Traffic Reserves on Busy Cor
ners Sound Whistles, Sig
, naling Drivers to Stop and
, Go Ahead; Follow Cars.
In Philadelphia the auto drivers must
follow the strert cars, they are regv
tated at corners by four traffics reserves
s oil each corner wh do not motion them
ahead or to atop, but they employ whla
ties and the vehicle driver, the"motor
1 f , man and the pedestrian learn to listen
' for the sound, and the list of accidents
. on busy corners la down to the mini
mum. according to Chief of Police Jo
seph B. Taylor of Philadelphia, who Is
at' the Portland notel witn nis win on
brief visit.
"The speed question Is now and will
ever be a" serious problem, said Mr,
- Taylor. "We have experienced consider
able difficulty in combating the evil,
but our system so far has proved fairly
- lurcessf OL
v - "For Instance, the autolst must not
' ftass a street car when the car Is not
running; he must not cross the street at corners: he must not par nis
car In the street. Modifying the latter
statement, I may say that we do permit
cars to be parked on Broad street, but
only . because Broad is a particularly
wide thoroughfare, and there they are
- permitted to stand their machines in the
middle of the street only.
.Most Follow Street Cars.
Mr. Taylor explain that In Phlladel
' phi there Is but a single street cat
track on streets, which run east and
,-l.west nd-north attfl south, If an autolst
v desires to go east while oh -a street
running north and south, he must fol
low the street car, or. the direction the
tar travels until he reaches a street
Dton which the stret cars run east.
Besides the four "reserves" on each
corner, Philadelphia Is supplied with
"tOO mounted men who also help to
i, strictly enforce the vehicle ordinance.
Philadelphia has more than 6,000 au
tonaoblles, says Mr. Taylor, but the Usit
', of accidents from speeding is not heavy.
V This because the police axe particularly
. rigllant apd because all the authori
ties' endeavor to give the pedestrian at
least even chances for his life.
Mr. Taylor believes his plan of regu
lating traffic on the corners by use of
whistles is the best "that can be em
ployed. , Laarn Tse of Wllstle.
' Many times, he says, pedestrians do
jnot see the motions of the officers and
accidents rot Infrequently occur, when
:rTVlth" the whistle plan everyone soon
' 'learns thri one whistle means for the
" "traffic going east or west to stop, while
that traveling cnorth orsouth moves
forward, and two meansrvice versa,
" Mr,' Taylor lias teen connected with
--.the -police department of Philadelphia
"for' 27 years. He has been the chief
-Of police since 1904. He has been at

have had enough cars If Its cars had
been returned promptly by the Missouri

We should be careful to give him the
essentials of right living the humani

Is not dependent upon the creed of any
one denomination.
"I am an evolutionist as regards the
question of what to do for our red
brethren. They cannot be transmuted
Into something other than they are
by any fervor or religious experience,
or by any attempt "to acquire a higher
education. They must grow into some
thing different by pressure of their
changed conditions. This is not my dic
tum; It Is the teaching 'of science and
the fruit of the modern study of races.
If the suffering and sorrow of the red
man's transition, could be averted, every
humane citizen would rejoice, but such
is not the history of past peoples. Our
Work should' be that of a friendly' race,
who, having passed the first stages of

One farmer's wife has at herehome
five Indian girls she has befriended.
The Indians were living near her, tn
a miserable neglected state, the Ish
maelltes of this country. Her mother
heart was burdened with the thought
of them and she determined to try to
do something for one child. Indian par
ents find It hard to believe that white
people can bo disinterested in their
errorts for them; so there was opposi
tion at once. She had found one) young
girl who loved music, so this" was made
the bait, and for the promise to teach
her to play and sing the girl braved
the displeasure of her own people, and
jvent to live In the white family. There
she has learned the arts of the house
hold, the refinement of civilization and
the grace of Christian life. She has
been in school and proved herself a
good student She has played the or
gan for the little church for two years,
and all without losing her love for her
own people.
Other Indian families have seen all
this, and want their girls to be Itke Al
ma, until now their plea has tecome so
irresistible that the good woman Is
mothering four more girls from as i
many families, a work quite beyond
ner means. K
