"Big Salaries are paid to telegraph operators who become expert. The demand for telegraph operators is rapidly increasing every day and the beginner receives a salary of $50.00 to $60.00 per month. The chief dispatchers of many railroads receive an annual salary of thousands of dollars and have the very best opportunity for promotion to the highest executive offices in the company."
