DANGER TO LIFE
ON RAILROAD IS
LESS THAN HALF
Thirty years ago the average
traveler in America took eight
annual journeys, and now In-
takes twelve, according to infor-
mation a- a result of statictics
completed and issued by the in-
terstate commerce commission.
Then he rode 24 miles each trip,
and now he rides J* miles. Not-
withstanding he rides halt as
many more than now, half again
in railway travel, yft the danger
to his life is less than halt as
great as it used to be. If he rode
once m the lust J3 years, his
chance s of being killed were one
in Vl.(MMKX), or. if he took one
trip each year during that per
iod he came as ncAr losing his
life :i- one is mar to 2,760,000.
One ride taken last year impos-
ed a hazard on hi# life of only
one in 5,673,000, and on his
twelve customary journeys, he
was is far from jeopardy as 473,-
000 is greater than one.
Although the railways of
the I'nited States carried in W20
1,300,000,000 jM.s.sengers, with one
killed tor each group of 5,1
0/3,000 carried, while in a total
<>f 47J.OOO.OOO people carried in
1X8V, the death rate' was one in
1,523,000. The danger to life of
railway travelers in 1020 was,
therefore, less than one-third
of what it was in 1889, most of
the reduction accfuiag since
1907. lo be sUrcjjRiere have
been very bad yews, and e.^
ceptionall) good y<^rs, but thej
general trend throughout the
whole period has been decUJMly
towards the increasing safety ot
the traveling public.

home demonstration agent, will leave
Sunday for Stillwater where they
will attend a convention of county
farm demonstration agents. The
meeting opens January 30 and will

These conventions are held twice

successful manner. Representatives

ally attend the meetings.

have been highly successful in their
work of organizing farm clubs of a.l
kinds as well as holding agriculture,
cooking and canning demonstrUiot.s.
There will be a meeting of the
Patrons club of the Jefferson school
at the building. Friday afternoon,
January 27, at 3:30 o'clock. Prof.
