Annual Agricultural Grim Reape r Railway Express AgencyObserves 100th Birthday The 100th anniversary of railway express is being observed today by the Hallway Express Agency. It was on March 4, 1939, that W. F. Harnden began an express service between New York and iiostbn, carrying small parcels in a carpetbag. Later he initiated the Boston and New York express car and subsequently employed Henry V/clls as his Albany agent. Eventually Wells pushed the express business to Chicago and St. Louis, and from there established [he Wclls-Fargo stage coach and pony . express routes into the Far West. That was about the period of the gold rush. In 1918 seven express companies of the Nation were combined .into the American Railways 'Express Company. Three eastern companies af- feted by the combine were Adams Express Company, United States Express Company and Wells-Fargo Express Company. After the 10- year lease of the American Hallways Express with the railroads expired the name was changed to the Bailway Express Agency with the principal railroads of the/ United States controlling the company. Today the express company carries anything "from a package of pins to elephants." In Conne'Jsville there is a staff of 10 employes and from here two truck lines to Uniontown, Morgantown and Fairmont are operated daily. In the United States the express oompany has 53,000 employes, operates over all railroads and is the only organization furnishing air express service. There are 15,000 trucks operating in the Nation.

Whatever Ing about the hard luck of finding bunched trumps against you, If the bidding of one opponent has advertised to you the length of his partner's holding. That is just what he has done if he has made bids of three other suits. At the most he can have only one trump himself, and he is more likely to have none if he has bid the other suits In irregular order. In that case, he probably has five cards of his first bid and four each in the others. (Dealer: Wes^ Neither side vulnerable.) A bid of 1-Club by West started the suit-showing on this deal. After ,\vo passes. South doubled, wherc- '.pon West bid 1-Heart, North 1- 5pade. South 2-Spades and West 3- Oiamonds. This bid should have made it clear to North that West, LUI accurate shower of his suit lengths, had Qve clubs and four each spadea were out against North, East had them all. North, however, bid 3-Spades and East doubled,, counting on his powerful partner.jto pick off a lot of side tricks and: also to be able to double any takeout. This contract was defeated two tricks, for a very bad score to North and South, and a very good one to Bast aoid West. At another table of the same tournament, the bidding went exactly the same up to the point of West's 3-Diaraond bid, whereupon the opponents passed and managed to set that contract a trick.
