Editor Light the perusal of the article in Light of yesterday respecting the prevalent belief that the number 13 is one of evil Omen or bad Luck goes to show what a vast amount of superstition still lurks in the minds of men and women and How impenetrable it is by reason. These same superstitious people never object to receiving 13 eggs to the dozen 13 ears of Corn or onions or tomatoes to the dozen. Why should any particular figure or number be either Lucky ? the figures themselves Are without thought sense Aud Power. They have no con Troi Over the chances of things. The idea that if thirteen persons eat at the same table one of them will die within the next twelve months had its origin in the a last supper a of Christ and his twelve apostles thirteen persons supping together and it still prevails in superstitious minds. There is nothing it but a silly superstition. But the number 13 was in other respects not w regarded As an unlucky number it is time All these superstitious notions were exploded cast aside and despised. There is neither Good or bad Luck in any figure or number. A. B. New theatre oar.

Today for Elpaso with division superintendent r. Ii. Lanes. Dispatcher de. Buchannan of the third trick Houston division. Sunset dispatchers office is expected Home from Chicago in a few Days. Sam Jones has taken advantage of the summer rates on the s. A. P., and will Start a months revival at corps Christi on the Chataqua grounds a i he train Sheet is an insignificant yellow Sheet about 18 by 30 inches and lies directly in front of the train dispatcher Between him and the Row of instruments ahead of him. In the Centre of the Sheet in the order they come Are the telegraphic stations on that particular division of the Road. right and left of this column of stations Are some fifteen or Twenty other columns in which Are to be marked Down the trains the Crew the number of loads the numbers of the trains the numbers of the engines the time of their arrivals at each station the delays accidents or wrecks. The columns to the right May denote trains going East those on the left trains going West or the one the North the other the South As the Road May run. Usually there Are freight and passenger trains which leave the Yards at certain regular periods. These trains Are printed by their number at the head of their respective columns and running As they do according to a regular marked out table Are of less concern to the dispatchers Titan the extra trains which must be constantly kept track of and advised when and where to meet. Thus it is that every train number Etc. And time of arrival at the various Telegraph stations i9 reported by the operators at these stations to the main office on the division carefully noted on the record a rom which the dispatcher then makes is calculations at which Points the trains Are to pass another. Besides room for these notations there 19 at the extreme right hand Side of the train Sheet a column for the weather report which is carefully kept by the operators along the line and we see such entries constantly being made Houston warm and slightly Cloudy la Grange Light rain Columbus raining Nard and so on a report from every station. Then on the rear of the train Sheet Are diagrams showing a More detailed report of matters As the number of the cars the kind of freight and 90 Forth. These sheets have out lived their usefulness at the end of every twelve hours for they Are then stacked away carefully marked and dated As most useful records for reference. At Midnight a new train Sheet i9 taken out and the same operation is repeated three Hundred anti sixty five and some times three Hundred Ana sixty six times a year. To the uninitiated the mystery of the train Sheet is Only surpassed by the Genius presiding Over it. He sits Over his insignificant Little yellow Sheet hi9 hand either on his pen or on the instrument before him and when he is not noting the arrivals of trains on the Sheet he is talking the most hopeless kind of greek Over the wires sending instructions to trains or seeking advices from operators. There he sits for eight consecutive hours in his chair directly in front of his ticker time table and train Sheet. Ile is either a first trick Man a second trick Man or a third trick Man which in comprehend Able English Means that the Twenty four hours of the Day Are divided into three equal periods of work the first period or first trick being from Midnight to 8 a. Ai., the second from 8 a. In. To 4 p. Rn., and the third from 4 p in. To Midnight. It is hard work. The dispatcher is not permitted to go to his meals and the Only Relief he gets is when a Lull in his work permits him to take a Little tramp about the office. The Day hours Are the busiest time for the Dis Patcher and at this time he usually has an operator at his desk who copies the orders and instructions and thereby relieves him of considerable work. It takes a a great Deal practice much More experience and a unusual abundance of that virtue called conscientiousness to make a train dispatcher.
