It isn't always the man kwho
talks the loudest that has the most
brains or even knowledge of what
he is talking about. A music box
can make a lot of noise, but it
does not do a great deal of think
ing. There are men and women,
too, who can run the music box a
close race on both noise and
thought. Warrenton Banner.

PARCELS POST QUESTION.
Washington, D. C, Dec. 2. It is
said that an effort will be made
by the postmaster-general, backed
by the administration, to pass a
bill deducing postage on sealed
letters to one cent, and also to
carry into eiiect the long-opposed
parcels-post privileges en
joyed -by all foreign peoples, but,
through the influence ot the ex
press companies, withheld Irom
the citizens of the United States
The American citizen living in
Washington may send a ten-lb.
package by mail to London, Paris,
Berlin or Vienna, but he cannot
send the same package to Balti
more, only one hour distant, or
to Philadelphia or New York, four
and five hours distant. If the
package should weigh only four
pounds he can send it by mall for
64 cents to any of these cities, but
the four pounds to the European
destination costs only 48c. The
Postoffice Department is not re
sponsible for these outrages. They
are the result ot the monopoly
which the express companies, thru
their influence in the Senate and
House, have been able to maintain
In tho distribution of packages by
mail. In other words, the express
companies will not be able to make
so much money If the people 'ot
tho United States shall insist up
on having as good a parcels-post
service between "Philadelphia and
Cincinnati, for example, as they
have to Berlin or Paris-. C. A, S.
