A notice is sent out for each check, and if any contract signer has not yet received a notice, it is because his check is not yet here.

"I wantr to thank my friends for their kind interest in me, especially the doctor, and the railroad men who brought me to my home. "I think I saw the longest engine that ever went over . the Northwestern road! I saw it only one or two seconds and when I woke up 80 feet down the bank free from the wreck of my car, with my shoulder dislocated and a few minor cuts and bruises, I hardly knew how It happened. "I have crossed that crossing 600 or 700 time each year for the past two years, and I never saw an engine near that crossing before; but I did not look this time. "So take my advice, and take time to look; you may meet that engine. Don't blame the railroad men; the engineer could not stop that mountain of steel in a short distance."
