provides that they shall furnish the men necessary to handle the mails and to load them into the mail cars under the direction of a transfer clerk, a federal employee. Held that railroad companies are not liable for personal injuries resulting from the negligence of one of their employee while he was engaged in so loading mail, because his work at the time was work of the government, under control of a government gent. P. 309.

160 Miss. 850, 133 So. 656, affirmed.
