Railroad Travel is The Liner Imperator, the Big Eastern Centerl, Largest 5hip Ever Built Safe in_lhis Country Statistics Show Less Life than Across Great Northern Desires Exhibits the Water Agricultural Product Every time there's a railroad acci- dent in this country, some one arises to E. C. Leedy, emigration agent for the G. N., writes that better opportun- ity is going to be afforded the coming wiuter sea.on by his road than ever be- fore for the display of northwestern products throughout the east and urges action in every community. The ex- hibits will be given front window dis- play in a number of different big eist- cities, being moved from place to p:ace and a proper exhibit from Monroe would give the community advertising of a value that could not be calculated. The road will take entire charge of shipping the products and handling them. It might be well this year for the Commercial club to take the matter in hand and arrange for a display that I would cost little or nothing and that would surely give Monroe a big boost. In writing, Mr. Leedy gives the fol- lowing suggestions for preparing ex- hibits which should also include fruits and berries: In collecting an exhibit of grain, grasses, vegetables and fruits f9r ex- hibition purposes, it is not only import- ant to have good material but it is equally as important to have the same carefully selected and properly prepar- ed. The best exhibition material may be entirely ruined by being poorly put up and improperly packed and as a re- sult, arriving at a destination worth- remark that travel in England and on the continent is not nearly so hazard- ous. Juhus Kruttshnitt, vice president of the Harriman Railways and recog- nized as one of the ablest railroad oper- ators in the country has just concluded a searching statistical investigation which refutes this bromidion charge. It shows conclusively that the principal systems of the United States suffer less havoc than is wrought on British railroads in comparison with the busi- ness done. That the railroads of Great Britain are operated with more safety to pas- sengers than those of the leading lines of the United States proves to have been a mere statement based on very superficial evidence and one that has done great injustice to the American industry of railroading. In comparing the number of people killed on British railroads, the commenters always over- look the fact that there are only 24,000 miles of railroads in Great Britain, all itold, as against'240,000 in the United States. Hence there are ten times as many chances for accident in this coun- try, as in Great Britain. Mr. Kruttschnitt's examination of the fatality facts shows that there are a number of railroad systems in the country that could be taken with a col- lective mileage twice that of Great ICE.....

It is necessary to permit the grain to get ripe in order that it may show the natural color of maturity. Grain which is selected before it is ripe never loses I the greenish cast and never makes an attractive exhibit. It is of equal im- portance that the grain be not allowed Lo become too ripe so that it shells out n selecting and shipping. After selecting grain, spread out on 5oards in a shady place, leave this way for a couple of days so that it will dry enough to prevent molding in bundles. rhen place in bundles not less than four inches in diameter below the heads #hen tied. There are no objections to roving it put up in large bundles with Lhe exception that it is almost impossi- ble to cure it properly. Before arranging clover in bundles pread out for a couple of days in a )3rfectly dark and ventilated place so hat it will dry enough to prevent mold- rag. After arranging in bundles, hang n the dark as the light bleeches it out. It is always advisable to cure grains md grasses in the shade in order to re- Lain the deep rich color, which it is im- possible to do in the sun. Do not place ,n a close room where there is no air circulation as griin or grasses will mold ,)efore it cures and thereby render it worthless. In selecting potatoes it is of the reatest importance that only smooth potatoes of good color and as large as possible be selected. The finest pota- to display, however, does not always consist of the largest potatoes, but I there is nothing that attracts more at- Lention at land shows and on exhibition cars than fine large potatoes.

She weighs 37.400 tons, inclusive of machinery and cargo; is S71 feet long, 97 feet wide and will carry 4,100 people-- 3,000 besides her crew She has eleven decks and is equipped with the new "U tanks" to prevent her rolling and with turbine engines, one of which shown in the illustration. Her time between Hamburg and New York will be from eight to eight and one-half days. The new boat, which will be placed in commission next year, will have a swimming pool, a veranda care and a concert room It is also announced that she will carry lifeboats enough to accommodate every person on board. The emperor, who is a friend of Etert l]allin, head of the steamship company, was present at her launching.

It must also be taken into con- sideration that thousands of miles of railroad in this country are "operated in tw cou try over cheaply constructed zrackage, wh,cn makes the American showing ever, better. It will be an interesting item of news to most American travelers that a corn- between the Union-Pacific- Southern Pacific systems and the Brit- mh railroads shows that the Harriman lines are far safer for the passengers than the lines {n Great Britian. In 1910, the United Kingdom had 23,387 miles of railroad. The total passengers carried one mile that year was 13,731,- 760,000. Fourteen passengers were killed in accidents The two Harriman systems referred to easily eclipse this rccord, for with 18,345 miles of tracks, they hauled 98,896,028 passengers 5,- 434,697,392 passenger miles, without a single passenger being killed by derail- " ment or collision. The remarkable record for passenger safety make by the Harriman lines as shown above, of which the Oregon-. Washington Railway & Navigation Company is an integral part, is ac- counted for by Mr. Kruttschnitt by the employment Of  safety devices and modern methods throughout.
