people. Some of them are very supersti

one of the incident of the profession.

engineer on the" Cleveland-Toledo Rail
road, and one of the best tbnt ran into
Cleveland some two rear'.
Hundreds of people made it their habit
to walk on the track for a mile or two
out ; and as there were several tracks
with train passing and repassing con
stantly, careless ar oVrdrpWople (and deaf
people always seem to prder a railroad
to walk on, ) in stepping off the track lo
get out of the way, frequently get rigltt
in the way of on spprnaehrrig nnobsei v
in another direc?ini. In such cases, how
ever careful an engineer may be, he can
not prevent a collision.
