Pub. n, 2t 30 dec 7 14 21 28 GOT MAIL THROUGH QUICKLY Efficient System That Was in Use by the Romans Some Hundreds of Years Ago. While the Roman postal service of ancient days was, of course, a crude system, yet the mails were forwarded with considerable speed. The system of couriers on horseback was borrowed from the Persians, who. according to Xenophon, had established it under Cyrus. The Roman adaptation of this was the best system of transmitting letters among the anieents. All along the great Roman roads sta. tions were erected at distances of five or six miles from one another. At each of these stations 40 horses were con stantly maintained, and by the help of relays it was easy to travel 100 miles in a day. These services were intended for the state only, it being imperative to secure the rapid interchange of oflelal communications. In the time of Julius Caesar the system was so well organ ized that of two letters the great sol dier wrote from Britain to Cicero at Rome the one reached its destination in 26 and the other in 28 days. Private citizens were obliged to re sort to the services of slaves, and it was not until the end of the third cen tury that there was an establishment of a postal system for private persons by the Emperor Diocletian; but how long this system endured history does not inform us. The supply of horses and their m ntenance was compulsory, and only thb emperor could grant exemption from it. A Trail of Faith. A pastor in western Pennsylvaala. who until recently was a believer in the literal answer to prayer, now is, with some trepidation, taking stock in his faith. Not long ago a visiting fellow clergyman prayed fervently in his pulpit to this effect: "May the brother who ministers to this flock be filled full of fresh veal and new sigor." The startled pastor says that he doesn't object to fresh veal in modera tion, but does object to having one of these new breakfast foods forced upon him. British Humor and Ours. Some Americans think that they do not like British humor. That is be cause they expect it to be like Amer. ican humor. They might as well dis like the charming Surrey hills because they are not like the Rocky mourn American humor is original, quick and striking. It insists on your atten ton like a lively terrier. British humor is quiet and confi dent. It sits and purs by the fire un til you come and stroke it. It is an acquired taste, but it is worth ao Window Box Potatoeo. Among the suggestions that have been advanced for the increase of the which the beautiful will be made to give way to the practical. Berlin and other Germap cities are noted for the enthusiasm with which the women en gage in the cultivation of flowers and in this cultivation the window baoes are made to play an important purt in the beauty of bloom ad the grace that these window boxes shall be iven ever to the grewing of pot. tosa, latemational Race.

Barnett Zapp said as he glanced over the bill of 'fare in Wasserbauer's Restaurant. "Some theayter managers is very lucky that way," Louis Birsky, the real estater, said. "How lucky?" Zapp demanded. "Because what the police calls bad, looks awful good to a whole lot of peo ple. Yes, Zapp, all that a show needs is for the police to call it immoral, and a couple of orchestra seats down front becomes right away as valuable as two perfect matched pearls from ten carats apiece," Birsky said. "The next time I get roped in for such a thing I would go to an optician not a speculator and buy a pair of hun dred dollar field glasses, and stand up for a dollar in the back of the gallery. I could save a lot of money that way." "And was it so bad like the police said?" Zapp asked. "Well, I'll tell you," Birsky replied. "You wouldn't think it to look at a policeman what a delicate disposition such a feller has got. A New York policeman will get red over something in a theayter which for years respect able young fellers in the old country has been taking their mothers to see and neither of 'em turned a hair, y' understand. Also down at Coney Island a policeman will hide his face and holler for the police because a lady has got on a bathing suit which if one of them actresses wore it in a 'Follies' show where they walk across planks over the heads of the so-called two dollar seats, y'understand, com pared with the other ladies in the show you would think she was dressed for starting out in an open oltermo bile to call on her husband's rela tions." "Was the show so bad like the po lice said?" Zapp inquired once more. "Well, I'll tell you," Birsky repeat ed, "when the police receives a letter that a show is immoral and they should please look the matter up and oblige, Zapp, they try to put them selves in the place of the average theayter goer; but the only thing is, they got an idee that people which goes most to the theayter was never in such a place before in their lives. In particular, when it comes to a show like the Russian ballet where the orchestra seats would cost ive dollars apiece at the box office If they was for sale there, the police thinks that excepting the ushers everybody In the theayter is visiting in New York for the first time from a place Where they still got an idea that dol wans is the latest up-to-the-minute de pign in women's outer garments, y' tmderstand, and not being experienced In posters by this here artist named $akst, they don't know whether it's 'Ben Hur' or 'David the Shepherd a ( "They Seat a Polleemen There Whieb Speaks Rmelan." in(' till the curtain ges up and shows the inside of the harem with all the ladies not yet dressed to re ceive company." "Naturally people from the country seein such a thing would get a shock," Zapp commented. "They would if they was there," Blsnky aid, "but actresses and actors is got to go a long way to shock a New York audience. In fact, Zapp, it the policee knew their business they would arrest the two front rows of a New York audleace on looks alone, for the bad effect the faces has got on the morals of the acms and actresses. However, Zapp, su~osng that the people which goes to see the Russian ballet is as innocent as the police claims, Zapp, it wouldn't make no dif ference anyhow, because a beallet is like the deef and dumb language, Zapp, people has got to study it for years before they know what it means. In fact, Zapp, it the police continuaes to fnd this here Russian ballet is im moral, Zapp, you would see advertlse ments in the paper: LEARN TO BE A RUSSIAN SAL. LET AUDIENCE AT HOML New method.

