What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

WISDOM H a v e you ever noticed that whenever two trains pass, freight or passenger, a trainman will signal, with hand or lantern, to the trainman at the rear of the other train? This is not merely a friendly gesture. Each man makes a careful visual in­ spection of the other's train-while it passes. Then h e signals that all is well or that h e has spotted some defect. This is just one phase of a continuous ''check and double check\ system. All THE NLOGRiSSIVi UNION PACIFIC R A I L R O A D Union Pacific trains are thoroughly in­ spected before leaving terminal points . . . all station agents check each train as it passes. Even track crews, along the right of way, are alert to spot any sign of trouble. Thus, Union Pacific trains are checked time and time again as they transport passengers and freight over the Stra­ tegic Middle Route, uniting the East with the mid-West and the Pacific coast.
