IDITAROD COMPLAINT ON MAIL SERVICE IS WRONG In tho complaints made nt Idltarod and other Interior places about the mall service It Is apparent that Idlt rod expected Its allowance was 475 pounds each trip but Postmaster Hick cy points out that this amount Is the total allowed for all tho places on tho trip. On this trip are Included Knlk, Takotnn, Susitna, McGrath, Flat and Idltarod so that each only gets a mis orably small amount. Mr. Hlckoy bo Iiovcs this amount Is ridiculously small and he suggests that a separate mall contract should bo provided for Knlk. By tho time tho 475 pounds passod by all tho other places and the quota for each place Is taken out thoro is very little left for Idltarod. It is well that the people of Idltarod should be como acquainted with theso facts as It will aid them In making a fight for a more generous supply of mail which they certainly ought to have.?(Sew ard Gateway.)

Ho talked from Wash ington with the head of tho Panama Pacific Exposition at San Francisco. A striking event in the history of tho telephone, as tho President says, it stirs the imagination to think of the human voico finding Its way clear across the continent. And when wo consider that tho inventor of the tele phone Is still alive, the Immensity of the advance in so short a time strikes the imagination still more. What a pity that the rapidity of tho material and scientific advance of tho nineteenth :ind the twontioth centur ies has not been accompanied by cor respondingly rapid changes in the mental and moral qualities of man him self. What a pity that men today do not stand on tho same sccuro eminence of admitted superiority, as compared with the men of other days, that science stands on when compared with tho science proceeding the last cen tury. Dazzled by tho achievements in scientific lines, the world is at times Inclined to assume they do. ' But at tho moment of soemlngly most se cure assumption there comes a world war and men are seen reacting to tho same old human and historic Btimull. Man has progressed, but tho pro gress Is slow. His work outruns him. Human nature ic the most stable thing In hlBtory. Compared with It tho mighty empires that have come and gone are merely shifting shadows.? (Chicago Herald.)