Even the fifty cent books which the ushers tries to sell you Jon't help you any, which I picked up )ne in the aisle and read it going hoome in the subway, and I give you my word. Zapp, that book was just so good a description of 'Within the Law' or 'Camille' as it was of the Russian ballet."

"and the trouble with you is, Birsky, that you ain't got no imagina tion." "Maybe I ain't," Birsky agreed, "aber when the book says: 'Mrs. Fa tima Harris is the favorite wife of Sultan Charles Z. Harris,' y'under stand, and a couple of hundred young ladies comes out and dances it for you, for all you understand what they are driving at they might just so well be dancing: 'This theayter with every seat occupied can be emptied in three minutes. Look around now and walk, not run,' or that the management re quests the ladles to remove their hats. I claim to got just so much im agination as anybody else, Zapp, but with this here Russian ballet it ain't enough that you should be mind read er. You've got to be a leg reader and that's all there is to it." "Might it's because you ain't ac quainted with the Russian language maybe," Zapp suggested. "You take a Russian ballet which ain't in the country two weeks, y'understand, and naturally they couldn't even talk the English language let alone dance It." "Then how did the police get on that it was immoral?" BLrky asked. "Probably they seat a policeman there which speaks Russian," Zapp said. They've got such fellers on the police force, Birsky. There is even policemen which can shake down saloon keepers in every European lan guague, and Chinese and Hebrew, also, Birsky, and besides, Birsky, what business do you got supporting a Rus sian ballet? I thought you was against the Allies." "Me against the Alliest Birsky ex claimed. "How can you say such a thing? I've got just so many custom ers which is for the Allies as against 'em, Zapp-more even, and I am per fectly neuter about this here war. Furthermore, rye been an American sitson now goiqg on twenty-two years, and I think that that oltermobile fae tory out In Detroylt is quite ritht which wouldn't give jobs except to sit sons." "Aber if everybody done the same thing, Birshy, what's going to become of the greenhornsT' Zapp asked. "It takes five years to get to be a sitson,, and in the meantime they must got to starve. Is that the idee? It's like all them advertisements you see for ex perienced salesmen. If every concern done the same thing, Zapp, a sales man would got to start in as a new beginner with at least five years ex perience as a salesmaa." "Or else He about It," Birsky said. "Aber you couldn't He about being a sitson." Zapp continued. "You've got to show the papers." "Well, maybe this here oitermobile concern says that they wouldn't pro mote nobody unless he becomes a sit son," Birsky admitted. "Even so,' Birsky went on. 'my Idee is that a feller should become a sit Man's Preference. If women only listened to men in their choice of clothes, they would always be "tailored" on the street and in public places in the afternoon. There is no uniform in which they appear that so pleases the masculine eye; but the trouble is that the Amer iman woman yields to the vagaries of fashions that are set for the French womas, and very often, sad in great mass, loses her identity. oiou like he gets ulmrriel. 11, hluhold to it for Irve, l'be:a e, if a felletr J.e'Tis marriedl for morn1 y iand hi.i \life shaiolll to brlke, lihe in't glinu to stay falith ful to her ve'ry long. ;lili if a feller beIcoIes a sitsni to get a jol, y'u:mici'r teneld. all suchl a feller ineeds is to lose his joblt aild right awayv he eloe'i,s a no goodel Amerieun ilson.

"That's nitlher here nor there." Ilirsky sa:id. "There's only one, way to look at it: if a feller makes his Ili ing in a country, he should be a slb son." "Is that so?" Zapp retorted. "Well, itf all the Americans living In Mexico would of taken out sitson papers there what would of happened to 'em ?" "The same as happened to 'em when they didn't," Birsky said. "But, any how, Zapp, might if all the Americans which went to Mexico would of be. come Mexican sitsons, they would of Americanized the country maybe, and instead of revolutions down there they would now got direct primaries and referendums and conventions and all that stuff, and instead of bull fighting they Would got moving pictures and vandeville." "Then take It the other way about," Zapp Insisted. "Supposing all the Rus sians which comes over here becomes sitsons and starts in to Russlanise the country, would we be better off it in stead of Congressmen and conventions we would got grand dukes and po. groms, and instead of moving pictures and vaudeville we would got Russian ballets, for Instance?" "Russian ballets I" Birky cried. "T'phooeel" "Then what the devil yoi are talklg nonsense, Birsky" Zapp. aid. "Aber the United States is a real country," Birky protested, "while Mexico-that's something else again." "You bet your life it is," Zapp said, "and when a feller goes to make a liv. ing In Mexico, Birsky, there's only one thlng he should ought to take out down there-not sitson papers but life Insurance."

Also, when you think you are writing poetry and when you are leading one who is practically a total stranger up to an altar, where, by previous arrangement and design, you have stationed a gentleman with power to cause you more future trou ble than you have ever dreamed of. Science tells us that something cannot come out of nothing, yet emotions seem to do this. A calm, placid lady whom you have known and trusted for years will suddenly have emotions which will create an area of disturb. ance extending for miles in all direc tions. Emotions are felt but not seen. If you could see an emotion coming with the naked eye, you might be able to avoid it. Some men can thus avoid emotions when they see their wives coming, but not when they have emo tions themselvc s Emotions are of various kinds and are variously expressed; a New York policeman expresses his with a club. and every dog with the end of his tall.-Life.

He knew trom the rustle of skirts that the oserver was a woman; yet he worked steadily on. Presently the observer spoke. "A charming landscape," she said. "Ah, you flatter me," said the artist modeatly. "Compared with the original landscape it is very poor stuff." "I meant the original," said the observer.
