From Piedmont & Western Railroad Club website - Railroad reporting marks:
Some interpolation by me:
CGW = Chicago Great Western
MRJX = Marcus-Ruth-Jerome?. Possibly a Mather refrigerator car (type R). The company rendered fat.
CMstP = Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul - a prior name for Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific (Milwaukee Road)
TIDX = TIDEWATER OIL CO.; TIDE WATER ASSOCIATED OIL CO.; TIDAL REFINING CO.; TIDAL GASOLINE CO.]
GF = Georgia & Florida Railway
MLT = ML&T = Margan's Louisiana & Texas Railroad
P&P = P&PU = Peoria & Pekin Union?
KTOX (and tank car) -unknown
I hope that this helps.
