J5 -ST HOLIDAT 8EAS0X SCSHES POST AL WOKKEBS AS WELL AS OTHER Some H^lpfiil HlAts bj the PosboM- ter WbTcIi Wfll FacOIUte Work in the OtBce. A visitor to the postofflce today saw unmistakable signs of the beginning of the ChristmaB rush which annnal- ly swamps the postal clerks In work. Eren if the packages sent through the mails were invariably 8 «it by persons knowing all about sending them, their number is so great that the amount of work would be enormous; but about 90 per cent of the sendera make little mistakes which Increase the work and worry of the clerks 100 per cent . "What sort of an Item In the paper," asked the reporter, "would help you fellows out the most?" fTell them," said Postmaster C. B. Spencer, "to always put their names and addresses on the upper left band corner of their parcels." "All right." said the reporter, "thank you. I'll do that." "Just a moment Tell them, also, to be sure and not put any Christmas stamps near the government stamps, at this Is very confusing to the clerka.- ~ "All Tight, ril tell them that, too," Bald the reporter and turned to go. He had got to the revolving door when Mr. Spencer called him back. "Yon might tell the public, also, to be sure and put their stamps'in the upper right hand comer of their packages." The reporter promised to do so. "Senders of packages might like to know also," continued Mr. Spencer, "that packages containing only qier- chandise or printed matter are not to be sealed as the sealing of a package Biakes It first class, and subject to the letter rate of postage. Got .thatr "Yes Fve made a note of it Thank yon very much," and the reporter was making for the door, when he i:was stopped by Mr. Spencer's voice. "Yon might add to that last item that sealing with Christmas seals is the same as sealing with mucilage." rYes sir." ^'And you might also add that it is of the highest Importance that packages are securely wrapped and properly addressed." "I'll do It" ~ "And while you're about it you might as well tell them to be sure and have the right amount of postage. A postal employe will weigh the package for them Mid determine the necessary amount" "All right, I'll tell them that too." "It Isn't necessary to give them the impression that the postal rules are too rigid. You might say that such expressions as 'Merry Christmas,* and 'Happy New Year" may be in­ closed in any package and that they may write or print, 'Don't open until Christmas,' on the outside of their packages." "I'll do that too, Mr. Spencer. Thank you very much for your information." The reporter with his pad full of notes turned to go. Through the revolving door he went, and down the stone steps. He had proceeded half way across the street, when he heard a voice calling to him. He retraced his steps. "Say, I forgot something," said Mr. Spencer. "You might also tell them that they should register every valuable package, as thereby they can obtain the greatest security. The registry fee is "ten cents in addition to. the postage. The postofflce department now pays an indemnity on all matter registered, up to $50 on - first class matter and up to $25 on ^hlrd and fourth class matter. If they desire a sender's return receipt all they have to do is to ask the clerk for It You understand that?" "Yes, but say I've just begun to realize that there's something to this sending Christmas packages. How many things has a person got to think of to do It right?" "A good many but hundreds of packages get through the mail all right" "That may be true," said the report er still unconvinced; "but ifs an awful lot of work and worry to do right." "Worry and work!" said Mr. Spencer; "think of the clerks!" The reporter did so and left without' a word. .DTCIIBS OF SSO^, Joplln, Mo.^ Dec.^16:—^A ^ow storm th^t swept southwest Missouri yester- di^contlnued until early today. .The preelpltatlon here was about six Inches.

Many persons know that certain ar- teor piercing shells have soft metal caps on,the point with the result of grater effectiveness over those not so provided, but the way in which the cap acts is not fieneralty well understood. A needle may be driven into a board with a hammer when it is thrust, througb a cork, whereas it would break off unsupported. Many have thought tliot the Roft cap supports the hard point of the projectile in the xame way. A BrltlKb authority who has given much study to the mutual action of the projectile and urmur states tb^it a shell frequently foll.s because of the fact that a vt-ry sumll piece of the point Is forced back into the mu8 .s. thus splittiUR it A Inrtrcr piece is then similarly forced bjuk. and so on. The main itdvautase of ihv uuft cap, in the opinion of this aiitborlty. Is to prevent such splitting.—UurptT's Weekly. Praise For the Sardine. It Is eucouriiKiu^ ID tht^edays. when everything nice is condemned by scientific faddisUi as misty, to have the high authority of the London T.aqct>t in suppiart of the popular theorj' that the sardine is of greut dietetic value. The sardine Is good, the I^ucet tells U8. because, for one thing, it encourages the consumption of oil. which tends to avoid "many Ills, and especially those jassochited with wasting diseases and gouty dispositions." This consumption of sardine oil. it adds, "prevents the .overloading of the tissues with nitrogenous waste products, and a digestible fat favors nutrition considerably. <Tbe sardine supplies also an excellent jiroportion (25 per cent) of nitrogouous material, and so it becomes a real and economical food. In addition to this the sardine has appetizing qnnliiles, and where appetite serves digestion follows." When Scotland Had a Navy.
