In presenting this collection of remedies for emergency locomotive work, it is impossible to make the claim of originality for all of them. All available sources of information on the subject have been freely used, and if credit has not been given for special devices to any particular publication, it is because, in many instances, it is difficult or impossible to properly do so, and because acknowledgment is hereby tendered to the whole range of railroad technical journalism in this country. A criticism will probably be made by many on account of the small amount of space devoted to the A ir Brake, whose diseases are such a prolific source of discussion. The reason for this apparent neglect lies in the fact that an authoritative A ir Brake Catechism, by Robert H. Blackall, has been published, which should be consulted. An apology should perhaps be offered for the chapter onE ngine Repairs, in which there are illustrated a number of handy devices used in the shops. These, of course, fail to come within the limits of road emergencies, but may be considered to be valuable where time is an important element, demanding an instant recourse to some means of effecting what practically amounts to emergency repairs. Finally, in the chapter on the First A id to the Injured a few simple directions have been given for the application of bandages and the treatment of injuries, as well as the movement of the patient by men who are not nurses or physicians, and who have no knowledge of the location of the bones, arteries, or other parts of the body, but who can nevertheless give such temporary aid that suffering will be alleviated and possibly life saved. It is hoped the perusal and study of this book will enable the reader to cope with such accidents to his locomotive as may occur in service. G. L. Fowler, M.E.
