CHRISTIIUS POSIAGE OONI'S .S»MK OF TIIK r«).M.>H>NKST KH- HOKS THAT MAKK T«Or»LK. OI)!«(>rvp TI M'SI- \\y\\vs iiiid Your ClirlsU ki]cd «r>t'«!«t £x(ni. No'w that the Christmas season is at .hand, and everybody is iirejjaring Christmas packages, it seems that it is the psychological moment for a few pointers on what to do, or rather what not to do. to secure the greatest success in the sending of presents through the mail to your friends. Tne following "donts" secured from the local posioflice force, may assist some in averting trouble uiili their packages: Don't put any stamp on the addrcbs side of a Chrisuuaa package oiiKi than postage stamps, as the package Is otherwise uhmailahle, the indiscriminate placing of sianips being confusing to the postal eiiiidoyes, - who are good-hearted, and do not like the idea of <!ancelling stamps e.xpressing the sentiments of the day. Don't enclose in your packages three or four pages of Cliristmas sentiments, as the government has some idea of their value, and will charge you a first-class rate for a package containing them. You may j)iu in the package however. card telling by whom it is sent, and to whom it is sent, or the words "Alerry Christmas.' Don't put a padlock on your Christmas package. The mail' clerks are generally pretty honest, and ihe gov er^nient disnnproves of such nil in:;in nation against its honesty, and charges a first-class rate. Don't try to make a postcard tak- the place of a Christmas tree. Card.-, •with tinsel _on them are -absolutely barred from the mails. Don't neglect to address pa'"': age. The postal employes are ver> bright men, but the mind reader.- among them arc very few and fa; between. Your nome may not be v pretty one, but if you will put it ii a comer of your package, it may !» of Imatcrial assisianci' In reiuriiing tf you any i>arcel that .vou may bav( jnlaaddressed.; Don't put a one-cent siamp on : two-pound packa>;e. U.TI.S.-J you wan lo'jilay a Joke on your.sdf. llncb Satn Is as cheap as a Chlnpso sfr vattt, btit its hard to slip one ov(»r oi BtampB on your packnsc. Don't trj' to send household furni ttite through the mail. The postn clerics are' not professional wevijh lifters, and be-sidcs the weight limi of packages through the mail is foui pounds. Don't stand in the stamp window to wisp packages. Of course, the stamp clerk likes to watch you. and the people who are waiting In line be hind you don't object at all to the delay, but there is a desk nearby at •which you could do your wra'pi)inF much more easily and quickly. Don't expect postal employes tc •wrap your packages. This, of course is amone their regular dut.,?.-:. but j-or should Jjave some heart and cons!d.">bow they are rushed a* Christm.T time. Besides, with a little practice you can wrap your ova packages.

BIRXED BEFORE PAID FOB. N'ewspapers from Topeka to Fort Scott are giving space these days to a reminiscent story of the time when I'le Kansas. Nebraska & Dakota rail- ;ead was completed between the two cUics named and the first train was run over the wobbly "streaks of rust" en December C ISSC. The story fails .o mention, however, that John Fran- U and (feorge A. Bowlus, of Allen ':;:n!y. were among the prime movers ;n that road and- had tender little ! fipes of becoming railroad magnate.-; • :iich were blighted by an early f:iist. The road was taken over by i:i!;ers before completed and neither !!<-n county nian ever became presi- .'nt, tliough they were magnates long : :!.-iij ^h to own passes over most of • >e lines in the country an "exchange ; courtesies" granted them on the •Tingth of their prospects. The Oarnett Xems says: According • > Eome of the old settlers llie train ' composed of old fashion coaches I better than a freight caboose, a iiall engine not much larger than • (i>e used now as threshing engines, Mcli had a tall smoke slack with a K round top. It is said the offlctuls announced ' I' tiain would he through here on a i;aln date and many citizens were : tlie ilepot to watch it come in. It i.' -.1' naiembtred whether any Garnetl f.jilo rode on the train the firat iiii. It arrived in Garnctt soon after :f o'clock in the morning, and' .stoi)- i .'fd long enough for some of the road (ificlals to make short talks to th"* people w"'io were at the depot.

One of the most interesting pres- , cntB Uie Register kuowa of as being In preparation for several lola people is a book mark made from an original design by Rev. Carl Nau. The deslgna often represent a scene in the library of the person who is to receive the gift, tables, chairs and book-cases being shown, and from the drawim^; an electrotype is mado which has the name of the library's owner and a place for numbering the book. Tlir t>ook plates are artistic and must prove a treasured gift to the recplent. 7be Regte ^r knows this much about it for it oas act<>d as go-between between Rev.
