Experience, scientific management and conditions
govern the operation of all railroad trains. No arbitrary
rule can ever be substituted for common sense, the sum
of these factors.
When the Full Crew —" excess man crew " —Law,
which arbitrarily fixes a minimum number of men for
all tfain crews, attempts to take the place of common
sense this is the result:
One limited passenger train of seven cars is forced
to carry a crew of eleven men, not counting the five in
The Metropolitan Limited of nine cars has fourteen
men in the crew and ten in the diner.
The railroads are yearly forced to waste $2,000,000
in wages for such superfluous men.
But when experience, scientific management and
conditions dictate, the railroads do not hesitate to man
trains in excess of the number set by the Full Crew
Law. Every day 480 freight trains in New Jersey and
Pennsylvania are carrying more men than the law re
For example, one Lehigh Valley Railroad local
freight train of about 15 cars is given a crew of seven
men—the law requires only five —because there is work
to be done.
Anxious to speed the return of common sense in
train manning, the railroads favor giving the Public
Service Commissioners full power over the manning of
trains without any restriction as to the minimum or
maximum number of men. This will do all that the Full
Crew Law was intended to do, and will, in addition,
broaden the power in the public's hands.

Don't Be Fussy
Your Stomach Will Digest Any Kind
of Food When Given the
We are prone to fall into the error
of singling out some article of food
and soundly berating the fiend who
first invented the dish. The habit
grows with some people till almost all
food is put on the blacklist. This is
all wrong. What is required is a little
assistance with those agencies upon
which scientific students for many
years have set their seal of approval
because they have become absolute
facts. Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets for
all stomach disorders are recognized;
they have a fine record, they are rated
reliable, dependable and worthy of con
fidence just as the president of a big
bank puts his O. K. on a depositor's
cheek. And so you can eat what you
■want, whatever you like, knowing well
that should indigestion, sour risings,
gas formations, fermentation* or any
other stomach distress arise, Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets in a few moments
will put you right.
Coated tongue, bad breath, heart
burn. belching, flatulency, bloat—all
the symptoms of digestive troubles
disappear quickly when these tablets
are used. They are not a cure for any
thing but dyspepsia and kindred com
plaints. But they have brought relief
t« more sufferers from digestive dis
eases than all the patent medicines and
doctor's prescriptions put together.
The stomach does the heaviest work
of any of the bodily organs, yet it's
the one' we treat with the least re
gard. We eat too much of the wrong
kind of food at any time. The patient
stomach stands such treatment as long
as it can and then it rebels. You get
notice of the rebellion in the shape of
the gases and paios caused by undi
gested, fermenting food.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are sold
and recommended by all druggists at
50c a box.
