" A ftA)LROA6 OCCUPATION tHAT MU3t QflOW TO B£ tEDIOUS. the BU trnn*poftAtlou Comjmni«l Ueir tloatlbeiU In tlepalr^-tjDolt' Ing for Lod»« Nutu and Pi-otrndlug Soften Along the Line. the terrible accident that happened tc Peter Daagherty, the "tfackwalker," gave to many f eadera a new word in the vocabulary of "trades and occupations," That there was such an occupation afi trackwalking under the big cover ot the starry rtotne not one man in a thousand ever imagined. "A trackwalker, a trackwalker?" exclaimed one citizen when asked the definition of the term, "Why, yes; of course. A trackwalker ia a fellow who walks the tracks. See? Just as easy! Now ask me something real hard." If pressed for a closer explanation of the long word's meaning, the citizen proceeds to get facetious! "Oh, watcher trying to ring in on me now! A trackwalker is—a trackwalker. When the carnivorous tramp is hunted from Ills lair in one city he emigrates to another. On the way thither, my friend, he ia a valuable specimen of the genus trackwalker. When the manager of an "Uncle Tom's Cabin" troop folds up his pocketbook and, like an Arab, silently steals away, leaving sweet little Eva, good old Uncle Tom and religions Miss Ophelia to swear at his memory for their salaries, why, then they are very likely to become trackwalkers. Then, again, you might call hucksters who drive their wagons np and down the street car trackfl track hawkers,. He, he, he I See?" Which all goea to ihow that the real bona fide trackwalker is comparatively an unknown cog in the great machine of the world. If that cog was suddenly taken out of place and thrown away the world would very soon discover its loss. Prom the crashing of wrecked trains would come the death rattle of the dying from the ruddy glare of burning cars would come the shrieks of tortured wretches pinned beneath heavy timbers, and the one cry sounded from end to end of the land would be, "The trackwalker deserted his trust." Ride along any road for five or ten miles and you will overtake him, plodding along beside the track. He is not dressed in the latest cutaway diagonal, and his trousers, if noticed, bag at the knees. He only gets $1.60 a day. here in the west, and in some eastern districts still loss. He carries a wrench and a hammer, and now and then stops to tighten a bolt in a rail or drive a spike into a tie. He tramps along thus for twelve hours out of the twenty- four, and at the end of the day "can Bleep without rocking." A reporter found Daugherty yesterday in one of the pleasant wards of St. Mary's infirmary. Bending over him, with her sweet face full of sympathy, was one of the sisters of the order. "He's doing very nicely," she softly said, "but must not be excited." You see, it's my shoulder there now," exclaimed Daughterly, raising his left arm and dropping it to the sheet again with a shudder of pain. "It seems as though it was under a trip hammer and the hammer was pounding for all it was worth. Still it isn't as bad now ns it was. Good gracious, but that old engine did hit me a clip!" "How did it happen?" "All fired sudden. I was walking along between the tracks, peaceable as you please, when down rolls a train on the left hand. Being afraid that the steam or something would hit mo I stepped into the right hand track. Whackl Biff! Yours truly got it in the neck sure as you live. An engine was flying down the right hand tracks, you see, and 1 merely tried to stop it by putting my 'shoulder to the wheel.' I don't remember what happened then. The lights went out. When I arrived in sight of myself again I was here. "My walk is from Carr street to the other end of the bridge in Madison. I'm not complaining of the walk at all, understand. They always treated mo white as Jong as I've been working for "em, which is only a couple of months. I'm just a little sorry that the company ia such a new one. They haven't got any hospital of their own yet, you know. That's why I'm here. Of course I'm being treated splendidly here—just as if I was at home—but, you see, I don't know exactly who's going to pay these good sisters for taking care of me. I'd hato to see 'em do all their work for nothing." Uaugherty gazed reverently at the crucifix hanging on the opposite wall before answering. "Speaking of the work, it's all right. 1 get $1.50 a day, just the same as the other laborers on the road, and it isn't as hard as digging. All you've got to do is to be sure and go over your section as many times as you're ordered, and see that the rails are in proper shape. If you find a loose bolt you take your pinchers and tighten it. If you find a spike poking its head into the air, give it a clip with your hammer. That's all there is to the business. If you should happen to find something out of whack and can't fix it yourself, why, you go for help; that's all You see, I know just enough about trackwalking to do my work well. I have never had any of the adventures that some of the men have. U yon want to hear some funny stories you ought to go down to Twelfth and Ora- tiot streets. "Some of those fellows have been walk- Ing the tracks all over the country for years. Some of 'em know every square inch of rail between here and New York, I'll bet, and can tell you with their eyes shut where they are if set down on any one of the roads between this town and Chicago, 4 fellow gets to know the weight of the ties on every mile he walks pver, and from day to day learns to pick out which holts are going to be loose and •wUcb spikes will poke their flat beads ateov* $§ teges cl $he vyfa Jt's Ww anything else; if you etay with it you'll Jeara it as yp« dp your friends'faces, fort of " tt!t« Afld Pftll of F4M11I**.

Now a part of the foolish ancestorship of the past resulted in the creation of aristocracies. built on the foundation of an illustrious ancestor. We are getting wiser and better. We are putting our aristocracies closer to the primal source. We are learning no longer to respect a man because his ancestor was better than himself, but because he himself is an ancestor. The farce of royalty is played out; the farce of rank and caste is in a moribund condition, All men will soon learn to laugh at the claims of long descent. Many men laugh at them now. And this in itself is an immense step in advance. Snobbery, vulgarity, pretension—these hideous traits will soon be of the past. Our grandchildren, freed from the absurd ideas, the absurd restrictions of semisavage inception, will be larger, more generous, more tolerant—better, in short, than ourselves. Fresh and vigorous blood will intermix with the worn out descendants of great men, and in due time greater men from the stock will bo born to the future.
