Armour, local post- matter, vrbo states that the present building In altogether > small to handle the present volume ot business. "Tho postal authorities at Washington had no Idea that the parcel post service would be taken up when the present building was con. attracted In 1905," explained Mr, Armour. "The parcel post service was started in 1912 and it ' s greatly Increased the work of the post office. Tho large number of packages which Is handled through tho local post office tako up a great deal ot room and the crowded conditions make It Impossible for the postal employes to do their Work aa efficiently as they could With more room." Want Cooperation Mr. Armour reports that the lo- fcal postofflce la now handling about 1,000 sacks of mall per day and In order to handle the immense amount ot mall, he Is asking the business firms of the city to help the post office employees toy doing their business with the post office earlier In the day Instead of waiting until the last thing In the day's work. In order to get the business men to help the post office service by mailing tholr parcels and letters earlier and ottener, Mr. Armour has mailed all the firms In the city a copy of the schedule of mall trains, so they can look up to* x- rival and departure of the malls, N*w **a*ral nullalne} .

" Phone 13S5. 11-lOt Thsra stood fat, dear, old Daddy a andtr, his maglo dust-pan tucked under Ma arm. The Twins found a latter from the Fairy Queen one morning under their porridge dishes on the breakfast table. Or rather Nancy found It under hers, for, of course, ft letter cannot be under two porridge dishes at once. The letter said: "Dear Twins: 'Mother Cloose and Daddy Gander asked me to send you word that they have Invited tlia Riddle Lady to Mother Goose Land to spend a few day*. "She Is going to stay at Mrs. John'a house, or rather, at the House-That-Jack-Bullt, for it's the same thing. Mrs. John, being Jack and Jill's mother, people call it Mrs. John's, you know. "Everybody In Mother Goose Land lovea the Riddle Lady because they have to much fun when she la then. Every day aha asks a riddle and gives a prist to the person who guesses the answer first. "Mrs. John will serve tea and cakes, or maybe cider and doughnuts, and I am sure everybody would be very glad to hav* you Put on the magle shoes you will find hidden behind the umbrella stand, and then wish yourselves up on the. roof. «Daddy Oander will be wnltlng for you with, his magic dust-pan. "I hope that you all have a very good time. "Lovingly yours, "The Fairy Queen." "Oh, goody!" cried.Nancy. "Hooray!" shouted Nick. "What's all the fuss aboutt" aaked Cook, coming in from the kitchen. "When your Mother's away, I don't Bee how you can be so happy!" "Oh, but we're going away, too," said Nick. "Shi" whispered Nancy. "What's that?" cried Cook, "An* where ar* you going, I'd like to know." "Oh, Just out to play," said Nick. "My aakeal" said Cook. "The way you two do gallivant around outdoors I* the queerest thing! Done all day sometimes! And at waya talking about fairies and brownlos and things!" , But she went away still talking to herself about never knowing what children were up to nowadays. No sooner had her apron strings disappeared around the corner of tho kitchen door than the Twins slipped down from their places and flew, out to the hall. And there, just as the note had snltl, were the tiny shoes tucked behind thn umbrella stand. The Twins slipped them on and making a wish found themselves Instantly on top of their own roof. But was It their roof? No. It couldn't be!—their roof didn't have (lowers and trees growing on It and a brook tlnlillns merrily along between mossy bunks. "Hn, ha, ha!" roared a merry voice. "What makes ynn look so surprised? You'd think you'd never been to Mothor Goose Land before 1" There stood fat, dear, old Daddy Gander, his magic dust-pan tucked under his arm. He laid it down and'said a charm, and Instantly it spread out like a floor. "Jump on," he said. "They are waiting for us on Pippin Hill."
