BUSY DAY FOR CARRIERS NUMEROUS OBSTACLES WILL BE OVERCOME IF THE ADVICE IS FOLLOWED OUT A CONGES TION EXPECTED. V CTIMS OF WRECK Mrs. John Bolinger, whose hand was sprained in the wreck of passenger train No. 24 on the Pennsylvania line at Lewisville, Ind., last week, is also thought to be suffering from internal injuries of a serious nature. Mrs. W. S. Chenoweth, another local victim of the wreck, is In a very nervous condi tion. Her back is injured and she is not recovering as rapidly as was expected. TRAINMEN OFFICERS The Brotherhood of Railroad Train men held their annual election of offi cers in the Red Men's hall, which re sulted as follows: President, D. D. Minnick; Vice president, O. E. Cole man; Secretary, F. R. McFail, Jr ; Treasurerr""j"ohn Falck; Medical Exam iner, Dr. R. D. Morrow. Two candi dates were initiated into the brother-' "hood, W. B. Davenport and H. S. Diltz. i Post your Christmas presents In tended for patrons of rural routes ear ly and mark them, "Not to be opened until Christmas day." This is tfie advice of the postoffice to the people of the city and county and because of the congestion which always attends Christmas in every postoffice in the country. Delivery will be made on all rural routes in the country, Christmas. Uncle Sam deem ing Thanksgiving a sufficient holiday for the rural carriers and the day i3 one that is dreaded by the average carrier. Hard to Handle. Christmas presents are hard to han dle any time, but they are doubly hard to deliver when they are too big for the mail box and the weather is such as to keep everyone indoors. It is such days that makes the rural car rier want to eat his halo and that is usually the kind of a day the weather bureau predicts for Christmas. The postoffice department has an other purpose in making this recom mendation and It is in the interest of the clerks of the postoffice. Dispatching a great deal of mail on rural routes is as much of xa burden to them as anyone else, and it leads to congestion in the postoffice which supplies the rural routes. The post ing of packages early will prevent this and will guarantee to the sender that his gift will arrive Christmas Few, if any, would disobey the in junction on the package, "not to be opened until Christmas day." At Local Theaters Sjarcasti;. A pompous looking lawyer once chartered a hansom cab. and on reach ing his destination he only gave his driver the shilling required by law. The driver looked at the coin and bit his lip. Then In the most courteous manner he said: "Do step in again, sir. I could ha druv ye a yard or two far ther for' this 'ere." London Fun.

"Are you able to manage your hus band ?" "I don't have to. My mother liven with us." Houston Post. At the Murray. The vaudeville bill at the Murray this week is at par with the best. Ev ery act is of that high grade and stand ard that marks them headlines in all vaudeville houses. The Heidelbur? Four, harmony singers, appear this week, and they are, without doubt, the best male quartet that has ever suns in this city. Their music is so differ ent and their voices blend with so much more harmony than the average quartet. Time after time they were called upon the stage last evening. It seemed that the audience could not get enough of their singing. The ba3s solo rendered in this act is a treat to every listener. Melba's first public appearance was made at the age of six, when she sang "Comin Thro' the Rye" at a school concert. She was eager to hear what tier playfellows, and one in particular, thought of her triumph. After many indirect attempts to introduce the subject. Melba at length found herself unable to wait longer, and exclaimed excitedly: "But the concert, the concert. I sang last night, and was encored." And she. looked with interest in the face of her friend, who iinswered witheringly: "Yes, Nellie Mitchell, and I could see your gart ers." Melba. in "A Biography."

Werba, is fortunate in the posses sion of a great success this season.

The judgment of the public has been that the play is immense and Tim Murphy has created a new role unlike anything he has don before and unlike any other, yet em phasizing in its excellence and its di versity the remarkable versatility of this comedian.

HOUSE IS ALMOST BURNED TO GROUND Building on South Twelfth Street Catches Fire From An Overheated Flue. WAS SPECTACULAR BLAZE TWO FIREMEN HAD FINGERS BADLY FROSTED WHILE FIGHT ING THE BLAZE TENANTS WERE JUST MOVING IN. "The Soul Kiss." One of the most substantial suc cesses of recent theatrical history un doubtedly is that scored by "The Soul Kiss," which comes to the Gennett on Wednesday, Dec. 15, after having en joyed an 'uninterrupted run of over ten months in New York. "The Soul Kiss." as an entertainment is so breezy and wholesome that it is bound to become a favorite with all classes of theatregoers. It is some time since a musical comedy has achieved a greater tri umph than this offering of Harry B. Smith and Maurice Levi. The tune fulness of "The Soul Kiss" is amply attested by the prevalence of the song numbers in all the prominent hotels and restaurants throughout the en tire country. The production is pro duced under the direction of Julian i Mitchell, who is considered the most successful musical comedy stage pro ducer in America. His productions are known to abound in novel electric effects, colorful groupings of girls, beautiful eusembles and dainty dance numbers, executed by a 'corps de bal let" of twenty. Fire originating from an overheated flue in the residence of Peter M. Trie ber, 129 South Twelfth street, caused about $500 damages last night. The fire started at about 11 o'clock. A young man who chanced to be passing by the house at the time discovered flames ensuing from the roof and im mediately turned in an alarm from box No. 31. Only the quick arrival of the fire departments prevented the to tal destruction of the building. Mr. and Mrs. Trieber had stored their goods in the house and were just preparing to move into the building. Owing to the intense cold and the high wind that prevailed the fire was exceptionally hard to fight. A crystal of ice was immediately formed wher ever water was thrown and the work of climbing over the building in an effort to fight the flames was extrem ely difficult. The firemen had sev eral narrow escapes from serious falls. Fire Fighting Difficult. So intense was the cold that Walter Muey and John Clements, firemen at No. 3 hose house, had their fingers badly frosted while there were several other cases of frosted noses and eirs among the fire fighters. Despite the cold a large crowd of onlookers wit nessed the fire and experienced the same difficulty in keeping warm as did the firemen. Although, the blaze was gotten un der control shortly after the arrival of the departments, it was fully two hours before the fire was extinguish ed. Practically all of the household goods were removed from the burning building and the damage in this re gard was slight, it is said. The roof of the house was totally destroyed. The fire was very spectacular, the flames leaping high in the air. and fanned by the wind, raged furiously for a time.
