The Pullman conductor carne promptly to the rescue, asking if he was hurt. "No, I'm not," answered the passenger good naturedly, "but the Pullman company's dividends wilĂ­ be cut down this year by the price of one pane. I suppose the stockholders can stand it, though." "The Pullman stockholders won't have .to, " said the conductor. ' ' It comes out of the X. , Y. and Z. Railroad conipany, to whose train we are attaehed. I shall make out a damage slip, the train conductor will certify it, the repairs will be made at the end of the route, and the railroad company will foot the bill.

If there is a scratch on the side of this car at the end of a run, the X. , Y. niirl 7,. nava for it. not the Pullman corupauy.
