spinster was standing upon the
platform outside a mail carriage
inspecting with some curiosity
the ingenous net arrangement
which sweeps in the mail bags
without the train stopping.
"Is she working all right?" ask

snatcher," replied the courteous
official, and the sniff of the angu
lar spinster almost drowned the'
snorting of the engine.
