
injury cases will surprise you.
Try it.
Experience is a good teacher.
Do not wait until you experience
an accident but learn from the
experience of your fellow work
men. Forethought is the best
safeguard. , A stitch in time may
save an, amputation.
Effective accident prevention
depends upon common sense and
the right spirit more thanupon
expert advice and complicated
mechanism.
Twenty-seven per cent reducj
tion in injuries to employees in
December 1911 as compared with
December 1910, a net aggregate
reduction of 19 per cent in injur
ies to all classes of persons.
These reductions can be doubled
between now and July 1st, 1912.
Take no foolish chances. Noth
ing is-too much trouble that will
save your Kfe and limbs. Be wise
today and be whole tomorrow.
Don't take chances.
You don't expect anything else
than to be able to find just the
article you want when you go to
a city to buy, but you are sur
prised'to find furniture and rugs
of the higher grades and great
variety right here in your own
town. You don't have to go to a
city to buy; go see Bob Callaway.

ler, born deaf, dumb and blind,
has almost fully surmounted one
of her handicaps and is to make
her first public appearance in
the lecture platform at a Social

a certain extent during the past
year the development of her voice
under the care of a singing teach

where her words will carry in an
auditorium.
Do you, like other folks, some
times find it necessary to provide
a spare bed where you have an
extra amount of company? You
should see those new steel couch
beds at Bob Callaway's buy one
and the problem will be solved, tf

THE PARCEL POST
There's no more labor for the
frau her day of toil is o'er; we
order up our dinner now from
some far distant shore; the post
man comes with sundry things
and leaves them at our gate; but
oh the arrows and the stings
whene'er the mail is late. We
cannot grumble at the cook it
does no good to groan; we simply
grab our little book and find the
pesky zone, then send a message
dcwn the line, "Please hurry up
that roast." Oh isn't it a joy to
dine since we got parcel post?
Or when we need a bale of hay, a
turkey or a cow, an auto car, an
orchard spray, a wagon or a plow,
a slide trombone, a tenor drum,
or pickles from the store, it's
krand to have the Postman come
and drop them at our door. Wo
ought to rise and offer thanks un
to our statesmen dear; we ought
to quit our gloomy pranks and live
a life of cheer; we ought to praise
our Uncle Sam for bringing
quail on-toast and terrapin and
calves-foot jam by his great par
cel post.
