Latest Novelties in
Tobacco Jars and
America Ahead of Europe
in Handling of Mail
PARIS. Jun. 18. ? From investiga
tion into the operation of the English
and Continental railway mail service
it may be doubted if Americans have
yet realized the advantages of a par
cels post or form any adequate idea
of the demands that will be made on
your mail service. If Americans take
hold of the idea as the Europeans
have done it will be necessary for the
Postoffice Department to not only ex
tend its present facilities and intro
duce new one wherever possible, but
to replace hand labor with automatic
machinery wherever conditions per
The French authorities are deeply
interested in an American automatic
system for the exchange of mail be
tween trains running at high speed
and the stations. Moving pictures of
a demonstration of this system be-;
fore the American postal officials have
been exhibited in Belgium. Germany,
Austria Italy and Spain, and France,
and will be shown in England and
M. Ma* on, chief of the Bureau de
Corresp .idance Internationale says
that th} French authorities have 1
clung ti the old system of exchanging i
mail by hand, with the train proceed- i
ing scarcely faster than a walk, be- 1
cause tests were made with devices i
heretofore presented have been very i
unsatisfactory on account of failure
to work and destruction of mail. ]
This sounds very much like the catch- i
er-arm system of the United States, <
which has been in operatiou forty 1
years. Another feature of the French I
postal system that would operate ?
against an automatic system of mail
exchange is that a receipt is given
every time an exchange is made.
In 1898 there were no exclusive
mail trains in France; now there are
three Buch trains?Paris to Lyons,
Paris to Lille and Paris to Erquelines.
Comparatively little newspaper mail
is carried on these trains. The most
important Is the Paris to Lyons train
which makes but three stops, though
it passes through about sixty towns.
All international trains de luxe carry
mail but give the minor towns tho go
The samo system is in UBe in Eng
land that has been in effect since 1848,
with little improvement or alteration.
This Is known as the Dicker appara
tus, a combination of ropes, chains,
posts and bars. There are in Great
Itritaln seventy-thre traveling postof
fices, composed of 226 especially con
structed carriages, 159 of which are
fitted with mall catching and deliver
ing apparatus. The number of sta
tions equipped with this device is
There are two exclusive mail trains
of ten cars each. These are the "up"
and "down" specials. They run be
tween London and Aberdeen, about
100 miles. No passengers are carried
and there is only one apparatus car
riage to each train.
No attempt is made to deliver news
papers or parcels on these apparatus
cars; only first class mail is han
lied; newspapers and parcels wait
tor the local trains. No more than
tour pouches are exchanged, and se'
1om this number.
Bulgar and Turk Owe
Much to Americans
CONSTANTINOPE, Jan. 18?Ameri
cana and English together helped
Turkish soldiers out of the deathtrap
which the indolence and utter stupidity '
of their officials prepared for them
Chief among the little band of men
who began quietly and unobtrusively |
to work in that appalling shambles
which was the cholera camp of San
Stefano was Major Ford.
Like most men who do big things,
lie has a little voice and an unobtru
sive manner. One finds him in a cop
ner of the club smoking room with a
tialf dozen junior American attaches
and students trying (and failing) to
Set him to tell the story of those first j
three ghastly days in the Greek school I
it San Stefano?days when the uttel I
stupidity of the Turkish officers crowd j
ed sick and wounded together into an
inferno from which, had there been
no foreign help, not a man could have
escaped alive. Men lay in heaps about
the room, and if they had no strength
to crawl to the door where a frighten-i
ed orderly set a basket of bread some-1
times and a pitcher of water less
often still, they just died of hunger
Khmet and Stupidity.
When a newspaper correspondent
asked Major Ford if the Turks simply
relied as usual on Allah and declared
that if fate willed so the men would
die and If fate willed otherwise they
would live, so there was no use in
worrying, he answered that he sup
posed fatalism, as usual, played sonte
part, but he believed that the worst
fault was pure stupidity?sheer ina
bility to organize even relief work.
The correspondent remarked that it
; is reported that when a detachment
1 gets cholera the Turks simply shut
J sick and wounded up together, know
ing the whole lot would bo useless for
further fighting, and so give them all
a chance to die and save transport.
The Major smiled grimly and said:
"That would mean isolating whole de
tachments. and if the Turks ever did
as much as that there would be some
hope. They have not got as far as
I To an inquiry how the American ar
t rangements were progressing the Ma
jor replied that a part of his work
had now been taken over by the Brit
ish Red Crescent organization at Scu
tari, Col. Surtees having sent a de
tachment to San Stefano to open a
hospital. He suggested that there was
I some difficulty at first in getting the
Red Cross units to interest themselves
actively in the relief of the cholera
patients. Of his own work and ex
; periences in the first days the Ma
jor appeared unwilling to talk; in
fact he did not appear to think that
there was anything unusual in the ef
forts he made to step in where hith
! erto every regular organization had
; been wanting.

At last night's meeting of the City
council the appointment of E. J.
Doherty as City Wharfinger was con
firmed and his bond approved.
AT THE ORPHEUM.
Last night at the Orpheum a large
crowd witnessed the pictures and spe
cialties by the Three Brattons. The
Sketch by lihea and Jammie was es
pecially well received. Judging from
the people who are patronizing the
Orpheum, this pretty little playhouse
is going to be a winner. The manage
men says there will be an entire
change of program tonight.

IMPARTIAL tests made by The Columbus Labo
ratories of Qhicago give Fisher's Blend Flour
a higher rating than that of the Dakota all-Hard
Wheat Patent Flour.
Considering that this scientific combination of East

from 20 to 25% less than what has always been con
sidered the highest grade of breadstuff, you can readily
see that it will pay you to insist on having
