Were he liv ing today he would still say what he said years ago. No matter if it is night. They believe in the day. They know that after darkness, the light must come. This is what he said: "A day willRcome when the only battle-field will be the market open to commerce, and the mind opening to new ideas. A day will come when bullets and bomb-shells will be re placed by the votes, by the universal suffrage of nations by arbitration of a soverign senate, which will be to Europe what the Parliament is to England, the Diet to Germany, the Legislative Assembly to France. A day will come when a cannon-ball will be exhibited in the public muse ums just as an instrument . of tor ture is now, and the people will be astonished how such a thing could have been. A day will come when these two immense groups, the Uni ted States of America and the Uni ted States of Europe, shall be seen extending the hand of fellowship a cross the ocean, exchanging their products, their industry, their arts, their genius, clearing the earth, peopling the deserts, improving crea Photo Plays of Class AT THE OPERA HOUSE.

Ad ditional clerks and facilities will be provided in order to prevent any congestion and resultant delay and damage to mail. The general public can materially assist the Post Office Department in discharging its duty by mailing their Christmas pack ages as early as practicable, which will insure their safe handling and prompt delivery. Such action will also redound to the general benefit of the public. Parcels may bear the words "NOT TO BE OPENED UNTIL CHRISTMAS," or similar inscrip tion, and this, together with early shipment, insures the timeless of Christmas gifts, whereas the prac tice of mailing parcels late in the hope that they will reach their des tination on Christmas day is likely to defeat its own object through un avoidable delay due to the conges tion of the mails.

SET YOUR WATCH , t BY WIRELESS "How did I come to do it? Why, I can't claim all of the credit for it. My oldest boy, he is just starting school now, and his schoolmate who lives in another part of the town thought of it first. They contrived to pick up some second-hand apparatus, bought a few dry batteries and rig ged up an aerial over the house with iron wire. With this equipment my boy received messages, at first slow ly, then faster and faster until he could read Morse or Continental code quick as a flash. Then he bought a more sensitive detector and pair of ear phones and now he can listen in with any of them, read the Government weather reports from Washington and take the time flash which goes out from Arlington every day at noon. "One day about noon he called me to his wireless room in the.attic. He passed the, ear phone over to m\ and told me to listen to the time signal from Washington. I put them on and I could hear the ticking of that great clock in Washington just as pla.c'y as if it were in the same room. MRS.
