The boys ahve to toe the "mark," but they know from experience that they will get fair treatment at his h and s and faithfulness in their work will be rewarded.  A thing that has raised Mr. Fitch even higher than he was before in the estimation of the employes of the operating department of the road is his action in regard to the ball that is to be given by the Brotherhood of Locomotive Fireman of Marquette Thanksgiving evening.  Notwithst and ing the fact that there is a regular passenger train leaving Houghton at 2:00 pm and those who wish to attend the ball might very properly be asked to use that train, Mr. Fitch placed a special train at the disposal of the firemen and it will leave Houghton at 4:30.  There will also be a return train, and ball tickets will be honored for passage from both St. Ignace and the "soo."  The train is furnished the fireman free of charge.  It is such things as this that make Mr. Fitch so popular with his men, and if the reader does not believe that the genreal manager is respected by every man on the line, from sectionh and  up, just let him ask any employe to be convinced.
