Every trade has its own peculiar
varnacular, says Anna Carlson. It
is said of a railroad man’s recent
conversion that when the pastor
of his church called on him for a
public prayer he prayed as follows:
"Now that 1 have flagged thee, lift
up my feet from the rough road of
life and plant them safely on the
deck of train of salvation. Let me
use the safety lamp of prudence,
make all the couplings with the
link of love, and let my handlamp
be the Bible, and keep all switches
closed that lead off the main line
into the sidings with blind ends.
Have every semapore block along
the white line of hope, that I may
have the run of life without stop-
ping. Give me the ten command-
ments as a working card*, and when
I have finished the run on sched-
