The Power of a Unit—Love

MANY of us have had opportunity to watch the operations of gangs of laborers along the railroad tracks of our country. The speed with which they labor and the amount of work they can accomplish in a short space of time has been a subject of much comment.

I was very much interested not long since in watching such a gang of men transferring to a flat car a pile of heavy rails which were lying in a ditch beside the track. These men stood shoulder to shoulder, and at the word of command they stooped and each grasped the rail, at another word the rail was lifted alongside the car, at another, it was tossed upon the flat car. In a comparatively short time the pile of rails had all been transferred.
