Packages need only be handed In, then weighed, and the amount of the postage paid, then the postal clerks will take care of the rest. An official licker is on band to paste on stamps and fac ilitate the handling of the Christ-, mas packages. This will be the first Christmas rush for the parcel post and the popularity of this way of sending is apparent from the large amount of business now being han dled in this way at the Abilene office.

The "X" in "Xmas," like the one at school, stands for an unknown quantity. - Dr. Anna Shaw and her friends who called upon the president a few days ago, discovered, that a sphinx-like character is not exclu sively feminine. There Is one man now who will be allowed to call your dog a worth less cur, and that is the county as sessor. The county assessor can sympa thize thoroughly with the Judge at a baby show. He has to set a value upon one family's precious white soaniel. and another's miserable houn'. A woman's experience In house keeping through the h. c. of 1. period ought to make her somewhat of paragrapber, because she knows how to make something out of nothing. The other day a high, set girl was aamonisnea ror mo ; way iue handled a baby. "Yes," she admitted. I know I pick her op just like J do a basket ball." Some folks use happiness as though it were on a meter, and they would surely bave to pay for it later on. . One of our fondest hopes is real ized. A man has gone to the dic tionary to find out about a picot, so he could get the gist of one of our paragraphs. We bave been accused of being too undecided. We know It. Even our hair would never part in the middle. but some of them got back on the train. Those boys were herded to the back end of the train, and when they reached Sand Springs they, were put off, and the train pulled out and left them. To make sure, that they walked home, the conduc tor on the train following was warned by wire to watch for the boys at Abilene and at Sand Spring and see that they did not get on. Salina Journal. HAD TO WALK BACK HOME. Salina Lads Were Put Off at Sand Springs. If you want to know how many railroad ties there are between Sand Springs and Salina you should ask some of the Salina young men who walked in Sunday night. For some time a bunch of boys has been, in tbe habit of stealing a ride to Abi lene oa unday and then stealing a ride back home on one of the night trains. Last night the conductor on Union Pacific train No. 109 decided that It was time to put a stop to the practice, and the porter was instructed to pull them off brake beams, the blind baggage and the other places where they were lodg ed to make the trip to Salina. This was done at the crossing at Abilene, DR. BLAYNEY SPEAKS AT JUNCTION CITY The Rev. Dr. F. S. Blayney- went to Junction City today where he will make tbe principal address at tbe annual "Patrons' Day" of the Junction City schools. Dr. Blay ney's ability to give public addresses makes him much in demand. SALINA CONSIDERS NEW RULE Two Years Ago the Commission Form Lost Out, Salina, Dec 17. At a meeting of thp city council an ordinance providing for a special election to rote on the proposition of commis sion form of government for Salina was Introduced and referred to a committee with instructions to re port oa Jt at a special meeting of the council next Monday night. A similar proposition was defeated here two years ago.
