It would not be surprising, says Har

Washington connected by tubes, en
abling letters nnd parcels to be for
warded in as many hours as it now
takes day s. The telegraph companies
will be seriously affected by ths new
The operation is ery simple. Tho
letters are placed in a leather tube or
carrier, which fits snugly into the pneu
matic tube. Then n blast of air from be
hind, or tho suction of air from the
front, or a combination, of tho two
methods, forces tho carrier and its con
tents forward. As the friction soon
wcara out tho leather carriers, Amer
ican genius will be called upon to In
vent a metal carrier on "ball bearings."
With leather tubes about 90 per cent. cI
tho power applied Is lost in overcominjer
friction and in waste, only tea per cent,
of the total force applied being used to
propel the carrier.
The charge for sending pneumatic
