You Might as Well Own a Watch with a Record From steam to electricity, from the invention of the first engine to the air-brake, inventors have constantly sought two things-speed and safety. The speed and safety of modern railroad traffic are made possible through carefully pre pared schedules. Back of these schedules is the Hamilton Watch, the favorite timekeeper of American railroad men. The engineer shown above is S. W. Powers. He has been with the Boston & Albany R. R. for 25 years. He runs his trains by a Hamilton Watch has for years. You might as well choose a watch not only beautifully made but also keeping time with day in-and-day-out accuracy. There is a great variety of models, for women as well as men. Prices range from $40 to $200. Movements alone, $22 (in Canada $25) and up. Send for "The Timekeeper" -an interesting booklet about the manufacture and care of fine watches. The different Hamiltons are illustrated, and prices given.
