Railway companies are making
a great wail because locomotive
engineers on many roads are re
ceiving larger salaries than the
governors o f many states receive.
Well, why shouldn’t they? To be
governor requires no special train
ing and only a very moderate sup
ply of brains. The main thing is
to be able to control a larger fol
lowing than the other fellow. To
be an engineer and command the
wage that is causing this turmoil,
a man must have a natural ability
backed up by hard work from the
roundhouse up. When an engi
neer starts on his run he takes his
life in his hands whereas the gov
ernor takes his goldheaded cane,
hail3 a jitney and is whisked away
to the state house where menials
do all his work for which there is
an extra allowance.
It is just
possible that engineers are receiv
ing too much pay and by the same
token it is highly probable that
governors receive more than their
services are worth.

said it turned a well inside out, a

the bung hole, changed the day of
the week, blew a mortgage off a
farm, blew all the cracks out of a
fence, knocked the wind out o f a
politician. It was further stated
that the cyclone not being satisfied
with all this damage blew the
feathers out o f a chicken and
hurried them in a grindstone.;
