"I give it to my children when they show the slightest symp toms of being croupy, and when I have a cough or cold on the lungs a very few doses will relieve me, and by taking it for a few. days, I soon get rid of the cold."

' Postmaster JL 'Walter " Payne, in conversation wit,h. THE,?WS man Wednesday, said: "Maifar Paris peo ple have the idea that they are not allowed to send Christmas, narcel post packages through the 1mail4ei cause of the curtailing of transpor tation facilities by order of- the-Fuel- Administration." A number of in quiries had been made '-at the local postoffice concerning this matter. Mr. Payne stated further that the ieport had been - caused largely by newspaper articles announcing that the railroad officials at Chicago had requested people to delay their par cel post shipments for a while on account of the congested condition of the train service. This situation, he explained, exists only in Chicago and has no effect on local conditions. The order was not made by the Fuel Administration or the Postoffice department, but was merely a re quest of railroad officials to:Chicago neonle. and Paris people need have on apprehensions regarding mailing Christmas parcels post packages. "But," added Mr. Payne, "please ask the people to mail their pack ages as soon as possible. The rush is already on and we expect to be very busy from now on, but will take care of everything offered." o HOLIDAY GIFTS The A.' J. Winters Co., your head quarters for holiday gifts.

THE FOURTEENTH CENSUS ONE OF MOST IMPORTANT That the fourteenth decennial census, on which the actual work will begin January 2, 1920, is to be the most important ever taken is shown by the fact that the act of Congress providing for this census expressly increased the scope of the inquiries so as to include forestry and forest products, two subjects never covered specifically by any previous census. The inquiries to be made relating to population, manufactures, mines, quarries ana agriculture were also extended in their scope. The statistics to. be gathered on mining will include all oil and gas wells. Many startling developments in this important branch of the na tion's resources are looked for. The complication and gathering of for estry and forest products statistics, will be in charge of a special force of experts. These statistics will be much in demand, revealing to busi ness men and public officials the sit uation of the United States in re gard to its present wealth of raw matei ials, especially forest products, so much needed for housing and building purposes.
