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
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
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
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

thinks the State can get along without "pink bills" in the

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
"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.
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.

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

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
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

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

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
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.—
