Railroad Racket

The "old reliable" Texas and Pacific is perhaps in better condition, boty physically and financially, than any other railroad west of the Mississippi river. It has never made any cut in salaries, and everybody is paid up promptly on the first of each month from one end of the road to the other, and this is something that can be said of very few roads in the country during these hard times. The Texas and Pacific goes even ahead improving and increasing its rolling stock, which keeps the shops running. It has three big new engines due to arrive in a few days. During the summer, a number of new bridges and depot buildings have been put up and the track placed in first class condition. The Texas and Pacific prepared for hard times in advance, and under the excellent management of General Superintendent, L. S. Thorne, it is pulling through in good shape, and will be in condition to enter upon an erea of genuine prosperity as soon as business eases up.
