During "her iliac, s the character of
neighbors, friends and total strangers
has been shown and in a manner
which stamps them as being all tc
the good. Many a delicate tid-bit
has found it; way to her sick btd.
many a tasty piece of cake, glasses
of jelly, and many beautiful . flowers

little acts of kindness shows the

It may not be a popular statement
to make, but it is an economic in
justice to impose general ta.xa; for
wholesale elimination of railroad
grade crossings. If there be any
danger in driving across most rail
road track, the danger is in the
driver or in the absence of suitable
warning signals and not in the cross
ing. Many of the vrst grade cross
ing accidents occur where the driver
has an unobitructed view of an ap
proaching train. Instead of slowing
down or stopping to let a train-go
by, too many drivers ctep on the gas
and try to beat the train across.
The real problem to be dealt with
is careless anving. len times as
many accidents occurr on the high
ways as at railroad crossings. Ex
pensive grade changes at crossings
will not prevent these. Men, women
and 'children are daily run down and
' injured on streets and highways.
Carele s drivers cause head-on
crashes, go through fencs, skid 0ff
the road, go down embankments,
maiming, crippling, killing and fill
the morgues and hospitals wtth vic
tims of their reckle: sness.
Wholesale grade crossing changes
which would take millions, in tax
funds to make any impression,
