'"TheWatch of Railroad Accuracy" The Favorite Timekeeper of American Railroad Men Accident-insurance terms suggest how safe is traveling upon American railroads. The mortality on our railroads during 1920 averaged but one passenger in every twelve million carried. Credit for such a record belongs to the high efficiency of American railroad men, air brakes, block signal systems, steel cars, and the care with which complicated running schedules are lived up to. For aid in living up to these complicated schedules, the Hamilton Watch is the favorite timekeeper of American railroad men. For example, Conductor N. J. Lorang, appearing in the illus tration, runs the "Peoria Flyer" on the Rock Island. He has been a conductor for 17 years; he has owned his Hamilton Watch for 22 years. To use a Hamilton for a gift, prize, or reward is to present a time keeper valued for its excellent appearance as well as for its accuracy. Hamilton Watches are made in various models, from men's sturdiest types to ladies' beautiful bracelet styles. Prices range from $40 to $200; movements alone, $22 (in Canada, $25) and up. Send for "The Time keeper," an interesting booklet about the manufacture and care of fine watches. The different Hamiltons are illustrated, and prices given. HAMILTON WATCH COMPANY - - Lancaster, Pa.
