While the Christmas business at the local postofhee exceeded that of any pre vious year, all incoming letters and pack ages were delivered on the same day as received. In order to accomplish this extra help and vehicles were engaged and .the regular employes worked overtime until the last letter and package was sort ed and delivered each day.

The test was ascending a steep moun tain path, approximately eight miles, carrying regular field equipment, within a two-hours' limit. The ages of the men ranged from 18 to 52. Twenty per cent of those who accomplished the feat were men or -i-l years ana over. Marine officers regarded the result of the test as a decided indication that trained middle age can more than hold its own with the husky stripling Avhen it comes to feats of endurance. Dr. J. E. Kelly, author of : The High Road to Health, suggested a novel physi ological reason for the failure of youth ful marines to measure up to tests suc cessfully passed by veterans in middle life. "A man's body is not mature until all his bones have united," said Dr. Kelly, "and that process is not completed until his age of 28 or 30. Prior to that the body must give an important share of its vital energy to the business of growth and to that extent the immature man is at a disadvantage in competitive feats. "Every bone is in three parts, a shaft and two extremities. Antecedent to ma turity the connection between those parts is carilaginous, allowing opportunity for growth. The last of the bones to unite firmly is the femur, or thigh bone, of which the head does not unite with the shaft until 28 and sometimes not until 0. "Ihe marine living a vigorous and healthy life should be better at 40 than an ordinary man at 25. We lose a great deal of our energy, strength and mental and physical ability by not taking ade quate exercise." New York Sun. ( tic has only to ask one's self.

I think that his Majesty docs not want of us a tem poral offering. I am myself without even a stipend to which I am entitled, and the stipends that my brethren re ceive they turn over for the advance ment of the missions."
