Much Detail in Work.
Ten movements are involved in the
delivery of a special train onler:
Telegraphing the order to the sta
tlons; writing 'down of the order as
If 'eived; repetition of the order by
the station operator to the dispatcher;
O. K. on the transmission by the dis
pateher; acknowledgment of the O. K
by the operator; comparing copies
with the recipients of the order and
receiving their signatures; telegraph
ing the signatures to the dispatcher;
acknowledgment of the signatures and
permission to deliver order; indorse-
ment of this reply on the order, and
final delivery of the order to the train-
Not until the final step In this
round has been taken is the order
considered complete. After it has
been finally sealed the operator makes
triplicate tissue copies, one of which
he hands to the conductor, one to the
engineer and the third he keeps him-
Some roads demand that the eonduc
tor read his copy to the engineer in
the presence of the operator. On
some it is the custom to deliver the
order only to the conductor.
When his order has been carried
out the dispatcher draws a blue pen
cil line through his oopy book and
signs his initials. If he is relieved
before all steps have been completed
his relief signs the order to show
that he understands it.
The process of making orders and
delivering them is as simple as a
primer after a little experience. But
when freight is heavy and excursions
are running, the business of a division
entails many combinations.

Caution Causes Delays.
Delays on the rail In winter are
caused as much by caution as any-
thing else. All operators are warn
ed to run no risks during extreme
cold weather. Sometimes the cold
prevents the automatic signals from
The expense of operating a rail-
road during extreme cold weather is
enormous. Fuel bills are greatly In-
creased and revenues are reduced be^
cause of the non movement of per-
ishable commodities. This winter
has been extremely cold, rather than
one with quantities of snow. There
are instances where one night fall of
snow will represent $100,000 of ex
pense to a railroad the next day. It
is not uncomomn that the item ot
clearing a railroad system of snow-
will represent from $500,000 to $1,500,-
000 in a single winter.
Notwithstanding all this, passenger
traffic has moved with considerably
freedom and certainly a minimum
amount of discomfort to the traveling
