PREFACE
A fact, a rule, a law or a principle of mechanics, when stated simply and alone, is hard to remember-especially so to men who do not make daily use of the statement.
Recognizing that the same thing can be remembered, and the truth and value of it be quicker recognized, if clothed in the garb of a story, a trite saying, or a poem, the author commenced these insignificant little preachments some ten years ago.
He wanted to teach some things to locomotive engineers, firemen, master mechanics, etc., and took this way to impress on their minds the lessons.
Of the true life of the men who operate and maintain the American locomotive, no man can write, talk or think understandingly, except he has devoted some years of his life to living and working and sympathizing with them-and this the writer has done.
Preface
Under the pen name of John Alexander, these little sketches went out to the railroad world through the columns of Locomotive Engineering, and were received, enjoyed and
appreciated far beyond their true merits.
The author now gathers them into this little volume, partly for the benefit of those of his old friends who enjoy such things, and partly for his own satisfaction.
JOHN A. HILL
