  PUSH ROOT

  Ever since the T M & P has been built, the people have been trying to find out why it was made so crooked. At a special meeting of the Push Root Civic Club a standing committee was appointed to investigate this matter and make a report. In order to make the proper report all the officials were interviewed and each gave a different reason all of which conflicted. One said it was on account of the grade, another claimed that they wanted a continual change of scenery in order to give passengers their money's worth. Each and every one had a different reason, none of which were accepted by the committee, with due apologies to the interviewed. The committee then took it upon themselves to pass over the road and find out for themselves. They did so and being a standing committee they all stood up on the back platform from one end of the road to the other and back. After prayerful and careful consideration they submitted the following report to the Civic Club last week.
  "To the Push Root Civic Club: Greetings; Know Ye by These Presents, To Whom It May concern, etc: That we standing Committee on Curves and Tangents appointed by this club to investigate the why and wherefore of the curves on the T M & P do submit the following report:
  "After interviewing all the officials on the line and not being able to arrive at a sensible conclusion we took it upon ourselves to ride over the line to the county seat and study railroad conditions enroute. We didn't find anything gong over worth mentioning in regard to the curvilinear appearance of said railroad. While waiting for the train to return we walked down the tracks of the B&O to watch a gang of section hands at work. While there a train blew for the upper end of the yards and every man straightened up to watch the train approach, pass and go out of sight. They lost ten minutes, by actual timing. This solved the problem.
  "The T M & P being a real railroad they naturally want their section hands to act just like they do on larger roads. Now if they have great long straight stretches of track the hands will loose too much time watching the train approach, pass and disappear, therefore the curves were placed therein." This report was presented to the G M, who says this is the official reason why the railroad was built so crooked.
  "Therefore, fellow club members, we your committee on Curves and Tangents do recommend that the people adopt this explanation and forever let the matter rest in peace."
  The report was adopted as read and spread upon the minutes of the Club, after which they adjourned with a clear and unanimous conscience singing the old familiar song.
  Blest be the tie that binds, The trail to the ground, That carries the car without a jar, As it goes the curves around.
  The same old contentions that come up every year is here again, namely: The change of school books. As usual no provisions have been made as to which almanac is to be recognized as official., Hagerstown or Frederick. this matter has been brought up several times and it seems the Book Board pays no attention to it. This winter a bill will be prepared and sent to the legislature for passage that will compel the Book Board to look after the matter. Two kins of sheets will be used to bring this matter to the attention of our law makers. One paper sheets and the other Jim Sheets.
