A dual-language cloth form retained by the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe Railway Company for use in making warning signs for farm and ranch gates. The text is printed in both English and Spanish, with the English version reading: "Gates at private or farm crossings are constructed for the personal accommodation of adjacent land-holders. This company will not be responsible for any stock killed, or other damage done by reason of gates being left open, and any person or persons leaving such gates open will be held responsible for all loss and damage resulting from open gates." The top of the work identifies this broadside as "Form 1667 Regular." We could locate no other copies of this small broadside connecting this particular Kansas railroad to the ranchers and farmers of the American West.
