' (Special to The News.) Nashville, April 10. The sixty-seventh annual report of the operations of the Nashville. Chattanooga St Louts railway, which covers an eventful period In the history of the property, was submitted to a meeting' of the etockholders of the road held on Monday. The operating revenues for the year ended Dec: SI. 1917, were $16,l4,766.l. as against ill.H,688.4T for the year 1916, while the operating expenses for 1917 were ll,560,081.87, as compared with 19,749,810.40 for the previous year. The total operating income lor the year was, as com pared with a total operating Income for 1918 of $3,448,995.42. The net in-come for 1917 was $2,889,818.78, as compared with a net Income of $8,- 058,938.82 for 1910. During the year the carrVrs had the sordlal co-operation of the public and the national administration in tneir efforts to meet the conditions produced by the war. Increased eiflclency was thereby effected In heavier loading of freight cars and In much prompter unloading of cars. Though this assistance ana co-operation nave resulted In ameliorating conditions, yet at times it has been Impossible to move promptly the great volume of tiafllo offered by tho government and the publics. ' The unprecedented' conditions produced by the great world war have made necessary the movement from the Interior to the seaboard of great numbers of men and vast stores of munitions and food supplies. The transportation lines were unprepared fdf this enormous Increase In traffic. During the past ten years, says the report, it has grown more difficult to secure capital for investment on ao. count of additions and betterments, and during the year 1917 there was recorded an actual decrease In the ag gregate rillrond mileage In the United Mates. Though the volunle of trafTto lncrensed largely In 1916 and reached n unprecedented volume In 1917, yet there was no corresponding Increase In motive power or other equipment. These conditions, common to all ttie carriers, liovo had a pronounced ef fect on the operation of the properties. The operating revenues for the year exceeded by $1,DU0,000 the revenues for the previous year, though the earnings for 1918 were greater than for any other twelvs months' period lit the history of the property. Tho net revenue from operations has been greater than tor any previous year, except 1918, but fell short of that year by about $125,000. The ratio of operating expenses to revenue this year was 7.i)2 per cent., an increann of 8.90 per rent, over laat ypar. This high percentage la due to the higher coats of all materials usod in maintaining sod operating the property, increases in wages paid the train me s under the Adamnon law aud necessary Increases to clerical forces and other labor on account of increased cost of living. . It Is hecornliyr mom and more difficult to maintain w I king forces up to the required standards. About 00 of the employes have entered the army, and there Is a constant shifting of men among the clerical and shop forces and amongst manual laborers, due chiefly to enormous Increases made In sculps of wages by manufacturing plants now operating In this and adjacent territory, producing war materials and supplies. The report also notes the taking A CHILDDOESN'T UUGIi AND PLAY IF CONSTIPATED Look, Motherl It tongue coated breath feveriih and stomach tour?

In the first campaign for liberty loan bonds the company subscribed to $250,000, and in the second campaign to $1,000,000 liberty loan bonds. During the year there was charged for .expenditures for addttlona and betterments the following: Equipment .....$ 172,901.18 Road i 1,208,706.78 During the year there were 489,002 crossties and 431 sets swltchtles used In renewals and 98,941 crossties and 189 sets swltchtles used In additions and betterments and for miscellaneous purposes, Tho crossties used In r. newals represent a little more than 10 per cent, of the total crossties In all tracks. , There were 66,069 cubic yards of ballast used In maintenance of track. There were 204 feet of steel bridge spans added and 1,26$ feet of timber trestle filled; 128 feet of bridge spans replaced timber trestle; 256 fest of light steel bridges were replaced by spans of heavier design, and 628 feet of timber trestle replaced by creosoted timber structure with concrete supports and ballast decks. The valuation work reaulred by the government has been completed, with the exception that the real estate branch has appraisals yet to make or real estate lying at large terminals and on that part of the Atlanta division lying In Tennessee. No report of the valuation of this railway has as yet been made by the government's division of valuation. The expense to this company during the year for this work was $12,187.12, and the total qost to date is $104,692.17. The report also refers to the telephone lines which the company has constructed and which are used In dispatching trains. There is now telephone service on the Memphis division between Faducah and Hollow Rock Junction, end on the Perryvllle branch; on the Nashville division be tween Hickman and Nashville, including Centrevllle branch; Chattanooga division between" Nashville and Chattanooga, Including Hholbyvllle, Lebanon, Tracy City and Sequatchie valley branches, and telephone service Is also being extended from the Tracy branch to the end of the Tatesvllle spur, which is the thirteen-mile extension being built by the company to reach new coal fields on the Cumber land plateau. The report also notes the placing In service of the double-track bridge at Metropolis, III., on Deo. 14, but there Is yet considerable work to be done before Its final completion. This bridge Is the connecting link between the great northwest and the south-eaat, and Is, perhaps, one of the most important pieces of railroad construction work that has been done In this territory In years. The" bridge is over n mile In length. GREASE AND GLYCERINE SCRUPULOUSLY HOARDED St. Louis Institutes Offioisl Gsrbsge Pail Table end Kitohen Watte Savsd for Fertilisers. St, Louis,.. Mo March 80.
